Every GNOME Shell user will visit the official GNOME Shell Extensions website at least once. And if those users do so this weekend they’ll notice a small difference as the GNOME Shell Extensions website is sporting a minor redesign.
Today, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we posted a brief review about MobaLiveCD: a freeware which allows you to freely test new Linux Distro using Windows. MobaLiveCd uses Qemu to work; personally, I think that Qemu is one of the best and lightest open source processor emulator and virtualizer you can find today. Qemu is easy to use and, also more important, it “achieves near native performances by executing the guest code directly on the host CPU” so the results you can obtain using MobaLiveCD are very impressive and I believe that the performances are really comparable to a complete installation. MobaLiveCd allows you to spare your time because all the new Linux distros can be tested with just few clicks running the .iso through it. I personally recommend this freeware also because it light and it can be directly used from a USB key. Something really interesting!
Today, in our Linux Page, Frank has posted some useful notes about how to create a personalised live CD-DVD based on Ubuntu or Kubuntu. UCK 1.4 is the new powerful version of Ubuntu Customization Kit which allows you to easily customize the main Ubuntu functions: kernel, languages, software and … create in just few clicks.. your personal live Ubuntu CD. You can use UCK just for fun or to develop your ideal Ubuntu distribution to spread on the web. Enjoy it!
We use Linux because the possibility of crashes is lower than in other OS but sometimes some programs decide to lock themselves causing different problems to our PC usability.. When it happens we usually decide to use ksysguard but it doesn’t end our program. Today, in our Linux Page we have added a post about another way to solve these kind of matters using the PID. The post is short but we think it could be very useful for many Linux users. In fact, using the PID to kill a program is less time waster than restart the pc. See you soon and thanks for your comments!
Today, Frank posted in our Linux Page a brief but effective post about SuperGamer2 which is the new -revised and improved- version of SuperGamer; perhaps, one of the most interesting bootable Linux versions created for video players. This DVD Linux is full of very interesting games and its compatibility is higher than never. In fact the people from SuperGamer have updated the hardware drivers and solved some problems they discovered in the first version. Now SuperGamer (based on PCLinuxOS) can be used in more motherboards than in the past and I think they are working on a better version of this wonderful bootable DVD Linux!
Today, in the Linux Page, Frank has posted a very interesting review about IEs4Linux. In fact sometimes we have to use IE in websites created only for IE. The post is very detailed and contains all the instruction to install IEs4Linux in Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Obviously, we personally prefer Firefox but IE is an essential feature to “surf” the web also when we use Linux.
In the Linux page we posted a short review about – Ubuntu Christmas edition 2006 -. This fantastic version of Ubuntu is a live DVD which can be freely installed on your PC. This edition is particularly full of useful features, moreover themes & graphics are very accurate. I strongly believe that Ubuntu Xmas Edition 2006 is one of the best Linux you can try (or better install on your pc) if you are planning to use Linux as your main OS. If you are a beginner you have just to put Xmas Ubuntu into the DVD reader and you can enter Linux world!
