You are yet to get it all

There was a period of around 12 years, I used Windows-based system, even a HTC handheld with Windows installed. I thought, and perhaps think even now, that Microsoft treats you as a teenager and act like a 'big bro' which is good when your primary business is not with devices. Linux, on the other hand, gives you more credit than Windows do. The main reason of my being with Windows platform was I focused on productivity, keeping aside my self customized environment.

Bridge Linux – Arch with "a human face”

Posted 05-05-2012 at 10:58 PM by ludvick

As a preliminary.

Maybe a bit on the recently growing wave of popularity of Arch Linux (I get the impression that many people just reach for this distribution), I made an attempt to install a 64-bit version of this system with KDE.

Because, I'm rather an individual, who loves comfort, I started from Chakra Linux. However, the "specific" approach of its creators to GTK applications (I use a few, and not everything is in the bundles), determined that I said...

Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on more than a dozen (previously 2) own laptops and have installations running on 6 (previously 3) others.

One is a 7 year old siemens-nixdorf laptop used by a retired person for internet e-mail and a bit of card games. He loves it for the speed and ease of use. Especially the order of the programs in the very simple groups such as "Internet" "Multimedia" etc.

One is a 5 year old Toshiba. It came to me with a very ugly virus, trojan,...

Moving on

Posted 12-14-2011 at 10:20 PM by zaivala

Well, I finally upgraded my iron, but there wasn't money for a "real" computer. I now have an ASUS Eee PC 1215P, 1.5 GHz dual-core Atom. It came loaded with Win 7 HP... 32-bit,...
