Pisi Linux Is Out!

Pisi Linux 2.0 was released a few days ago, and I did not realize about it.  Too bad, because I really liked this distribution and was fairly active in the community before everything went totally Turkish.

Well, it's time to download this little kitten, the heir of the old Pardus.  I want to see the result from the hard work of Pisi developers (they are a small team), and I have high expectations.

I can't wait for my download to finish (it's 1.7 GB).

The Latest News and a Few Tricks

These are very puzzling times.  Let's see a few interesting examples:

1.  Microsoft develops a Linux OS: This is not a joke. Really. Some think hell froze over.

2.  Ubuntu recovers its ability to produce customized live images:  The feature that many people miss from newer Ubuntu releases is finally back thanks to Pinguy Builder.

3. OLPC has met a sad end: I guess corporate influence had nothing to do with it.

4.  I've met more Linux users than ever and even saw the name "Linux"  displayed next to a smart TV in a printed advertisement of a mainstream seller here.

And now, a trick for those who, like me, have had problems with the newest Firefox, who refuses to obey its localization and language pack:

a. Install language packs
b. Add the add-on: a small colored notice will appear in the upper right corner. Click on it and then click to add.
c. Enabling. From Firefox 59 on:
  • Type about:config in the addres bar
  • Create a new string with this name:
  • Finish it with the appropriate value (fr-FR, es-ES,...)
