Vine Linux 5.1 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Vine Linux Vine Linux is a Japanese, RPM-based, 
| multi-purpose distribution. It is developed and 
| maintained by Vinecaves, and itâs based on an 
| earlier version of Fedora. It is one of those 
| distributions that excludes non-free 
| (proprietary) applications from its default 
| installation. Unlike similar distributions, 
| however, it has developed a smart method to 
| make installing non-free applications very 
| easy. This is a review of version 5.1, which 
| was released last week. This also marks the 
| first listing of Vine Linux on this site.


Why Red Hat Surfaced at SAP Partner Summit

,----[ Quote ]
| When the SAP Partner Summit started 
| yesterday, Red Hat had a prime sponsorship 
| position at the welcome reception. Read 
| between the lines, and a quiet battle is 
| brewing between Red Hat and Novell; the two 
| leaning Linux service distribution providers 
| are battling for the love and affection of 
| SAP. Hereâs why.



Line Linux 5

| Product:      Vine Linux 5.0
| Web Site:     Vine Linux (Via Google Translator)
| Price:        Free
| Pros:         Let you choose from a range of install options and lets you customize
| your software choices.
| Cons:         Default language is Japanese so the initial install screen might throw
| people. Doesnât come with any office suites or significant office apps
| available during the install. Youâll need to download them via Synaptic after
| you install Vine Linux.
| Suitable For:         Particularly great if you need a Japanese Linux environment.
| Can also be used by pretty much any other group of Linux users. Just be
| mindful that youâll need to change the default language to English during the
| install.
| Summary:      Vine Linux provides Japanese (and English) users with a good
| desktop Linux experience. Installation is easy and can be customized. Vine
| Linux also provides a good range of Linux apps (with the exception of office
| apps).
| Rating:       3.5/5

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
