Vine Linux 5.1 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Vine Linux Vine Linux is a Japanese, RPM-based,
| multi-purpose distribution. It is developed and
| maintained by Vinecaves, and it based on an
| earlier version of Fedora. It is one of those
| distributions that excludes non-free
| (proprietary) applications from its default
| installation. Unlike similar distributions,
| however, it has developed a smart method to
| make installing non-free applications very
| easy. This is a review of version 5.1, which
| was released last week. This also marks the
| first listing of Vine Linux on this site.


Why Red Hat Surfaced at SAP Partner Summit

,----[ Quote ]
| When the SAP Partner Summit started
| yesterday, Red Hat had a prime sponsorship
| position at the welcome reception. Read
| between the lines, and a quiet battle is
| brewing between Red Hat and Novell; the two
| leaning Linux service distribution providers
| are battling for the love and affection of
| SAP. Here why.

| Product: Vine Linux 5.0
| Web Site: Vine Linux (Via Google Translator)
| Price: Free
| Pros: Let you choose from a range of install options and lets you customize
| your software choices.
| Cons: Default language is Japanese so the initial install screen might throw
| people. Doesn come with any office suites or significant office apps
| available during the install. Youl need to download them via Synaptic after
| you install Vine Linux.
| Suitable For: Particularly great if you need a Japanese Linux environment.
| Can also be used by pretty much any other group of Linux users. Just be
| mindful that youl need to change the default language to English during the
| install.
| Summary: Vine Linux provides Japanese (and English) users with a good
| desktop Linux experience. Installation is easy and can be customized. Vine
| Linux also provides a good range of Linux apps (with the exception of office
| apps).
| Rating: 3.5/5

| Start by adding panels to your page. Then drop your favorite pictures onto
| the panels. Add a few Speech Bubbles, and boom. You've got your very own
| comic. And it was all "Drag and Drop".
