Filed under
Linux

planet.sabayonlinux: Ok, miniEditions are on the way. I’m working on them since Friday (eventually!). They won’t support Equo yet, since I am actively working on something. I’m just trying the latest unstable release [of portage] and the first impression is: “eventually something good!”.

Filed under
Software

phoronix: This past week AMD raised the Linux graphics bar by not only announcing their new fglrx graphics driver, which delivers Radeon HD 2000 support, immense performance improvements, and AIGLX, but it was accompanied by an announcement that they will be delivering specifications to the X.Org development community. One of the common questions that has since come up is what will NVIDIA do in response.

PC-BSD Day 5: BSD Certification

Filed under
BSD

ruminations: The fresh install of PC-BSD was a very simple task. There was no need to make backups of important files and under Vmware the creation of new virtual computer is simply a matter of following the step in the wizard. I decided not to use disk 2 to install for instance Firefox or OpenOffice.org, but just to install the basic system that disk 1 provides. That didn’t take long.

Comparing Debian and Fedora

Filed under
Linux

etbe.coker.com.au: A common question is how to compare Fedora [1] and Debian [2] in terms of recent updates and support. I think that Fedora Rawhide and Debian/Unstable are fairly equivalent in this regard, new upstream releases get packaged quickly, and support is minimal.

“Goobuntu” must be more than a Google-branded Ubuntu.

Filed under
Linux

writelarge.com: The other barier to GoogleOS, at least for me, is the GOOGLE IS WATCHING YOU factor. I fear Google. I don’t feel like Google is as honest as I’d like them to be. Would Goobuntu be nothing more than a widgeted up install of Ubuntu that spies on you?

kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of my motivation in jumping around so much is to sniff out the general state of other XFCE distributions, in case I’m driven by a wild urge to ditch Xubuntu altogether, and move in a different direction.
