TuxMachines.org has a thorough review of Slax 5.1.4.
Slax recently released version 5.1.4 of their amazing “pocket os” and since it had been almost a year since our last look, we thought we’d better find out what 5.1.4 was like. Much like its predecessor, it has a whole lot chocked into a small kde-based download. At 192 mb, is it worth the download?
DesktopLinux.com has an interesting article about Linux on the desktop compared to Windows. The Linux talked about in the review, and screenshots, evolved from Knoppix.
I’ve seen a lot of rough edges polished off and features added as I continued to update my system, which started life as a Knoppix Live CD.
NewsForge has another installment of My desktop OS up, this time covering PCLinuxOS 0.92. While it is mostly tailored to the hard drive install, it does give some information about the LiveCD aspect of the distro.
The new DistroWatch Weekly has an interview with the developers of Damn Small Linux. There is much talk about their new DSL-N release.
ExtremeTech has an article up on making a bootable movie. This is one of the cooler uses of a Linux LiveCD which I’ve seen. Think of all the effort that went into this project, with the end result being an alternative to a DVD player.
OSDir.com has screenshots of the new Frenzy 1.0 Beta 1 BSD LiveCD.
Unix Review takes a look at SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3, starting with impressions of the LiveCD.
This time around, booting MEPIS was a much better experience. The user login screen was presented quickly, I logged in, and after a few disc whirs the desktop lay before me in all of its glorious KDE beauty and splendor, with stereo sound to boot.
DesktopLinux.com is reporting the updates in the latest SystemRescueCd release.
Tuxmachines.org has up a review of the Gentoo based Litrix LiveCD. Lots of nice looking screenshots go along with this review.
