Anyone tried SkyOS?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 28, 2005
I'm always on the lookout for a new OS to try, at the moment the one which seems most interesting is SkyOS ( http://www.skyos.org/ ).
Its not free and not open source (which is both morally and politically displeasing) but for some reason I'm really tempted to fork over the US$30 for beta testing membership and give it a go.
Check out the screenshots, it looks really nice and seems to have surprisingly good hardware support but I think its a little strange to ask people to pay to do beta testing. Has anyone here ever tried this thing out? Or even know anything about the design?

Hey I am a long time user of Ubuntu/Mandrake-Mandriva and I'm not too Happy with Unity, but have any of you tried PCLinuxOS....? It installs really fast and works great out of the box.
Does anyone know why this site doesn't have them listed as a user group....?

Ubuntu CD doesn't contain most of the required softwares. They have to be downloaded from the net.
I was thinking of installing from the DVD when I saw the following quote on this page:

Pipeline for Ubuntu brings Silverlight 5 to the linux browser anyone tried this?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 20, 2013
Saw today that this was released recently
From the website:
Today we want to present you our latest project Pipelight, which allows to run your favorite Silverlight application directly inside your Linux browser. The project combines the effort by Erich E. Hoover with a new browser plugin that embeds Silverlight directly in any Linux browser supporting the Netscape Plugin API. He worked on a set of Wine patches to get Playready DRM protected content working inside Wine and afterwards created an Ubuntu package called Netflix Desktop. This package allows one to use Silverlight inside a Windows version of Firefox, which works as a temporary solution but is not really user-friendly and moreover requires Wine to translate all API calls of the browser. To solve this problem we created Pipelight.
Pipelight consists out of two parts: A Linux library which is loaded into the browser and a Windows progra

I recently picked up a Paceblade Pacebook and was wondering if there is anyone out there that has used any flavor of linux on such a device.

Ubuntu as the Primary OS [No more Win 7]. Has anyone tried it?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2013
I recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad T430. Upgraded the RAM to 16 GB. No Nvidia (Optimus). Just has Intel HD 4000 Graphics Card.
Looking for a Win 7 replacement that will let me -
1) Run 2-3 Instances of Linux (RHEL Clones) through VMWare Player so that I can toy around with Linux Clustering and Networking. My organization has a huge number of RHEL Servers and I need to toy around with the RHEL Clones through VM to get a better understanding of stuff.
2) Scripting - Mainly Perl. Bash/ksh , and some Python.
3) Watching Videos, Youtube, do online bank transactions (Browser based)
And yeah, equally important -
4) Install the BIOS/Firmware Upgrades released for T430.
Is Ubuntu suited for these tasks? Is there anyone currently using it (Preferably on a T430) as a (sort of a) Development Platform?
So is anyone using Ubuntu (12.04 upwards) and a development platform? How's the experience?
5) Heat/Exccessive Battery could reduce the life of my laptop. And I would hate to do t
Anyone tried Midori (webkit based browser)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 31, 2008
I`ve read some news about changes in the Gnome 2.22, and about the possibility to build Epiphany with Webkit engine instead of Gecko 1.8
I`m looking for a browser to replace FF2 and Epiphany in terms of the browser engine, so Ive found Midori...
As far as I know, Webkit is the browser engine upon which Apple`s browser Safari is running...
I haven`t tried it yet, so my question is about your experience with it...
[SOLVED] Has anyone tried to install ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux on their Slackware box?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 16, 2011
The system requirements for ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux are:
Red Hat, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, and most RPM and DEB Linux desktop distributions.
Can this be installed on Slackware?
I tried the download and install. Its says that after the install you need to reboot and an 'activate' application will start - it didn't.
I used ESET in my prior Windows life and it was great so I thought, why not in my linux life!
Any input would be appreciated.
