Simply Magical - Mageia 2
Well I’ve tried a few different Linux operating systems now, and I’ve had some time to work with Mageia’s latest release, 2.
I’m a GNOME nut, so I was extremely excited because I wanted a Linux distro that was nice and simple, and continued in the GNOME desktop. I won’t bore you, but GNOME3 is a major upgrade from GNOME2.x.
UPDATE: With the development of Mageia 2 underway, we will only be covering basic features of Mageia 1. Don’t worry, Mageia 2 is gearing up to be an amazing release!•••• We present our first Linux Distro review, Mageia 1. Stay tuned.
Exploring Excellent Free Software
Free is always good.. especially if you’re broke. This blog post is going out to all those starving artists, under funded graphic designers, new business entrepreneurs and the person that has decided that maybe their 10 year old computer needs replacing. I will be listing some of the best free software (in my opinion since I use these software packages on a daily basis). So lets begin.
Your machine will not live forever
From the smallest thing as a light bulb to your computer, we depend on these devices to work. A bulb to give us light and a computer to allow us to connect to the world of information. Simply put, when a light bulb blows, the first thing that comes to mind is, “well, time to replace it.” Rather, the first thing that should come into our minds is, “Why did it blow out?” Basically.. after turning it on and off the stress is just too much for the bulb to continue. Thus, POP! No matter what you do, its going to die. This type of scenario can also be applied to your lovely computer.
What do you mean its GONE?
People do more with their computers then they did 20 years ago. We largely don’t use the postal service for sending letters to people of great distances. We may send greeting cards or wedding invitations to people, but when it comes to saying, “Hi! How are things?”, we use e-mail.
Where is the line of difference?
Where is it with users? Naming difference when put on the spot, takes a minute to click in with an answer, “Well I browse the internet, check my email, and my facebook.” Thats great.. what’s your point? Do you honestly think you can’t do that with Linux? Do you use Firefox or Google Chrome? If so, thats a good thing. because those exact programs are available for Linux as well.
