Since we brought up Linux yesterday, I thought it would be a good idea to do a little intro to the operating system. Here's our plan to test and review 5 Linux distributions over the next 5 weeks, with a final recap and comparison on week 6.
The Linux distribution of the day is Fedora. This variant of the open source OS was built on the same foundation as Red Hat Linux, the software that underpins most web servers. Let's dig in and see what Fedora has to offer.
Built for stability and responsiveness without giving up versatility, Linux Mint is based on the Ubuntu platform and modified to fit a more professional environment. Easily the second most widely used PC focused distribution, Mint is well refined by the developer community. Let's take a look at this fresh distribution.
Developed to port Ubuntu to smaller systems, Bodhi expanded and has developed a supporting community all its own. A much lesser know distribution than our previous reviews, it's definitely a hidden gem in the Linux community. Let's have a look.
MacPup was presented to me as a Linux built for Mac users, claiming a look that felt more like OSX than a Windows distribution. Originally installed with a skin for the Enlightenment window manager that was nearly identical to a Mac desktop, the distribution targeted the Apple demographic. Let's see what version 5.5 has to offer.
Over the past couple of weeks we've reviewed several Linux distributions, letting you know how they would stack up for use in your business. Hopefully we also taught you a little about Linux and it's usability in the office environment. Let's take a recap of the distributions we tested. Then, we'll suggest the one overall we think would make the best choice for use in an office. Here we go!
It's that time of year again. Gift giving, lighted decorations, and lots of family over at the house.
