Bought an #asuschromebook  ASUS C201 11.6 inches Inch Chromebook (Rockchip , 4 GB, 16GB SSD, Navy Blue). My first chromebook and after a full charge batteries lasted for over 9 hours, possibly due to the lightweight processor and optimized #chromeos  . It surprised me by it's instant boot up and shut down, amazing battery life, ability to handle day to day work, good trackpad and decent screen resolution. Enjoying the experience.

#ubuntu  15.04 #vividvervet  review: with Unity 7.3.2, solid, stable and easy to use. But doesn't have anything to warrant an upgrade from #ubuntu1404  . Performance is as good as any #gnome3   #linux  distro I have used in 2014-15. 
I guess this is my first review after a gap of a couple of months. Actually I was busy with interesting developments in my professional career and right now, more busy with packing my and my family's stuff. We are shifting ou...

Hi Miguel, thanks for asking. Actually I'm preparing to shift my base to Chicago in early June along with my family. Hence, busy with personal life. Will start reviewing exciting Linux distros again in June.

#netrunner  15 review: Based on #kubuntu   #utopicunicorn  , ships with #kde   #plasma5  & #linux-kernel  3.16. It has a whole lot of pre-configured packages that you really don't need to download anything else for regular users. The interface is really refined but I found the distro lagging a bit in resource usage and power consumption.
On 16th February 2015, Clemens Toennies has announced the release of Netrunner 15, a desktop Linux distribution based on Kubuntu 14.10 and featuring the new KDE Plasma 5.2.0 desktop: "We are proud to announce the official rel...

#korora  21 #cinnamon  review: refreshing distro with superb aesthetics and commendable performance. The apps are cutting edge and it also supports touch screen. I am now formally converted to #fedora  from #ubuntu  :)
Korora has always impressed me as an easy to use Fedora repackaged with all bells and whistles. Korora was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users, while still being useful for experts. The main goal of Korora...

#linuxlite  2.2 #beryl  review: Good functional #xubuntu1404  fork offering over 4 years of support & a host of  utility packages with very decent performance. Though the package selection is not exactly lightweight but I found Lite to offer comparable performance to Xubuntu. #linux   #ubuntu14_04  
On Dec 2, 2014, Jerry Bezencon has announced the release of Linux Lite 2.2, an updated build of the project's lightweight distribution based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and featuring the Xfce desktop: "Linux Lite 2.2 final is now ava...

Hi Jeff, one query about installing Bodhi Linux on Win8 machines. I am able to create Bodhi Linux live USB using Linux Mint Image Writer and install Bodhi on Win7 laptops. However, it didn't boot in Win8 machines. Mint Image Writer works fine with other Ubuntu/Fedora forks and very recently I installed Korora 21 on the Win8 laptop, with UEFI, I have. I tried Unetbootin, but no avail, it throws up error after boot splash. Am I missing something here? Please help.

Regards,
Arindam
