[News] Comparison of Desktop GNU/Linux Distributions, Review of Pardus 2009.2

Hash: SHA1

Comparison: Best 2010 Linux desktop for begginers 

,----[ Quote ]
| There you have it, a close comparison between 
| these three fabulous Linux distros, resulting 
| in very evenly matched scores. I personally 
| love all three, each having its own character, 
| strengths, but also weaknesses. Having said 
| so, looking strictly for which one offers the 
| smoothest and most intuitive experience, I 
| would probably have to say that Linux Mint 9 
| is the winner in my opinion.
| Hopefully this comparison will help you make 
| your choice based on your own needs and taste. 
| I am pretty sure any of the choices is a sure 
| winner.


Pardus 2009.2 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Recommendations – Pardus 2009.2 is a light-
| weight desktop distribution. Light-weight 
| because it does not support disk encryption, 
| boot-loader password protection, and LVM and 
| RAID. If those are features you can live 
| without, then Pardus is worth at least a try. 
| It is just like Linux Mint, but with fewer 
| applications in its repository.
| What I’m looking forward to in the next 
| release is for the network interface and the 
| graphical firewall manager to be configured 
| out of the box. I’ll also love to see 3D 
| desktop configuration as a step in Kaptan. 



Final Review: Pardus 2009.2

,----[ Quote ]
| When I found about Pardus some weeks ago, I
| was surprised to find a distro which is not
| among the most popular ones, but an
| impressive piece of work nevertheless. I
| personally believe the Pardus developers have
| a very good understanding of their users
| needs, specially those users who may not have
| any experience in Linux or KDE. I think they
| have done a superb job at removing
| "obstacles" where it matters, joining other
| great distributions like PCLinuxOS 2010 or
| Linux Mint 9 in making the Linux desktop more
| accessible than ever.


Pardus 2009.2 Geronticus eremita

,----[ Quote ]
| The new updated version of Pardus 2009,
| Pardus 2009.2 Geronticus eremita announced
| with the new technologic features.
| Updates in Pardus Technologies
| Core Pardus technologies are updated to new
| versions, including many bugfixes,
| optimizations and new features.
| Pardus manager family has been refactored and
| optimized for new KDE 4.4 / Qt 4.6
| environments. Pardus KDE tools, Network
| Plasmoid for easy network profile switching
| and Service Plasmoid for easy service
| management are available in our repositories.
| These plasmoids can be placed either on the
| desktop, or any of the panels on the desktop
| for easier access.


Pardus Linux 2009.2 Has KDE SC 4.4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| The Pardus development team released a few
| minutes ago the new Pardus 2009.2 Linux-based
| operating system. Powered by the Linux kernel
| and built on top of the newly
| released KDE Software Compilation 4.4.4
| environment, Pardus 2009.2 (codename
| Geronticus eremita) comes with an amazing
| installer and bleeding-edge applications such
| as the OpenOffice.org office suite,
| the Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 web browser or The
| GIMP 2.6.8 image editor.


Preview: Pardus 2009.2 Release Candidate

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of Linux Pardus 2009.2 is near so
| I wanted to give the Beta a run and see
| what's new before I actually get my hands on
| the final release a few days/weeks from now.
| Unfortunately, the link to the beta from
| DISTROWATCH was broken. In all fairness, that
| link is broken on the Pardus official WEBSITE
| as well. I kept looking and was lucky enough
| to find a link to the Release Candidate,
| which actually makes more sense for a fair
| preview article. In fact, this RC is so
| complete that this almost feels like a
| review!
| [...]
| Some time ago I compared Ubuntu 10.04 and
| Windows 7. Back then I stated that Windows 7
| made things very simple at the expense of
| diversity and choice. In other words,
| everything was intuitive because options were
| very limited and mostly predefined by
| developers. I was essentially justifying that
| Ubuntu's arguably more complicated interface
| was the result of its great flexibility and
| freedom. PCLinuxOS 2010, Linux Mint 9 and
| specially Pardus 2009.2 have demonstrated
| that a much better job can be done in making
| the Linux desktop accessible to anyone
| without compromising its power.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Complete and Utter (Linux Desktop) Apps ,----[ Quote ] | What interests me about these completist apps | is that they are commonplace in FOSS and rare | in proprietary software. The reason is probably | that FOSS has more demanding and independent- | minded users, many of whom are also developers | and in a position to insist on their own | preferences `---- http://itmanagement.earthweb.com/osrc/article.php/3845641/Complete-and-Utter-Linux-Desktop-Apps.htm Hybrid IPsec / SSL VPN Gateway for Linux Operating Systems ,----[ Quote ] | NCP engineering GmbH today announced the | availability of software-based NCP Secure | Enterprise Server for Linux operating systems. `---- http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Ncp-Engineering-1066058.html Recent: Marble is a polished jewel ,----[ Quote ] | Marble is a spectacular piece of software. It is beautiful, thorough, | detailed, well laid out, fast, robust, and responsive. And you can enjoy it | without any needs for a powerful graphics card. It runs well on modest | hardware, which only makes it even more wondrous. | | For people who like geography, Marble is a great bonus. It also seems like an | excellent tool for teaching people (and kids) the wonders of our Planet in a | fun and exciting way. I wish I had something like this when I was growing up! | | Marble is simply great. You have to try it! `---- http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/marble.htm -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATUR...

