clinuxOS, radically simple: Plug Play

,----[ Quote ]
| The article I am writing is about PCLinuxOS, but probably is not very
| different for other Linux distributions. A few weeks ago I installed
| PCLinuxOS for the first time and was impressed by the ease of stabilizing my
| internet connection and the speed of installation. Since that first day
| PCLinuxOS managed to surprise me several other times.

Seduced by Sidux

| Sidux may have successfully seduced me, but I have to wait and try the
| Distribution Release so that I can properly and fully express my desire for
| this fine distro.

| By the way, another improvement seen in sidux 2007-03 preview1 is the fonts
| used.
|
| The Bitstream Vera Sans 11 is definitely better! Just visit the
| Distrowatch with the Iceweasal browser.

Sidux 2007-02 - A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Simply put, Sidux 2007-02 was a pleasure to use. The live CD
| worked beautifully, as did the installer. The desktop is very
| dark, but this is nice to see after using so many ightdistributions.

| It's a rare distribution that impresses me before I've even tried it,
| but sidux did just that when, a few hours after I'd downloaded and
| burned a two-day-old preview release, the project announced that the
| next release was available for download.

Testdriving Sidux 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| Sidux ships with a 2.6.20 kernel, Xorg 7.1.1, gcc 4.1.2, and KDE
| 3.5.5. Iceweasel 2.0.0.1 appears to be the default browser and
| OpenOffice.org is only at version 2.0.4. Besides what appears to
| be most of the KDE apps, other apps include The Gimp, Amarok,
| K3B, Kaffine, Scribus, XFMedia player, and Inkscape. There are a
| few system configuration tools, but not a lot. Ksensors is
| available through apt-get.
