Hedgewars – The Worms redesigned

[ Monday, 4 May 2009, Adam M. ]

I remember the old times, when we would gather the whole family, and with impunity besiege the computer without a break. It was a time of the Worms series reign, a reign that we all enjoyed. Though the initial release hit the skies in 1994, I have never forgotten the past, and it was one [...]

Preview of Kubuntu 9.04

[ Friday, 10 April 2009, tzglobic ]

It is that time of the year again, along with the beginning of the spring, yet another release of Ubuntu 9.04 codenamed Jaunty Jackalope is coming shortly to a server near you. As the beta version was released couple of weeks ago, I decided to have a quick look and see what can be expected [...]

KDE 4.3 – early preview

[ Thursday, 9 April 2009, Bastion ]

Finally the day has come, when the curiosity about the KDE4.3 development branch took the better of me. Unfortunately the gap between what I was blogging on caused some confusion on what is really new out there. So the review will be a little unusual, more like a shooting in the dark ‘oh this looks [...]

The World Beyond Microsoft

[ Saturday, 28 March 2009, wiktorw ]

Some time ago I read an article on how some Microsoft developers call for some of their leaders to be replaced. Not that I actually care too much, but I started looking at the possible courses of action to happen if Microsoft vanished. What would a Microsoft-free world look like ?

Arch Linux – a distro collector’s pick

[ Monday, 16 March 2009, Adam M. ]

Are you tired of frequent seeking or all these mega-piles of CDs constantly growing on your desktop? Is there any place left out there? Do you really need to wait another six months to update your software or get the feature you expect? Well, what I want to tell you is that there is a [...]

Ubuntu 8.10 – A Positive Evolution

[ Thursday, 30 October 2008, Adrianot ]

Ubuntu 8.10 has been installed on my computer for over two weeks now. The tests began with beta version through RC and finished with the final release today. Usually I do not install test versions, however, favourable opinions of my friends convinced me it was worth trying. I have to admit, I am not disappointed [...]

SLAX 6.0: How does it work?

[ Sunday, 13 January 2008, Keyto ]

I don’t like Slackware. No, please! Do not stone me right away! Slackware is a very good operating system. It’s just not “compatible” with my nature. It’s the oldest Linux system, probably the only distro fully compatible with the original foundations of UNIX systems, and working according to the DIY paradigm (Do It Yourself). It [...]

Ubuntu Linux vs Windows Vista: The Desktop Battle

[ Sunday, 2 December 2007, michuk ]

It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple [...]
