Ubuntu

Reviews

This version of Ubuntu was supposed to be "enterprise-ready" as a server and as a desktop, but unless businesses like dealing with multiple hardware issues, a substandard Java environment, and a lack of proprietary Web browser plugins, I can't see how Ubuntu Linux 6.06 is ready for anything except perhaps a patch release.

Filed under

Based on the title of this treatise of mine you are, likely, safe in your assumption that I am about to tell you all, using the bestest words my mind can muster, why I stopped using MacOS X and switched over to Linux. The distro I settled on at this point is Ubuntu.

Filed under
Software

A long time ago, there was a simple debate on what kind of indenting should you be using and where should you place curly braces: it was the dispute "ANSI vs. K&R".

Fast forward more than a year later, and we see 3.0 final on the horizon. Kate OS is a Polish lightweight distribution for Linux users who want control over their system and want access to some great functionality. The lightweight part is evidenced by Xfce4 being the default desktop environment.