[News] Review of Miniature GNU/Linux Server (OpenBlock), More GNU/Linux Servers
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 [Review] OpenBlock S600, a powerful server in the palm of your hand ,----[ Quote ] | Entirely made in Japan, the OpenBlockS600 | may not feature the most exciting design | ever made to mankind, but who would argue | that design for this kind of a product is | important? After all, what we want and | need here is something extremely reliable, | easy to handle and rock solid… And believe | me, the OpenBlockS600 is ALL of those in | one tiny white aluminum box. `---- http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/news-19608-%5BReview%5D+OpenBlock+S600,+a+powerful+server+in+the+palm+of+your+hand.html InfoWorld review: Desktop virtualization for Windows and Linux heats up ,----[ Quote ] | Desktop virtualization is one of those | technologies that confound the experts. | Just when you think you've got it figured | out, along comes some interloping | development to upset the apple cart. Most | recently, that role has fallen to Sun's | VirtualBox, the plucky open source VM | solution that's quickly gobbling up the | general-purpose desktop virtualization | space left vacant by Microsoft and VMware. | Users from the three major platforms -- | Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux -- are | flocking to VirtualBox for its | scalability, robust networking, and | bargain price point (it's free). `---- http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9142358/InfoWorld_review_Desktop_virtualization_for_Windows_and_Linux_heats_up Storag...

Linux Mint: Taking Ubuntu to the Next Level ,----[ Quote ] | Overall Linux Mint is a fine distribution and I can proudly say | I will be using it as my desktop OS.

[News] GNU/Linux Desktop for Senior People Has Competition: *Another* GNU/Linux Business
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 PCs for technophobes go head-to-head ,----[ Quote ] | New Alex laptop takes on Valerie Singleton's | SimplicITy range | | A UK vendor has launched a new specialised | notebook aimed at technophobes and computer | novices, adding to what is rapidly becoming a | mini-sector of ‘idiot-proof’ PCs. | | [...] | | “We are competing with SimplicITy to an | extent, but what you get from us is support,” | Holmes told PCR. “Where SimplicITy has taken | a flavour of Linux and offered you four big | buttons to click, I think it just leaves you | there. What we’re saying is this is a | subscription – you pay by the month so we | will be with you every step of the way.” | | As Holmes suggests, this service comes at a | cost. On top of the £400 price tag for the | 15.4-inch laptop (soon to be upgraded to | 15.6-inch), users must pay a monthly fee of | £9.99, or £24.99 if they want broadband too. `---- http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/33252/PCs-for-technophobes-go-head-to-head Recent: SimplicITy – Linux for everyone! ,----[ Quote ] | SimplicITy is offered in two different | suites (£435.99 & £525.99 respectively), | but what you have to consider is this is for | a complete solution (no pondering over which | version is most suitable). A new user | buying a Windows PC for example is probably | going to be presented with choices to make | that they are relying on the salesperson to | know wh...

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Deluge – An Awesome But Unappreciated Cross-Platform BitTorrent Client ,----[ Quote ] | By now, most MakeUseOf readers should know | all about BitTorrent, the most popular peer- | to-peer technology on the web. We’ve talked | about the protocol more than once, and even | released the Big Book of Bittorrent—a great | place to start if you find bittorrent too | confusing for your use. | | There are thousands of BitTorrent clients on | the market; that is, thousands of | applications you can use to download files | using BitTorrent technology. If you’re | curious which BitTorrent program is the | best, everyone has their own favorite – but | today, we’re going to profile what I believe | is an underappreciated piece of software: | Deluge. `---- http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/deluge-awesome-unappreciated-crossplatform-bittorrent-client/ (+) Best of Both Worlds: Windows Genealogy Programs on Linux ,----[ Quote ] | Luckily, most any of today's Linux | workstation products can run most any | Windows program, including all the common | genealogy programs (The Master Genealogist, | Legacy Family Tree, Ancestral Quest, Family | Tree Maker, etc.).
