Aurora is the new face (and name) of Eeebuntu netbook OS

,----[ Quote ]
| EeeBuntu Linux has been one of the most 
| popular independent Linux distributions for 
| netbooks for the last few years. And when I 
| say independent, as the name makes clear 
| Eeebuntu started out as a modified version 
| of Ubuntu Linux â which is maintained by a 
| nice big institution called Canonical. But 
| Eeebuntu releases typically pack a number of 
| customizations that make Ubuntu run better 
| on low power netbooks with small displays. 
| The latest release wasnât even based on 
| Ubuntu anymore, instead using Debian Linux 
| as its base (Ubuntu is also Debian-based).


Ubuntu Satanic Edition 10.04 Features Stunning New Icon Theme And Wallpapers

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Satanic edition brings together the 
| best of free software and free metal music. 
| This is especially awesome if you are an 
| avid dark theme fan boy. Moreover the latest 
| Ubuntu Satanic edition brings in a brand new 
| icon theme and some stunning wallpapers as 
| well. There is a complete distro called 
| Ubuntu Satanic Edition, but here we will 
| concentrate on installing Ubuntu Satanic 
| themes and other eyecandy in your native 
| Ubuntu machine.


Netrunner 2 â Blacklight â A new release! 

,----[ Quote ]
| The switch to KDE (4.4) came as a surprise 
| to me.  I was very happy with the Gnome 
| offering of Netrunner and thought it was an 
| excellent grounding for future versions.  
| Iâve never been a fan of KDE, whilst many 
| users rave about the DE, Ive often said that 
| I donât feel in control with it, it feels 
| plastic and is far too Vistaesque for my 
| liking.  Maybe I subconsciously yearn for an 
| XP type DE or maybe it goes back further to 
| Workbench 1.3, but my DE of choice has 
| always been Gnome with a top+bottom taskbar 
| and the more traditional menus.  Itâs worth 
| noting that whilst the taskbar and desktop 
| are obviously KDE, the menu systems have a 
| very Gnome look to them.  Is this an 
| intention by the devs to please both KDE and 
| Gnome users?  Maybe, although I donât keep 
| ontop of the latest KDE releases so Iâll 
| stand corrected if its the default setting 
| for the new version.
| With that in mind though the distro is 
| excellent, speedy and simple to install 
| (thanks to its Ubuntu origins) with very 
| little fuss âout of the boxâ.  As I remarked 
| previously, theres very little to find fault 
| in Netrunner, although I still stand by the 
| original comment that the name of this 
| distro undersells its true potential.  When 
| I was informed of this new release by email, 
| I instantly thought of a net kiosk distro 
| (since Ive looked at many distroâs since the 
| original review)   Of course Netrunner is 
| far from being a net kiosk package (although 
| it will play very nicely on a netbook or 
| limited spec machine) and also think the 
| title since âNetrunnerâ implies something 
| more net/cloud orientated, which compared to 
| say Peppermint, its not.  Netrunner has menu 
| links to Twitter and other online services, 
| but instead of providing these services 
| through Prism, they merely open up a new 
| instance of Firefox (if one is not open, or 
| simply open in a tab).  One has to ask the 
| question, are they really needed? and if so 
| could these shortcuts not simply be in a 
| favorites menu within Firefox, rather than 
| taking a desktop submenu up? â Only you can 
| be the judge of that.
| [...]
| would ever notice itâs absence from 
| Netrunner - unless of course they were fans 
| of Gbrainy! ;) in which case they will be 
| devastated!  What the removal of the Mono 
| packages does do is free up space to include 
| more popular products and that can only be a 
| good thing.



Ubuntu Satanic Edition 10.04 (Luciferâs Legion)

,----[ Quote ]
| Summary:      The distro for the damned has
| risen again and walks among us. Itâs
| chock-full of amazing satanic grace and
| charm. Highly recommended for Linux users
| who are tired of being goody two-shoes and
| who want to take a walk on the dark side
| of Ubuntu Linux.
| Rating:       4/5


Ubuntu Satanic Edition 666.6 (Jesus' Jugular) Review

,----[ Quote ]
| We've looked at a couple of religious based distributions such as Ubuntu:
| Christian Edition and Ubuntu: Muslim Edition. But there's another version of
| Ubuntu...a dark and evil one. A version so hideous and so terrible that it's
| name is only spoken in whispers among Linux users...
