Do you believe that PC Linux OS improved?
I published an extremely short review of PC Linux OS not so long ago. It was short because I could not connect to my wireless network from the Live run of that Operating System. At the same time I mentioned that the most recent version of PCLOS was about 1.5 years old - too much even for the ...

+Alessandro Ebersol​​ - I'm really sad that I have to agree with you. I like PCLinuxOS very much, but development has virtually stopped, and it pains me to say that death is only a matter of time.

Is Manjaro any good?
There are several distributions in the Linux world that many users have heard of, but are scared to try. Examples? Slackware, Arch, Gentoo, maybe even Debian. They all have a geeky aura. They have a reputation of being less user-friendly. Too many people prefer to stick to Ubuntu, Mint, ...

put this on my new x131e lenovo, and I'm having a funky bug of the wifi falling asleep, when I haven't used the wifi for a few minutes. Other than that I couldn't be happier w/ Cinnamon!!! It's the best of Gnome's general simplicity & KDE's theming simplicity. It's the only Linux Distro. I've seen that has easily modified sound actions(open/close windows...etc.).

Have you ever tried Sabayon Linux?
Sabayon is a distribution not famous among the majority of Linux fans, although it still has a decent army of followers. It is in the Top 30 of distributions, according to Distrowatch. I have reviewed Sabayon several times some time ago. It was back in 2012 when I looked at version Sabayon 8.0.

Do you agree with the poll results?
Fedora 24 and Ubuntu 16.04 families are due to release within next month or so. Just about a month ago the Linux notes from DarkDuck blog started a poll where you could vote which of these two distributions you await more. It is time to give the results of that poll now.

Do you play Windows games on Linux?
Linux operating systems gives the stability that Windows platform somewhere fails to deliver. But what about gaming? Can we compare Windows and Linux on gaming front? I don't think it will be a fare game to compare both on this aspect. Users who want to go with gaming will rarely use Linux and ...

Any recommendations?
Hello to all my subscribers. Let me use this blog post for my personal rather than Linux-oriented need. I promise we will come back to Linux very soon. You may be aware that I run this blog along with some other sites, one of them being buylinuxcds.co.uk. That's why I need a hosting provider.
