Elive 0.3 review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 06 2005 @ 06:03 AM EDT

Flavio takes a look at the new Enlightenment desktop, complete with screenshots.

When Rasterman (Carsten Haitzler) and Mandrake (Geoff Harrison) started the Enlightenment project almost 10 years ago, the eye candy intensive desktop manager was barely able to run by the hardware standards of that time. KDE and Gnome were in their infancy, and FVWM was the window manager of choice for a big percentage of Linux users.

OPEN SUSE... Third Beta Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 06 2005 @ 05:53 AM EDT
Contributed by: glosser

GeekTimeLinux reviews the latest beta release of SUSE.

I must admit, when SUSE announced their OPEN SUSE Project, I was at the head of the list of skeptics. I had a major article written about how SUSE was going to follow Red Hat down the primrose path and we would have another fiasco. (OK, so Fedora isn't a complete fiasco as long as they keep putting out updates to correct the last update!)

Mad Penguin interviews the creator of the MEPIS distro, Warren Woodford.

I remember when I first heard about MEPIS. It seems as if I blinked, and all of a sudden everyone was talking about it. It's still less than two years old, and even MEPIS founder Warren Woodford says in this interview that he is surprised by the astronomic popularity of MEPIS.

A distro enlightened: VectorLinux 5.1 Deluxe Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 27 2005 @ 12:58 AM EDT
Contributed by: glosser

Mad Penguin reviews VectorLinux 5.1.

It seems like only yesterday when I first found VectorLinux on the pages of DistroWatch. Mad Penguin was still in its infancy and we were looking for software to write about. VectorLinux was an attractive package at the time since it was then becoming a reality that desktop Linux distributions were getting fatter and fatter to keep up with consumer demand and enthusiastic development. As we've seen in the Windows world, there is a price to pay for bloat, and it's measured in increments of PC performance. We're still seeing that today, but as many of you recall, it wasn't long ago when you could brag about how this or that distro outperformed Windows requiring far less resources.
