[News] Short Review of CentOS 5.2, GoblinX Gets New Web Site

Hash: SHA1

Review: CentOS 5.2

,----[ Quote ]
| As I’ve mentioned throughout the article, I am very familiar with Fedora and 
| I would say CentOS compares pretty well with Fedora.  I know I’ve only used 
| it briefly, but I think I can recommend it for anyone who wants to have Red 
| Hat technology, but thinks that Fedora moves too quickly and can’t afford 
| RHEL.    


Welcome to the New GoblinX Website

,----[ Quote ]
| The GoblinX Project has a new website. We choose Wordpress as the new content 
| management system and used the last weeks to upgrade the old site. The 
| english website is fully upgraded and the next step will be prepare the 
| portuguese pages.   



GoblinX packs a lot into compact Slackware-based distro

,----[ Quote ]
| GoblinX, an installable live CD based on the solid foundation of Slackware
| Linux, released Standard edition version 2.6 last month. It comes with lots
| of handy applications and five desktop managers: KDE, Fluxbox, Xfce,
| Enlightenment, and WindowMaker. I was impressed with the amount of software
| included as well as the stability and performance of GoblinX 2.6.    


CentOS 5.2: Send in the Clones

,----[ Quote ]
| If I were in the mood to use an RPM-based distribution, CentOS would be my
| first and probably only choice. It's not as pretty as openSuSE or even its
| cousin Fedora, but it's more stable than both on my setup. Stability wins out
| over eye-candy any day.
| CentOS is one of the few distributions that (perhaps due to its emphasis on
| small, incremental changes) manages to pull consistently high marks even from
| me. This release is no exception.


CentOS 5.2 released

,----[ Quote ]
| After the usual few weeks delay following the release of Red Hat Enterprise
| 5.2, the CentOS project has released its Red Hat clone – CentOS version 5.2.  



Review: GoblinX 2.6

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, you should give GoblinX a chance, but not because it's so
| small (300 MB) or because it so good looking and fast, and not because it has
| so many window managers, but because all the beautiful wallpapers and the
| magical applications I've mentioned in this review are created by a single
| person, Flavio de Oliveira! Thank you Flavio for such a glamorous distro (and
| for those amazing wallpapers)!


GoblinX, a Beautiful Brazilian Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| GoblinX is a Slackware-based Linux distribution directed towards desktop
| users and features a highly customized desktop. Acccording to Distrowatch,
| the primary goal of GoblinX is to create a more pleasant and functional
| desktop, standardizing all icons and themes to make it easy for novice users
| to learn about available applications. GoblinX is currently offered in 4
| flavors: The GoblinX Premium - the most complete...


First Look at GoblinX 2.6 Mini

,----[ Quote ]
| GoblinX is a distribution that dares to be different and unique. While mostly
| every time, unique doesn’t equals good, this is not one of these times. It
| might be a little difficult to get used to this distribution but it surely
| worths it. At least giving it a try. Enjoy!


ReviewLinux.Com: First Look GoblinX Micro 2.6

,----[ Quote ]
| I am looking at a micro Linux distribution today called GoblinX 2.6. This
| distribution is a Live CD that loaded fast and was very stable. Hope you
| enjoy the movie.


Review: GoblinX 2.0

,----[ Quote ]
| I felt that GoblinX is a pretty decent distribution. They definitely
| went all out to create their own look and feel and they did a good
| job of doing this. Other than K3b not working, the system appeared
| to work just fine for me. It gives you a variety of applications
| to use as well as giving your system a unique look and feel. The
| effort put in to getting the applications themed together similarly
| is commendable. It helps solidify the system?s look and feel and
| gives it a polished look.


Released GoblinX Premium 2007.1

,----[ Quote ]
| The GoblinX Premium 2007.1 is released.
| The special edition created to be the main operating system of
| the goblin fan, our O.S. Replacement, starts the second
| generation of the distribution, full of news, special
| features and upgrades.


GoblinX Premium 2007.1

,----[ Quote ]
| GoblinX is a truly unique looking Linux experience. Even today with
| all the themes and 3D effects, many distros look so similar as to
| sometimes make distinction difficult. This won't be a problem with
| GoblinX. It can't be confused with any other.

,----[ Quote ]
| All new features and upgrades prepared for the Premium edition are
| included, including a new functional Magic Center which works with
| Xfce and all graphical user interfaces. In comparison with Premium
| released in the end of last month, this edition adds 'probesata'
| cheatcode and SATA modules support to initrd and also corrects a
| small error in the GoblinX installer


Slack Off: GoblinX vs. Zenwalk

,----[ Quote ]
| The older and more experienced Zenwalk Linux won, but by just a slim margin.
| Its stability and added features were just too much for the young GoblinX to
| take. Nonetheless, GoblinX didn’t just easily go down because it fought until
| the end. I think it has a huge potential to succeed, and perhaps, could
| someday become a distro to be reckoned with.
| A well-deserved win by Zenwalk in my own view, but as always, I want more
| opinions from our dear readers.


Centos 5.1 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System. As a group, CentOS
| is a community of open source contributors and users. Typical CentOS users
| are organizations and individuals that do not need strong commercial support
| in order to achieve successful operation. CentOS is 100% compatible rebuild
| of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux, in full compliance with Red Hat's
| redistribution requirements. CentOS is for people who need an enterprise
| class operating system stability without the cost of certification and
| support. CentOS is currently ranked #12 at distrowatch      


CentOS 5 as a Desktop System

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS 5 is a stable system which can be user either as a server OS or
| as a desktop system for a normal user. The latter requires a few
| modifications in the default installation (like the performance
| fixes mentioned in the article), but after the tweaking is done,
| it works great and is worth recommending.


Dollars and CentOS 4.5: Updating Up2date

,----[ Quote ]
| I continue to be impressed with the way CentOS/Red Hat is laid out. There are
| tons of management tools, and mousing over just about anything on the screen
| causes small "help" boxes to open up. Nice touch.  


Is CentOS 5.0 Worth Every Penny?

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS is a Linux distribution based on the ever reliable Red Hat Enterprise
| Linux (RHEL). The name stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System and
| is not related to a coin.

Review: CentOS 5

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS 5.0 gets high marks from me for a lot of what they do, but looses a
| few points for some of the things they either forgot to do, or chose not to
| do. For business use, it’s a well rounded Linux distribution that’s ready for
| the desktop for certain. But for the portable user and the home user, I feel
| that it needs to grow a bit more before it will find its way onto my
| shortlist of recommended Linux distributions. With what I’ve seen, I’d really
| love for it to reach that level at some point, but for now it’s not. But I
| must say, the developers have done well and I look forward to future versions
| and all the great new things that they will be bringing about in the years to
| come!        


A First Look At CentOS 5

,----[ Quote ]
| After what has become a few weeks with it, I believe CentOS 5 is a
| worthy successor to previous versions.  If you're in the market for
| an easy to use Linux operating system, you will find me suggesting it.


CentOS The Red Hat Clone  

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of the free, community-based CentOS 5 Enterprise Linux so
| soon after the RHEL 5 release is hardly a surprise; the same thing
| happened with RHEL 4 two years ago. Nor does Red Hat consider CentOS
| a competitor, but rather a distribution that fills a need. The
| company also said CentOS will help it grow its business.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
