Opera 9.2 was released this morning to a surprizing amount of interest. I suppose one of the reasons for all this excitement is the new feature called Speed Dial.

GoblinX Premium 2007.1 - original work by srlinuxx - Tue, 10/04/2007 - 10:53pm

GoblinX developers released their 2007.1 Premium version of GoblinX Linux recently and I was able to obtain the 1-cd version for testing. GoblinX has always been a very interesting project to watch with their odd-looking almost macabre-themed XFCE distro.

Since our good friend liquidat is taking a vacation, on a business trip, or having a kidney removed, I thought I'd try to brief folks on the latest KDE commit digest.

PCLinuxOS founder Texstar said in a private interview that they would using Ubuntu for the base of future versions of PCLinuxOS. Citing the old adage 'if you can't beat 'em, join 'em,' Texstar states that PCLinuxOS 2007 will be delayed for another six months or so while the new change is implemented.

SabayonLinux 3.3 Mini on that HP Laptop - original work by srlinuxx - Wed, 28/03/2007 - 2:48am

Given the growing popularity of SabayonLinux, my continued bad luck with it1, and the fact that my dvdburner died this past weekend, I decided to test the newly released Sabayon Linux 3.3 Mini.

Sam Linux 2007 - For the XFCE Lover - original work by srlinuxx - Fri, 23/03/2007 - 7:09am

Sam Linux 2007 was released yesterday and since it's been little over a year since my last test of Sam, I thought I might see what was new.

A New Year, A New Kwort - original work by srlinuxx - Wed, 21/03/2007 - 7:31am

It was just about a year ago that I first tested slackware-based Kwort Linux. At that time I was impressed with its customized appearance and exclusive kpkg.

openSUSE 10.3 alpha 2 report - original work by srlinuxx - Sun, 18/03/2007 - 2:30am

Another opensuse 10.3 alpha release is upon us already and there must be some major changes in progress. This hasn't been an easy "textbook" example of a beta test this release as issues began almost immediately after download.

Kicking the tires of Mandriva 2007.1 beta 2 - original work by srlinuxx - Sun, 04/03/2007 - 10:29pm

The folks at Mandriva are hard at work preparing the next incarnation of MandrivaLinux systems for home, office, and server applications. Mandriva Linux 2007.1 Beta 2 was announced yesterday and I wanted to take a look. I didn't spend a lot of time in it due to a personal showstopper, but what I saw really nice looking. So, as brief as it may be, I'd thought I'd share my experiences with my visitors.

Quick Cruise Around Fedora 7 Test 2 - original work by srlinuxx - Sat, 03/03/2007 - 5:32am

Fedora 7 test 2 was announced yesterday and since they now put out livecds as well as their install images, I thought I'd take it for a little test drive. Fedora's always been a bit neglected around here, but there are good reasons for that. Honestly, I've never been a big Red Hat fan and Anaconda discriminating against my hard drives didn't help. So, Fedora being delivered in a livecd format gives Tuxmachines a welcomed opportunity to test it.

Testdriving Sidux 2007 - original work by srlinuxx - Thu, 01/03/2007 - 3:44am

I've been busy testing away at distros lately. I know I haven't produced too many reviews lately, but that's because since receiving my laptop this passed Christmas, distros now have a higher hurdle to clear. I've been testing, but not many are up to the challenge of a commercially available off-the-rack laptop. One "almost there" was VectorLinux which I reviewed for this week's DistroWatch Weekly.

openSUSE 10.3 alpha 1 Report - original work by srlinuxx - Tue, 20/02/2007 - 4:16am

It's that time again. Yes, it's the beginning of the next openSUSE developmental cycle. It began with the release of 10.3 alpha 1 last Thursday. Reports have already been circulating with some of the new changes.

SaxenOS 1.1 rc2 - original work by srlinuxx - Sun, 04/02/2007 - 9:39am

It's been over a year since I tested the origins of SaxenOS, but when rc2 of version 1.1 was announced I thought it was time to see what was new. There have been changes afoot within the SaxenOS project, some major changes. Yet some of the fundamentals remained the same. It was easy to see the roots of Saxen while appreciating the new.

PCLinuxOS 2007 Beta 2 (Test 1) - original work by srlinuxx - Sun, 21/01/2007 - 2:00am

The time is drawing near. The highly anticipated release of the all new PCLOS is right around the corner. Tex and the gang are uploading a beta to mirrors for public testing, but this lucky gal has been running an early beta on my new laptop for a coupla weeks now. I know, I can feel it in my bones, that this release will cause quite a stir. PCLOS already has one of the most loyal fan-bases in the game, but this release will bring more users than ever.

NimbleX 2007 - As the Name Implies... - original work by srlinuxx - Wed, 17/01/2007 - 3:27am

NimbleX is a small slackware-based distribution that made its way onto DistroWatch's Waiting List last September. While many on the list seem to stop development and disappear off the net, it appears NimbleX is progressing onward. Their site has undergone a recent update as well as their distro. NimbleX 2007 was released on Christmas Day and I decided it sounded like an interesting project to test.

SabayonLinux 3.26 on my HP Pavilion Laptop - original work by srlinuxx - Thu, 11/01/2007 - 2:12pm

SabayonLinux 3.26 was released on Jan 7, only a short time after 3.25. This maintenance release is the last of the 3.2 series and the team will now concentrate on 3.3. While many reviews shout accolades to this rising star, Tuxmachines once again suffered a loss of data making our experience a bit mixed. This is a short description of our time with SabayonLinux.

SimplyMepis is in another development cycle and version 6.0-4 beta 2 was recently released. I wasn't overly impressed with the original 6.0 release and was a bit curious as to how things were progressing. So, I downloaded the 32bit beta 2 to give it a test run.

What's New in Symphony OS 2006-12 - original work by srlinuxx - Tue, 26/12/2006 - 2:00am

The Symphony OS project released a new version of their unique system on December 13 to the surprise and delight of many in the Linux community. Many feared the revolutionary new desktop might be doomed due to a lack of funding, but developers chugged along through hard times and presented us with the culmination of months of work.

openSUSE 10.2 Final Report - original work by srlinuxx - Sat, 23/12/2006 - 8:44pm

Although I had planned to write a full length review of openSUSE 10.2 at the time of the RC release, I later decided against it. ...until I received a shiny new HP Pavilion notebook computer for Christmas and needed to install a Linux distribution. I obviously chose openSUSE 10.2 and I'm not sorry I did. This will describe some of my experiences with this fine distro on my new equipment.

openSUSE 10.2 Changelog & Version Highlights - original work by srlinuxx - Fri, 15/12/2006 - 7:05pm

There are many informative and complete reviews of openSUSE 10.2 already published, some with nice screenshots, so I don't see the point in writing yet another. However, for those interested, I have compiled a small report (for lack of a better word) on some of the notable contents of the Changelog and some package version highlights.

openSUSE 10.2 RC 1 Report - original work by srlinuxx - Sat, 25/11/2006 - 9:14pm

We're in the homestretch now. The only planned release candidate of openSUSE 10.2 was released a few days ago and final is expected to be released to the public on December 7. From this point on only showstopper and security bugfixes get integrated, so we are able to get a real good idea of 10.2 from this rc. I must say, from what I've seen, this is going to be a great release.

Quick Look at Urli OS 6.10 - original work by srlinuxx - Mon, 13/11/2006 - 6:04am

Urli 6.10 is an Debian/Ubuntu derived Linux OS developed in Argentina. It was recently added to distrowatch's waiting list and sounded a bit interesting given that their motto seems to be "Linux like never before!" Well, this I had to see.
