A Week With Fedora: End Of The Line

A Week With Fedora: End Of The Line

So I’ve been working with Fedora for over a week now, and I have to say that it’s been fun. I haven’t hit any major issues that are deal breakers for me. I’ve fully personalised Fedora’s Gnome Shell desktop environment, and I’m really happy. However, I think it’s time to go back to Ubuntu,and here’s why… Like I said, I’ve really enjoyed m... »

Fedora Day Three: Getting To Know Gnome-Shell

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

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. As I mentioned yesterday, the default look of Fedora leaves a lot to be desired, so I’ve been busy working away to get my OS looking and running how I like it. Installing software I used a number of sources to get my software loade... »

Fedora Day One: Installation

Fedora Day One: Installation

So far my first day with Fedora 18 has been quite a pleasant experience. However, I’ve been doing nothing but installing and configuring the OS instead of actually doing any real work. So far I have all my data moved over, some applications installed, and some basic tweaks to the system. Installation Overall I found the installation of Fedorato be fairly straightforward, however I did find t... »

A week with Fedora

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. This is because Ubuntu is the first name that m... »

A Week With Windows 8: Day Seven – Oh Ubuntu How I’ve Missed Thee

So my final day with Windows 8 is over and I am writing this post back on my trusty Ubuntu 12.04 hard drive. I have to say that it’s so good to be back, I just feel back at home in Ubuntu. Everything is where I expect it to be, easy to find and quick! So what what have been my up’s and down’s during my week with Windows 8? The good… Well, this part of the article is going t... »

A Week With Windows 8: Day Six – Making 8 Work For Me

A Week With Windows 8: Day Six – Making 8 Work For Me

First off guys, I’d like to apologise for not updating this series sooner. I went out last night with a really good friend of mine for a belated birthday celebration as it was my birthday last week but he was on holiday. Unfortunately we didn’t get home until around 04:30 in the morning, at which point I was in no fit state to even talk, let alone write a post. So I’m really so... »

A Week With Windows 8: Day Five – Personalisation

A Week With Windows 8: Day Five – Personalisation

In Ubuntu the possibilities for personalisation are almost limitless, one persons installation of Ubuntu may look completely different from anothers. You can change icons, fonts, themes, wallpapers, even the whole desktop environment! The options in Windows are usually a lot more restrictive – maybe that’s all changed for Windows 8… Unfortunately not – the options in Window... »
