Busy Days...

Lately, I've been very busy with my work and personal projects.  Still, I managed to download and burn PicarOS Diego 2014 and openmamba Rolling Release 20141008 (64 bits).

Interestingly enough, the live CD of openmamba is too big to fit on a CD.  I needed a DVD for it.  The first thing I noticed was that the cute mamba logo (it resembled an "S" before) now looks like an "O".  Or was it because I was running the rolling version?  That circular new mamba rolled as soon as I booted the system!

I haven't been able to test openmamba much, but so far I'm very pleased with this little known Italian distro.  Unfortunately, the liveCD does not have much software to try.  I have to download the live DVD or install the basic CD and then download the packages I want.  Since I don't have much time, I'll try downloading the full DVD later.

PicarOS, on its part, is doing better and better.  Now they added a trashbin and a minilauncher of several applications to the desktop.  They got rid of Poisson Rouge.  The developers added a lot of interesting features to this children-oriented distro, but I'll have to try them and test them when I get more time in my hands.  As I see it, that will have to wait for a couple of months...

Boy!  So much to do and so little time!

Bye Pisi Linux World!

I learned today that Pisi Linux World and its great forum are being discontinued due to "unifying technical reasons."

So, from now on it will be its official Turkish site.  I must say I'm baffled by the decision...

Hope this is for the best.

Still, my sincere thanks to all those good people at Pisi Linux World Forum.
