REVIEW : First Impression on Kali Linux 2.0

Filed under
Reviews

Kali Linux 2.0 is released on today (August 11, 2014 EST). I downloaded 64-bit full version and installed it on VirtualBox 5.0. The host computer has Intel Celeron(R) CPU N2930 @ 1.83GHz × 4 and 8 GB RAM. I assigned 5 GB RAM to Kali Linux 2.0. It is quite slow for it to run with 5GB RAM on my VirtualBox 5.0. Meanwhile, the sound always mute on every start up even you have set it before.

Playing with antiX 15

Filed under
Reviews

The antiX distribution is a lightweight operating system based on Debian. The latest release was put together using packages from Debian 8 "Jessie" and ships with SysV init software instead of systemd. The latest release, antiX 15, is available in three editions: Core-libre (233MB), Base (582MB) and Full (686MB). There are 32-bit and 64-bit x86 builds of each edition. The antiX wiki tells us that the Core edition ships with virtually no software pre-selected for us, allowing us to customize the operating system to our needs. The Base edition is for older computers, like Pentium II and Pentium III machines, while the Full edition is for more modern computers and people who want a complete desktop experience. I opted to download antiX's Full edition.

Motorola Moto G Review: Great, Bargain-Priced Android Smartphone

Filed under
Android
Reviews

Moto G has been a joy to test and use. It is lightweight, easy to hold and store in a pocket or purse, and performs nearly as well as many of the premium devices on the market.

Aside from a somewhat beefier processor and a higher-resolution screen, the Moto G could fool many users and experts alike. The new G operates like it is a much more expensive device.

BQ Aquaris E45 Ubuntu Edition review

Reviews
Ubuntu

As the first ever Ubuntu Phone the BQ Aquaris E45 Ubuntu Edition had the potential to wow and prove there's life beyond Apple and Android, but unfortunately it fails.

By simply slapping it on a budget Android handset, both Canonical and BQ missed out on releasing a handset that was tailor-made for the Ubuntu Phone experience and that could show off its full potential.

Croatian policy encourages open source adoption

Is Office 365 cheaper than OpenOffice and open source?

Indeed, Microsoft's marketing team published a press release recently saying Office 365 is about 80% cheaper compared to the open source office suite, OpenOffice - with the figures stemming from reports in Italy and the City Council of Pesaro. The Redmond giant claims that to roll out Open Office, Pesaro incurred a one off cost of about €300,000 and had lots of problems with document formatting. But equally how would you convince a public sector organisation to migrate to your cloud services instead of using 'expensive' open source software? The obvious way would be to present a case study from a similar organisation together with a well written report commissioned to an "independent" consultancy firm. At this point your future customer has all the data and justifications required to sign on the dotted line. And some journalists are now presenting this case as fact of Microsoft Office 365 being 80% more economical than open source alternatives. I would argue that this is an isolated case and the PR efforts by big technology vendors, like many other methods, are being used to trick private and public organisations into signing contracts based on data or claims that may be not completely true.
