#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.

#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

#linuxmint171   #cinnamon   #rebecca  review: Possibly the best release from mint stable till date providing impressive customization options and a superb polished interface which work flawlessly. I am very impressed. Except for a marginally higher boot time, rest is all good in the distro #ubuntu14_04   #linux  
In my last review, I discussed about Linux Mint 17.1 Mate. Today, it's turn of Linux Mint's flagship operating system Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon. The release notes states of the following improvements: "Linux Mint 17.1 is a lon...

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

#LinuxMint #KDE 17.1 Review: Simply superb with very low resource usage and high battery life. A lot of issues of the KDE 4.14 is gone like screenshot not working properly. Overall, the best KDE spin I used in quite sometime. #Linux   #linuxmint171   #ubuntu1404

#fedora21  review: with #gnome314  & #linux  kernel 3.17, If you can ignore initial hiccups, fantastic operating system. I tried out #wayland  display server as well - it has rough edges but works smoothly. #rhel   #redhatlinux

Heh indeed. In general you'll find Gnome 3 to be pretty keyboard friendly I'd say. :)
