Best Linux Distributions of the Decade (2000-2009)

,----[ Quote ]
| We've seen plenty of "Best of the Decade" 
| lists around, but not one is related to 
| Linux distribution. So it's only fitting 
| that we will give credit to the best Linux 
| distros that dominated the last decade 
| (2000-2009), or most part of it.


Kolibri: 1.44Mb of cute

| How KolibriOS squeezes all that into 1.44Mb 
| is beyond mortal comprehension. And itâs 
| not just that thereâs a blinking cursor 
| attached to a terminal somewhere, but an 
| entire graphical system, complete with 
| notepads, system monitors, games, utilities 
| and more nifty doodads than you can shake a 
| stick at. The mind boggles.


Msec updates getting (mostly) ready for [Mandriva] 2010.1

,----[ Quote ]
| It has been quite some time since I last 
| posted here about msec. For the past few 
| weeks, it received some attention and now I 
| guess many of the features I wanted to push 
| for Mandriva 2010.1 are implemented. So 
| Iâll describe the most interesting ones in 
| this blog post (and save some for later :) 



Group test: netbook distros

,----[ Quote ]
| Our choice: EeeXubuntu
| [...]
| Pupeee very nearly beat it to the top spot: itâs a great, small distro, with
| a lot packed into it. Unfortunately, the WEP problems meant that it just
| slipped below EeeXubuntu in the practical usability stakes. It also lacks the
| range of software that EeeXubuntu has available, even if it can cover the
| basics well. Itâs worth noting that Pupeee can easily be run from a Live USB
| key so you could combine the advantages of both distros; all you need to do
| is mount your regular home directory after youâve booted and saved files
| there. Thereâs scope for saving data between sessions in a special Pupeee
| file and it will automatically pick this file up again the next time you
| boot.
| Meanwhile, gOS has far and away the best eye candy of the distros tested
| here, and the online integration is great if youâre certain that youâre going
| to have decent network access. It is, however, a little slow and would need
| streamlining before weâd use it regularly.
| Finally, the lack of current packages for Xandros and its dependency on an
| irritating filesystem setup make it the clear loser of the four, although it
| does have an initial functionality edge over EeeXubuntu and gOS.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
