KaOS | Review From an openSUSE User

KaOS Review Title

KaOS is as distribution that has, for whatever reason, not been top of mind at all during my time with Linux. I think it is unfortunate that this has been the case because I really like what is going on here with this project. The developers and maintainers have done a lot to ensue that … Continue reading KaOS | Review From an openSUSE User

A biased review of elementary OS 6.0 Odin by an openSUSE user.

UbuntuDDE | Review from an openSUSE User

The Linux and open source community is a wonderful thing and as part of a BDLL community we have these distribution challenges. Try out a different distribution and talk about your experience. There was a lot of excitement about having the Deepin Desktop on the Ubuntu base and I decided to commit to this challenge. … Continue reading UbuntuDDE | Review from an openSUSE User

Fedora 33 | Review from an openSUSE User

Keeping inline with my general theme of being late to the party, I have finally given Fedora 33 a spin. I have previously reviewed Fedora 31 and really enjoyed it very much. In fact, every time I have used Fedora, it has indeed been a great experience. I am again trying out Plasma because I … Continue reading Fedora 33 | Review from an openSUSE User

Ubuntu Cinnamon | Review from an openSUSE User

There is something fun about the smattering of new releases of Ubuntu and flavors every six months. I don’t try them all as I just don’t have the time. I do like to try the new ones, see what they’re all about. It’s one thing to try Kubuntu, where you already know what you are … Continue reading Ubuntu Cinnamon | Review from an openSUSE User

NetRunner | Review from an openSUSE User

NetRunner (19.08) is not one of those distributions I hear touting its uniqueness and wonders loudly on the Internet. As part of a two week challenge for BigDaddyLinux Live, I lassoed an ISO and took it for a spin on a VM. Some may argue that a VM doesn’t make for a good test experience … Continue reading NetRunner | Review from an openSUSE User

Manjaro | Review from an openSUSE User

There are many flavors of Linux, we call them distributions but in a way, I think “flavor” is a good word for it as some some are a sweet and delightful experience while with others a lingering, foul taste remains. Manjaro has not left a foul taste in any way. In full disclosure, I am … Continue reading Manjaro | Review from an openSUSE User

EndlessOS | Review from an openSUSE User

EndlessOS is a distribution of Linux I have been watching from afar and almost dabbled with several times. Unfortunately for me and my biases, I didn’t take the time to get to know this distribution sooner. This is an incredibly interesting project that has been given a lot of time and care with plenty of … Continue reading EndlessOS | Review from an openSUSE User

FerenOS (2020) | Review from an openSUSE User

FerenOS undoubtedly focuses on visual aesthetics, user interface and user experience. The last time I looked at FerenOS, it was built on the Cinnamon Desktop Environment. At the time, the Plasma version was called “Feren Next” and and initially I was disappointed I didn’t use the Plasma version, but now I am very glad I … Continue reading FerenOS (2020) | Review from an openSUSE User

Fedora 31 | Review from an openSUSE User

Fedora is a Linux distribution that has been around since the beginning of my Linux adventure and for which I have incredible respect. I have reviewed Fedora before, and it was a good experience. Last time I used Fedora, I used Gnome and since I am kind of Gnome fatigued right now, I thought it … Continue reading Fedora 31 | Review from an openSUSE User
