ConnochaetOS Makes Slackware Truly Free and a Bit Easier

Filed under

Slack

Of course, Linux is open source. Most people mistakenly equate open source with "free," as in pay nothing. Experienced Linux users know, however, that the open source concept separates the price of the software from the cost of obtaining enterprise-level modifications and support.

"Fully free" means, that ConnochaetOS does only contain free software and no proprietary, non-free software, blobs or firmware. Non-free parts of the upstream distros were removed and - where possible - replaced by free counterparts. ConnochaetOS retains full backwards compatibility with Slackware and Salix OS.
You can download the ConnochaetOS 14.1 ISO image from Sourceforge

Linux
Slack

Seven years ago this operating system was among the top ten listed on DistroWatch; these days Zenwalk is relatively obscure at 113th place. So not many people noticed when, earlier this year, a new version came out – a prelude to the upcoming 8.0 release. The result is a lightweight Linux setup, compatible with SlackWare packages, that’s fast to set up and comes with a complete suite of software for everyday use.

Salix Live 14.1 Is a Light Slackware-Based OS with a Windows Vibe

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Slack

The Live version of Salix has been in the works for quite some time and the developers have made a lot of changes and improvements since the previous release in the series. In fact, the Live editions for the Salix flavors have been largely ignored in the past couple of years, but that is changing with this release.

Salix is one of the few Linux distributions still maintained that is using Slackware as the base. Many of the older, similar distros have gone away completely and others have changed their base. The Linux ecosystem is all about diversity, so it's a good thing that some developers are still trying to keep the Slackware dream alive.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
