Korora's use-it-out-of-the-box philosophy is one of the reasons the distro keeps getting better. If you want a better, more user-friendly Linux distro that reaches beyond Fedora's enterprise appeal, you can't go wrong with any of Korora's five desktop versions. It leaves little for users to desire and makes choosing another distro unnecessary to get your preferred interface.
Korora stays true to its mission. It promised an easier Linux for new users without sacrificing either power or features for seasoned Linuxers.
That's enough for the first evening with the new Raspberry Pi 3. The verdict, so far, is very positive. It's fast, it has added a couple of important new features, the most important of which is built-in WiFi, and it is still compatible with the previous Raspberry Pi models. What more could you ask for?
After 10 years of development was released the new major release of ReactOS, this event was highlighted in the most biggest tech resources. But I’m not interested in just talk about release notes from “crazy Russian developers”, more interested is technical opportunities and possibilities.
Which architecture use React OS now, which hardware are supported, why users and developers might find it interesting, the degree of compatibility with Microsoft Windows? Is there a Windows-based copy with Unix-style? For these and other questions you can find the answers in this article (or ask new questions in comments).
I'm impressed. Not like shiver me timbers, I'm dancing naked in front of a mirror while Manhunter plays in the background, but still quite amazed by what MX-15 offers. On the negative side, we have some visual inconsistencies, a geeky and slightly dangerous installer, a system area that needs shaping up, Fn buttons and volume (ground) control, and a few other space oddities.
Then, on the bright side, super fast, super lean, works great on modern hardware without hiccups or whining, excellent media and smartphone support, awesome battery life, a good collection of programs and wicked tools, and still more. Well, you know, you've just read the review, haven't you, you impatient conclusion-only pervs. Anyhow, really neat. MX Linux has come a long, long way since its early days. It is shaping up to be a really nice distribution, and my biggest fear at this point is that it will die, like so many other distros have died before reaching that critical mass moment.
To sum it up, if you're looking for something different, something less avant-garde, whatever that means, or rather, you're fed up with the love triangle of Ubuntu, SUSE and Fedora plus derivatives, then MX-15 might be what you want. Somewhat of an underdog, and a bit scruffy and mongrely at times, but I like the progress. I like the consistent approach. It's a key to greatness. 9/10. It sure has joined my watch shortlist. Worth testing and whatnot. But my fear of the future always remains, please prove me wrong. However, the present is happy, so start downloading and burning them coasters. Dedoimedo out.
While the cross platform aspect is nice, Windows and Mac OS both already have very capable, free video editors. The real winners here are Linux users who now have an editor that's on par with Apple's iMovie (even more powerful than recent versions of iMovie) and bears considerable resemblance to the industry-standard Final Cut Pro.
As I noted in my review of video editors for Linux, OpenShot was once the go-to standard for video editing on GNOME-based distros. And now with 2.0, OpenShot is back and better than ever.
RebeccaBlackOS offers an interesting window into where the Linux desktop might be headed. The developers behind the scenes working on Wayland seem to be making far better progress than the developers working on the Wayland fork Mir. Ubuntu designers have not yet been able to get Mir working with any desktop environment. The last few Ubuntu releases have bypassed the planned Mir debute.
RBOS gives you enough stability to play around with a variety of user interfaces. It's encouraging that KDE and Gnome 3 shells work so well already on Wayland. The Enlightenment desktop is one of the newest innovations available on several Linux distros, so it should continue to attract interest running so well on Wayland.
