Antergos 2013.11.17 review

Antergos 2013.11.17 review

Antergos is a Linux distribution based on Arch Linux. Formerly known as Cinnarch, it is a relatively new project and is poised to do for Arch Linux what Ubuntu did for Debian. Like it’s parent distribution, it uses a rolling-release development model, which means that existing users do not have to reinstall to get the latest and greatest kernel and […]

Semplice 5 review – High Hopes

Semplice 5 review – High Hopes

Sometimes I come across a distribution that looks interesting and I want to see how good it is and whether it brings anything new to the table. That’s why I decided to take a quick look at Semplice, a desktop distribution based on the unstable branch of Debian. Its name is said to derive from “simple” and that the developers […]

Parsix 5.0 “Lombardo” review

Parsix 5.0 “Lombardo” review

Parsix is one of those desktop distributions that I had a lot of hope for back when I started reviewing distributions for this site. But since, Parsix 3.7 (see Parsix 3.7 review), which was released back in mid-August of 2011, I lost any interest in it. Why? Simple because I did not see any point in it. The distribution wasn’t […]

Wifislack 4.6, the latest stable edition, was released on July 31 (2013). This is a Spanish distribution that’s made available for download as […]

Korora 19 review – Bruce

Korora 19 review – Bruce

Korora is a Linux distribution that is based on Fedora. Korora 19, code-named Bruce, which is based on Fedora 19, was released the day after its parent distribution was released. That’s a little more or less than 24 hours after Fedora 19 was released. Which means that the Korora developers did not conduct any testing of their own before making […]
