Ubuntu Feisty Fawn: Desktop Linux Matured Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 18 2007 @ 01:30 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

Fedora v. Ubuntu: A Performance Look Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 13 2007 @ 02:02 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

We have compared the 32-bit and 64-bit performance of Ubuntu and started a performance comparison of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, but how does the performance of the upcoming Feisty Fawn release compare to that of Fedora 7? In this article we have enclosed benchmarks from Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5. In gaming and desktop benchmarks, which of these Linux distributions is faster? We hope to answer that question today.

Wil Wheaton's Geek in Review: Rockin' the Linuxburbs Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 04 2007 @ 04:13 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

When I first tried Linux around 1995, it was nearly as user-unfriendly as Windows ME. The fonts were ugly, connecting to the Internet -- at a blazing 56k, no less -- was one success easier than unassisted brain surgery, and getting printers and other peripherals to run was about as easy as getting Corey Feldman away from a flock of paparazzi.

Recent GNOME panel apps Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 25 2007 @ 09:58 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

The basic set of GNOME panel apps ranges from the practical, such as clocks and system monitors, to the mildly amusing, but apparently too traditional to dispense with, such as Fish. However, in the last few years, an increasing number of GNOME applications are being designed to fit into the panel. Since many of these recent apps are interesting but too minor to rate a full-length review, here's a roundup of some that have caught my attention.

Linux 2.6.20-rc6 Kernel Performance Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 31 2007 @ 01:21 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

With this being our first kernel performance comparison, it is also our "guinea pig" article as we finalize our selection of benchmarks to use, what exactly we will be focusing on in these articles, and other areas for coverage. With that said we have used the Linux 2.6.20-rc6 kernel as the primary focus of today's testing, which should be the last release candidate until the final 2.6.20 release.

Neuros OSD Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, December 21 2006 @ 01:38 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

The Neuros OSD promises a lot - it claims to be the first open source Linux-based embedded media center and it "records video and links your PC, portables and entertainment center". Bold claims, but can it live up to them?

Pepper Pad offers Linux-based Web tablet for sofa surfing Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

It seems like a great idea: making a computer that's somewhere between the size of a cell phone and a laptop, for people to carry around and surf the Web.

Damn Small Linux 3 operating system Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, October 20 2006 @ 03:11 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

An oft-quoted advantage of Linux is that is has far lower system requirements than Windows. But this is often spoilt by the larger distributions with 3D interfaces and thousands of packages.
