Review: Zenwalk Linux

Filed under
Reviews

With the recent release of both ZenLive Linux 2.6.1 and Zenwalk Linux 2.8, this distribution formerly-known as Minislack (through mid-2005) hits it big. In a world of easy to use, installable LiveCDs like Ubuntu / Kubuntu / Xubuntu, MEPIS, PCLinuxOS, Mandriva One and others, this might be the chance to prove that the Slackware base does not impede a distro to keep up with the current standards.

While running a HTTP server such as Apache, there are a few steps an administrator has to take in order not to get easily hacked. The very basic one is to hide from the outside which software version and operting system version are running.

CLI Magic: Feh for image viewing

Filed under
HowTos

Too many Linux image viewers are tinged with little annoyances -- they take too long to load, are slow to redraw the display, have limited format support, sport inconvenient controls -- so when you want to settle on one, inevitably there's something to make you utter feh! in general discontent. Good call -- feh is the name of a speedy little viewer that packs in a surprising number of features for its size.

I was feeling daring, so I burnt the experimental Dreamlinux 2.0 XGL Edition to a CD-R, and rebooted. For a minimalistic Window Manager, Xfce has been customised to look very nice indeed.

Vincent Danen: Linux vs Mac Community... a blog response

Filed under
Linux

I read with great amusement a blog entry from Bryan O'Bryan entitled Why I ditched my Mac for Linux and some of the comments (no time to read them all; perhaps later). Instead of leaving a comment there and having it lost in the 100+ comments, I decided to respond here.

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

I recently got a chance to try out the new KateOS 3.0 alpha and beta versions, and I must say, I'm very impressed. The new release brings a number of improvements, such as OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 included by default, and all of the most recent versions of many applications.

Diction & Style

Filed under
HowTos

Over the years I have spent as much spare time as I can to get better at writing. I consider myself an adequate writer, not good, but adequate. Suprisingly I recently came across some old Unix tools that run right from the prompt and will not mangle the original text. Diction and style are not grammar checkers but instead, grammar helpers.

Filed under
HowTos

One persistent problem I used to face while using GNU/Linux was when I visited sites containing certain flash based games. The games played well but they never displayed the text embedded in it.

Transparency, principles, and the Microsoft way...

In its short but illustrious history the FOSS movement has been accused of being akin to communism. So just the other day as I was considering whether to wear my hammer and sickle shirt, I saw some Microsoft press releases that made me choke on my unpleasant dark rye bread. Microsoft Executive lauds open source? Pardon?
