free-bees.co.uk: PC-BSD should make an interesting change for two main reasons. Firstly, it uses a BSD kernel, as opposed to the Linux kernel used in distributions such as Debian and Slackware. Secondly, its main method of installing new programs seems to be closer to that of Windows than apt. So, let's see if its claims of user friendliness are accurate.
Nosredna Ekim: I am a Kubuntu user since version 6.06. However, that hasn’t made me blindly consider (k)ubuntu to be the best linux distro; I am always open to newcomers. In recent days, PClinuxOS 2007.0 was released, and quickly hit the top of of the distrowatch charts. I decided to download it and give this relatively new distribution a text run on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop.
Linux.com: After several delays, Gentoo finally released version 2007.0, code-named Secret Sauce. Despite the extended period of development, the installable live CD and DVD versions didn't work as they should, thanks to obvious bugs with display drivers. That said, if you discount the live CD and DVD and install Gentoo the manual way it's popular for, the new version is smooth as ice.
Raiden's Realm: A lot of the greatest hype in the Linux world has been around Ubuntu and its derivatives, namely Kubuntu, Edubuntu and the like. However, there's yet another contender in the Linux world that has been making a lot of noise and is worth a good hard look. Enter PcLinuxOS.
itmanagement: Fedora 7 helps to convince me that the time when the major GNU/Linux distributions were distinctive is rapidly passing. These days, innovation seems centered on the desktop or the individual program. Major distributions have become so mature that their role is mostly integration, and they are starting to look increasingly the same.
tabletpcreview: The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a tiny little wonder. It's about the size of a smartphone or PDA, but it has a lot more functionality. It's not quite the same as a Tablet PC, but it's very similar to a slate Tablet since there is no keyboard.
FreeSoftware Mag: I picked up Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Second Edition with a sense of familiarity; I also had the pleasure of reviewing the First Edition and found the experience to be a gentle and very complete introduction to Ubuntu.
masuran.org: According to the Linux Mint homepage, Linux Mint's purpose is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution. In this review, I will take a look at Linux Mint 2.2 (codename Bianca) and see how the Linux Mint team delivers.
linuxondesktop: PCLinuxOS is one of the finest Desktop Linux Distribution i have tried in past few years, it integrates some of the wonderful features of Mandriva Linux and adds a power pack collection of software. I have been a passionate user of Ubuntu and i can safely say if i had to recommend a Linux distro to someone new at computers it wont be Ubuntu but PCLinuxOS.
Tryst with Linux: Never have I had such an incident free installation procedure before. Really! I’m not joking. There’s literally nothing much (in terms of problems) to report.
linux devcenter: The third release of Xubuntu, the variant of Ubuntu with the lightweight Xfce desktop, appeared last month. Feisty Fawn (version 7.04) uses the final gold code of Xfce 4.4.0 rather than the release candidates in Edgy Eft (version 6.10) and Dapper Drake (version 6.06). I had very positive experiences with both Edgy and Dapper so I had very high expectations for Xubuntu Feisty Fawn.
Software in Review: Ubuntu Linux continues to show steady improvement with version 7.04, but there's still room for improvement. Despite the handful of shortcomings in 7.04, this is the best release Ubuntu's yet had. If they didn't before, commercial GNU/Linux vendors should now feel quite threatened by Ubuntu Linux.
Techgage.com: It's hard to believe, but it's been just over two years since NeroLinux 2.0 was first released. At the time, it was a big step for Nero because the Linux market was already being hogged by k3b, X-CD-Roast and similar applications. The biggest kicker for consumers though, was the fact that in order to use the program, you had to purchase the full-blown edition for Windows which cost upwards of $80. So what is Nero trying to prove?
Seopher: I've lost count how many times I've been here; sitting infront of Kwrite as I review the latest and greatest release from the PCLinuxOS team: PCLOS2007. It's been a long time coming and I've been getting increasingly anxious to see how this highly anticipated release performs. Let's see shall we!
Linux.com: PCLinuxOS is a live CD distribution that enables users to test Linux without actually having to install it. The highly anticipated new version, PCLinuxOS 2007, was released on Monday. Its intuitive selection of software, high level of stability and functionality, and the quality of the graphics make this the distribution's best release ever.
Phoronix: It was exactly one month ago that NVIDIA had delivered the 100.14.03 display driver and today we are reporting on yet another new beta driver in the 100.14.xx series. This time around we have our hands on the NVIDIA 100.14.06 graphics driver, which offers improved notebook support and fixes a variety of minor bugs.
All about Linux: FreeBSD along with OpenBSD and NetBSD form the triumvirate of BSD operating systems. Traditionally these BSDs are server centric operating systems - ie. those which are tuned to be run on a server rather than to be used by the end user as a desktop. Still, with a bit of tweaking and configuration, all the three of them can be used as viable desktop operating systems.
Linux.com: VectorLinux has been one of my favorite projects since my first test of the distribution almost 18 months ago. I like VectorLinux because its roots are firmly planted in the stability and simplicity of Slackware, yet it comes with an extensive software base and lots of out-of-the-box great looks; in other words, a rock solid foundation with eye candy and useful functionality.
LinuxReviews: I thought i should do a review of quite possibly my FAVORITE linux distro, Debian…note this might be a little bit biased, here we go:
performance pc: A weakness in multimedia production (or at least the perception of) has long been the Achilles’ heel of Linux. Yes, major Hollywood productions use Linux and there are a smattering of graphics and audio programs, but there has never been a comprehensive and cohesive collection of media creation tools for the average user—until now.
