Parsix 5.0 review

Up
vote
Down

Simple because I did not see any point in it. The distribution wasn’t bringing anything new to the table, and the custom-coded installer was several steps removed (in the wrong direction) from that of its parent distribution. But that was back in 2011, which for a distribution with a 6-month release cycle, is a long time. read more...

Can we all agree with the Linux Deepin way of innovation?

Up
vote
Down

The same principle, in my view, applies, or should apply, to Linux on the desktop. End-users first. Give users a distribution that just works, so that they can get stuff done without needing to learn how the system works. Of course, those who need to get digital grease on their hands have the option to do just that, if that’s what they want. read more...

The latter being the current active branch, with more features than the former. The 1.x branch does not get new features, only bugfixes. The other difference between the two branches is that the 1.x branch is compatible with Python 2.7, while the 2.x branch is compatible with Python 3.3. read more...

To outsiders like me, the announcement of the formation of Cyanogen, Inc. was a bit of a surprise. And the fact that the company succeeded in raising millions of venture capital (VC) funds was even more surprising. read more...

It is one of many Python applications that expert and aspiring data scientists may use to mess with data. Orange is cross-platform, but because there are no installation binaries for GNU/Linux distributions, installing it on your favorite distribution entails building it from source.

The rest of this article shows how to build and install it from the downloaded source code. read more...

The analysis also showed that HoT does not work as advertised, at least not yet. But the interesting part of the result of the analysis that peeked my interest concerns how HoT fared on Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 19, two distributions it was tested on. read more...

Plasma Media Center 1.1 and digiKam 3.3

Up
vote
Down

In terms of features, Plasma Media Center (PMC) is not yet at the level of XBMC, but it looks really nice and appears to have a lighter footprint than XBMC. The keyword here is “appears,” because when I checked the memory used for just running, without any activity, PMC uses almost twice as much memory as XBMC. read more...

Linpus Lite 1.9 review

Up
vote
Down

Linpus Lite is one of those distributions that I’ve always hoped will be done right, considering that it is published by a commercial entity. However, with every release, it manages to fail in taking care of the little things that matter. Almost every desktop distribution suffers from the same problem. They get the big picture, but then it comes to delivering sane and sensible defaults and implementing features that a modern OS should have, they miss the mark. read more...
