Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu First Impressions Carla Schroder Thursday, July 3, 2008 12:00:03 PM Sidux is a new Debian derivative that's still just a baby, born in January 2007. Sidux announced a brand-new release on June 26, Sidux 2008-02, so we're going to kick the tires and take it for a drive, and see what sets it apart from other children of Debian. Currently it offers a choice of the KDE or Fluxbox desktop, and it supports both 32-bit i686 and AMD64. There is also an XFCE variant. Before trying it out for yourself, be sure to read the Quick Start section in the excellent and exceptionally helpful Sidux manual before burning it to a CD.

ASUS Eee PC 901 Linux Edition Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 25 2008 @ 01:56 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

If the ASUS Eee 900 basically amounted to a larger-screened version of the 7-inch original, then the Eee 901 marks its graduation into a distinct model. Packing Intel’s latest 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, in place of the 900’s Celeron 900MHz, ASUS could reasonably have left the rest of the notebook the same and simply added a little to the price. Thankfully they’ve subjected the 901 to a mild degree of fettling, tweaking case and controls and making for a markedly more attractive proposition. ASUS sent over the Windows version of the 901; check out what exactly impressed us after the cut.

OpenLX and KalCulate pair Linux distro with proprietary accounting app Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 24 2008 @ 01:51 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Most free-libre accounting applications that ship with GNU/Linux distributions are for personal accounting only: they manage one person's finances.

VMware Fusion 1.1 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, June 01 2008 @ 10:57 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Until now, if you wanted to run an occasional Windows application on a Mac, you had to install Apple’s very own Boot Camp and select which OS you wanted to boot into after you powered on. But VMware changes all of that with the VMware Fusion, an application that lets you run Windows (or Linux for that matter) within the OS X environment on any Intel-based Mac.

Linux examined: Fedora 9 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 15 2008 @ 02:35 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

For many of us, our first painful introduction to old-school Linux installs came from installing early versions of Red Hat. Like most early Linux installs, it was a highly technical, highly finicky process that was best left to the experts.
