First look at NimbleX 2010 (Beta)

,----[ Quote ]
| NimbleX NimbleX, based on Slackware Linux, 
| is a project which attempts to provide a 
| small, yet fully functional, desktop 
| operating system for people on the go. 
| Specifically, NimbleX provides a modern 
| KDE desktop on a live CD or Flash drive. 
| The project also provides a tool called 
| Custom NimbleX, which allows the user to 
| customize their ISO image prior to 
| downloading it. Before taking NimbleX for 
| a test drive, I had a chance to talk with 
| Bogdan Radulescu, creator of the 
| distribution.

| According to Nick Carr, marketing director 
| of Red Hat, Linux desktop has developed 
| very rapidly over the past few years. Even 
| from the technology viewpoint the Linux 
| desktop is well developed, feature rich 
| and mature. What adds to the merit is the 
| low cost, better security and 
| manageability. It's also well suited to a 
| wide range of customer deployments. Well, 
| coming to the Linux distributions for 
| Desktop computing, Red Hat's Fedora has 
| created significant impact, but its not 
| the only one in the market. Another 
| remarkable Linux distribution for the 
| desktop is on the rise, a completely free 
| distro Ubuntu. It has been widely 
| supported by online communities. While it 
| would be great to include several 
| distributions on this list, the reality is 
| we had to filter out the best Linux 
| distribution for desktop computing.  A 
| typical desktop Linux distribution 
| comprises a Linux kernel, GNU tools and 
| libraries, additional software, 
| documentation, a window system and window 
| manager. We delved into the Linux 
| distributions for desktop computing and 
| queued up a list of top 5 distros.

| After a couple of years of silence, a new
| version of NimbleX, a light-weight,
| Slackware-based Linux distribution is now
| available. Still in testing, the NimbleX
| 2010 Beta has been released to all eager
| users. You can take it for a spin to see how
| it handles or to see whatâs changed. The
| long wait may have been worth it, as NimbleX
| 2010 comes with a lot of changes and
| updates, completely overhauling the previous
| version.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
