Linux Mint 12 mini review and some tips
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2011
With the recent release of Linux Mint 12, and as a mostly happy Gnome 3 user, I thought I'd make a video about it. Mint always seems to strive to do what the user's best interest would be, and I thought it'd be interesting to take a look at the controversial Gnome 3 desktop from the magnificent Mint team.
Also just showed a couple tips and tid bits about getting around some of the annoyances and "Why in the world did they do that?!" moments of Gnome 3.
It's not super technical, as I'm not a top notch guru, just thought it'd be interesting and hopefully helpful. Anyway, here is the link:
A review of SAM Linux Desktop 2007
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 20, 2007
I was wasting time on distrowatch.com the other day and came across SAM Linux Desktop 2007.
SAM Linux is a lightweight PCLOS-based distro that uses the Xfce windows manager.
It seemed like a good fit for some of my older hardware, so I downloaded and burned the Live CD.
Overall Look and Layout
I popped in the CD, rebooted the system and launched the OS. After answering a few basic questions about locale and configuring my ethernet connection, I was presented with a very nice desktop.
SAM Linux uses the Dropline Neu! Icon Theme, which I found easy on the eyes and modern looking. The Wbar application chooser is also utilized, which to anyone who has seen it, is a really slick application for providing access to your favorite applications.
The menus were a little confusing at first; I had trouble finding the things I wanted. After using the menus for a while I got a better graps on the general layout of the menus and didn't struggle to find an application I was looki
[SOLVED] How to review boot messages?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 16, 2010
EDIT: not fully solved; there is (at time of writing) still an issue about bootlogd buffering until the logfile is accessible but that's probably as far as we are going to get for now, until someone peeks into the bootlogd source code.
Is it possible to review boot messages after boot?
Kernel messages are available via dmesg (and many are logged early in the rc.M script by the /bin/dmesg -s 65536 > /var/log/dmesg) but many console boot messages are not kernel messages. During boot, messages can be viewed using Shift+PgUp but when the rc.S script finishes, init starts an agetty on tty1 which prints a login prompt. Then tty1 is no longer the console and Shift+PgUp cannot be used to scroll back through the boot messages. Any delayed boot messages do not have effective carriage returns so "marquee" across the screen, one following another, a line below.
Is it possible to leave tty1 as the console by de-configuring the tty1/agetty line in inittab, thus allowing S

I just created the review page for Edgy Eft on Linuxquestions.org. The link isn't there for some reason, but you can view the page if you go to another release of Ubuntu and page between the versions with the buttons. If you're a member of linuxquestions.org and would like to review 6.10, you can review it here.

LXer: It just works: Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition Linux Ultrabook review
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 21, 2013
Published at LXer:
In an effort originally known as Project Sputnik, Dell dedicated resources into doing Linux on an Ultrabook "right"—writing code where necessary (and contributing that code back upstream like a good FOSS citizen) and paying attention to the entire user experience rather than merely working on components in a vacuum. The result is a perfectly functional Ultrabook with a few extra tools—that "Developer Edition" moniker isn't just for show, and Dell has added some devops spices into the mix with this laptop that should quicken any developer's heartbeat.

Thinkpad T530 review
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 4, 2012
So, spent a good few hours with my new T530, installing Ubuntu, then later openSUSE, also using Windows for a while.
Specs - Intel Core i7 (dual-core), 8 GB ram, 500 GB 7200 rpm HDD, Intel HD 4000 graphics, Centrino Ultimate wireless, 1080p screen
First off, look and feel. The physical size is smaller than I was expecting. It's no ultrabook, but it has a small footprint, and isn't as thick as I thought it would be. It's also alot more modern looking than I was expecting, the black plastic/carbon composite looks really sleek. Also feels very nice.
Keyboard - at first I wasn't sure about it, didn't like the feel initially. Then started typing, and guess what, I'm typing quicker and more accurately than ever before. Typing feels incredibly natural on the chiclet keys, very pleasant surprise. Probably my new favourite keyboard (even better than the keyboard I have attached to my desktop).
Screen - amazing. 1080p, great colours, super sharp, best computer screen I've ever lo
Linuxemporium a customer review.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 22, 2007
A while ago I posted a message asking for details of anyone in the UK selling laptops with Linux pre-installed. This generated some private messages from people wanting to know how I got on in my search.
So this is by way of a customer review. I stress that I have no connection with Linuxemporium, other than being a very happy customer.
First off, this was my first laptop, ever. Second, I'm quite new to Linux. So I had two reasons to be nervous. For this reason, I sent Linuxemporium a crazy number of emails with pre-purchase questions. In retrospect, some of the questions were probably so dumb that the Linuxemporium folks must have wondered what sort of idiot they were dealing with, and if I was ever actually going to buy anything.
But every email was answered, promptly, politely and helpfully. Eventually I did buy one of their machines. (Lenovo 3000 N100). I purchased it with extra memory, and thought this might cause a bit of a delay, but it arrived very quickly, wel
