The Much Improved Hardy Heron

Filed under
Ubuntu

pctonic.blogspot: Canonical has made my birthday for the second year running. Today I received my Hardy Heron CD! I have read a lot about Hardy since it's beta was out and I was dying to try it out, so the CD was really a pleasant surprise.

I remastered PCLinuxOS in French for my neighbor

HowTos

wamukota.blogspot: One of the remarks I often read is that PCLinuxOS is an English only distro. While that is true when you download the iso, the road to make a localized remaster in another language is not so difficult for a somewhat handy linuxer.

Firefox 3.0 RC 1 takes the lead on speed

Filed under
Moz/FF

blogs.zdnet.com: The Mozilla dev team claim to have squeezed more performance out of Firefox 3.0. The betas were fast, so have the team been able to get more out of their code?

Seeing Linux clearly: Demystifying KDE and GNOME

Filed under
Software

itwire.com: Ok, you have to give some kudos to Windows: everyone knows what a window is. In the Linux world, KDE and GNOME aren’t quite as obvious. A gnome stands in your garden or inhabits the World of Warcraft, and KDE doesn’t even spell a word.

lokuhetty.blogspot: Fedora 9 [Sulphur] has been released, the Most awaited version of the Fedora series. It had also been even Rescheduled for the sake of its quality. Even During this Busy Days, I haven't Forgot to Download ASAP when it was Released. This is my Journey...

Ubuntu and the Temple of Doom

Filed under
Ubuntu

bushweed.blogspot: Honestly, why has Ubuntu become the love of the linux community? What I see is a nicely polished distro with virtually no consistent admin tools and a lot of hype. Yes you can configure your desktop, but try set up an ip route with 2 internal network cards without using a single line in the console.

My New OS - Mandriva Linux

Filed under
MDV

sufyanism.blogspot: I switched to Mandriva Linux this past week. Having tried and tested the Live CD, and verifying that everything was fine, I decided to install it on the HD.The boot was quiet, and the installation took around 15 minutes.

Angry enough at Ubuntu to spit

Filed under
Ubuntu

kmandla.wordpress: You can reinstall Grub to the drive, but the 8.04 rescue mode doesn’t give you the option to pick a different partition as the destination for Grub. Next thing I know, Ubuntu is installing itself again. I broke out of the installer, praying that it hadn’t destroyed four hours of work. It had.

Moonlighting silverlight

Filed under
Software

blogs.techrepublic.com: So this past week Miguel di Icaza (the overly caffeinated creator of GNOME) brought to us an open source version of Microsofts’ Silverlight. The project? Moonlight. Turns out it’s a browser plug-in to compete with Macromedias’ Flash.

Linux and Sun Partnering?

Linux

practical-tech.com: What happens when you get Linus Torvalds, Mr. Linux, together with Jeff Bonwick, Sun’s master of storage and creator of ZFS? Well, right now, we don’t know.

easys, some Slackware guys, and the GPL

Filed under
Linux

beranger.org: I thought I am the only fundamentalist who notices when a distro is not GPL-compliant, but it seems I was wrong. I'd like to see that newcomers are not being referred to a parasitic distro like Easys, but instead taught how to use Slackware itself.

Survey: Programmers shunning Vista for Mac OS and Linux

cnn.com blogs: “Developers,” a VP at Electronic Arts once told me, explaining why there were so many me-too Windows applications, “will walk through the desert in their socks to get to an installed base.”

Desktop Linux should address these little annoyances

Filed under
Linux

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Users are right when they say linux is not ready for desktop. And they are right when they point to some rough edges of linux. I would like to add a small point that many others have missed out.

Goodbye PCLinuxOS!! Hello gOS!!

Filed under
Linux

themarktrix.blogspot: This happened on Friday, where my very loyal PCLinuxOS system had finally shown its age. Constant desktop freezes/crashes and the signs of slowing down prompted me to go distro-hopping again.
