What is Heads all about?

Heads is a GNU/Linux liveCD distribution aimed at people who like the aspect of controlling their privacy and anonymity on the Internet. You might have heard of Tails as a similar GNU/Linux distribution. heads was born as an answer to Tails, since Tails is using systemd as an init system and also contains non-free software.

In heads, the init of choice is not systemd. systemd is a huge piece of software that,...

Distro Hopping

Posted 10-31-2012 at 11:50 AM by scorpioofthewoods

We all do it at one time or another. At some point(s) the urge hits you for whatever reason to try another distro. So lately I have been distro hopping.

Stable Linux Distro for frequent power cuts

Posted 08-26-2011 at 12:15 PM by nayeem

I am trying out different Linux Distros, some are easy to use some take time(me being a windows user!). Now I have a different kind of problem, I live in a place where power cuts are frequent so I would like to know if there is any distro which remain stable even if it is not shut down properly and the power goes. I mean when the power comes back it should not give me surprises in the form of warnings or becoming unstable or corrupting the data.

Thanks....

It all depends on your needs. The reason there are so many distros is because each tries to accommodate the needs of different groups of users.

I like Kubuntu for my personal desktop system, but there are many others worth considering. Try some of these places to help you choose.
