This week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we uploaded a brief post about SUSE Studio an online service which allows you to create new distribution based on openSUSE 11.2. The online OS builder allows you to choose between 32 bit or 64 bit system based on SUSE, GNOME, KDE, Minimal X or text only Server. In the next menu you will be asked to choose all the software you prefer (7,876 different packages). After this, you can also choose and personalize, for example: language, keyboard, network, firewall and users. Moreover, you can personalize the boot-up and all the programs you want to automatically autostart. SUSE Studio is very interesting and allows you to create the best Linux OX for all your needs. Recommended!
Today, in our Linux Page (in Spanish), we posted some brief information about the new Linux beta version of Skype (22.214.171.124). The updated Skype distribution contains a new chat feature with an integrated SMS service. Also the audio and video codecs have been developed and a bluetooth option has been added. This beta release seems to be very stable and we hadn’t any problems during our tests. Skype released different versions related to main Linux distributions: Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse and a very useful tar.bz2 for all the other Linux versions. Recommended!
Lubi is a useful tool for all people who like to experiment different Linux OS on their PCs. In particular Lubi has been thought to let you install Ubuntu in just few clicks and without risking annoying “secondary effects” on your computer. In our Linux Page (in Spanish) we have posted a small but effective review with all the necessary links to the Lubi project and we have also listed all the Linux OS (PCLinuxOS 2007 32-bit, openSUSE 10.2 32-bit, Gentoo 2007.0 32-bit, etc..) already tested for a safe -Lubi- use. We strongly recommend Lubi for all users who want to deeply test Ubuntu (and its features) without starting from the Live CD.
This week, in our Linux page we posted some news about Click’R Run, the well known Linspire’s software (free in its basic version) to manage applications, libraries and packages. Soon (more or less 5 months), Click’N Run will be available also for Debian, Fedora, Freespire, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. In its actual Linspire version, Click’N Run is very easy to use and has a library of 20.000 Linux packages so I think that it will be interesting to try when it will be available for the other Linux distributions.
