A week with Sabayon on the Macbook Pro

Filed under
Linux

Last week after being desperatly disappointed with the direction Apple are taking with OSX after using Mountain Lion for a ew hour i decided to go back to using Linux. However finding the right Linux distro was important, the Macbook Pro (MBP) is not a PC, yes it will run almost every Intel based linux distro there are a few hardware gotchas which make the choice of Distro important for the quickest out of the box up and working experience.

As the title suggests a platform i'm already enamoured with was my first choice, the Gentoo based source and binary distro Sabayon with its recently updated version 8.

Moving to Linux on a Macbook PRo

Filed under
Linux

the announcement of Mountain Lion is the Vista moment for Apple, it's that point when many Apple users will take time to step back and think about the Operating system on their Apple PC.

Windows 8 will be one option However Linux has become a very stable OS when done right on Apple hardware. However it takes a big step and a leap of faith to drop OSX..

What the difference a distro release makes..

Filed under
Linux

I'm a firm believer in Sabayon, i've been using it since the heady days of version 3 with the DVD ISO which contained nearly 4GB of both Gnome and KDE distros and an hours installation. This gave the user a bleeding edge distro which implemented Compiz first and better than anyone else as an example.however I have to say I'm just a little disappointed in this release with it's implementation of Gnome 3.

What does 2012 have in store for the Linux OS?

Filed under
Linux

2011 was a very interesting year for Linux, the Jewel in the crown Ubuntu got some very bad press mostly over Unity. KDE started to get its act together and took great strides to provide a usable GUI and the Gnome Team took minimalisation to a whole new level for GUI's with Gnome 3.

So what does 2012 have to offer for the Linux Community?

Ubuntu: Didier Roche's Interviews Series and Resurgence of Ubuntu Touch

  • Welcome To The (Ubuntu) Bionic Age: Behind communitheme: interviewing Aaron
    I’m Aaron Papin and I’m from Trinidad and Tobago. I work at an IT consultancy that specializes in open-source solutions for SMBs. I’m a technician, but I also work in designing and deploying websites and even on ads from time to time. It’s pretty freeform and fun. I knew of Linux for years, but I only dove in after a hard drive failure a couple years ago. Because why not at that point? It didn’t take me long to start using it mostly full time (games). Even though I’ve worked on my own themes in the past, I’m still pretty new to the Linux community. Hobby-wise, I really like TV, cooking, video games and keeping fit when I’m not on an “extended break”.
