Fedora 18 beta has finally been released, after much delay. If you’re a follower of the Red Hat world, then you know Fedora 18 is likely going to serve as part of the upstream base for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, which is reportedly supposed to be released in beta form sometime next year. Also, I feel Fedora is now really offering a great user experience and deserves to be explored as a primary desktop distro. (more…)
Well, I had been putting it off for some time, but I finally installed Debian testing, aka “Wheezy.”
There are rumors on the internet about this shipping with Xfce to fit on a single CD, however I downloaded and installed the latest weekly build, and it indeed came with Gnome 3. In my case, I installed the OS into Virtual Box. Gnome 3 failed to launch, and I only had the fail safe mode. On Fedora 17, I get the full Gnome 3 desktop with the same settings in Virtual Box, which leads me to believe Fedora might be using a newer package or better VM video drivers.
I think Gnome 3 is a step in the wrong direction for Linux, and I’ll be majorly happy if Debian indeed switches to Xfce for desktop use.
As far as the installation of the OS goes, it’s pretty straight forward, much the same as Squeeze. A few minor changes, and a very ugly pink loading bar. It’s not ugly strictly because it’s pink, just that it doesn’t fit with the other colors of the screen. I know this is fickle, but just my opinion
Anyway, if you actually read this and found it helpful, I’m glad
It’s 2012. Linux will be turning 21 this fall! It’s hard to imagine computing life before Linux in comparison to the modern age. GNU/Linux has revolutionized our entire society; countless devices run on Linux. In fact, I’m writing this post from a Linux distro installed on my laptop, and the server this site is hosted on runs Linux. I’m fortunate enough to have a great career; at work I get to play with Linux all day long!
