Fedora Day Four: Performance

So I’m now a few days into my time with Fedora, and things are going well so far. The machine is all up and running, and I’m back at my keyboard working away. We now know how to make Fedora look good, but how well does it perform in practice? Let’s take a look… System resources As many people reading this will already know, neither Fedora, or Gnome-Shell are ‘light... »

Fedora Day Three: Getting To Know Gnome-Shell

So I’m now on day three of my mini adventure with Fedora 18, and I have to say, the more I use Gnome-Shell (and Fedora) the more I’m really enjoying myself. Now that I’ve got the base OS installed, and it’s personalised to my liking, it’s time to start playing around with Gnome-Shell to see what it has to offer… What I like I think one of the biggest draws of G... »

Fedora Day Two: Customisation

So now I’ve got my Fedora 18 machine all up and running from Day One, and I’m now ready to get some work done, and oh what a busy day it’s been.

A week with Fedora

I’m a huge fan of trying new things and expanding my knowledge. That’s how I first got started in Linux as I was bored of Windows and wanted to learn something new. My current OS is Elementary Luna, but it occurred to me the other day that since I’ve been apart of this amazing community, I’ve only ever used Ubuntu derivatives.

Why We Use Linux

Why We Use Linux

On my blog I recently wrote about my “rise to Linux”. Within this article I explained where my love of all things technical came from and why I eventually stuck with Linux, well Ubuntu to be more precise. Whilst writing that article it made me think about why we use Linux variants over other operating systems. Here’s why I think we do… Freedom I think this is arguably the most importan... »

Elementary OS Luna Beta 2 Released

Elementary OS Luna Beta 2 Released

Just a few hours ago the release of Elementary OS Luna beta 2 was announced on the official Elementary Journal. But what does that mean for us users, and is it finally ready? It’s ready when it’s ready… The guys over at Elementary HQ are notorious for not restricting themselves to any kind of release cycle. Opting instead for a “ready when it’s ready” approa... »
