Ubuntu Unity Experience-11.10-Update

Ubuntu Unity Experience-11.10-Update

I think then the “Ubuntu Bashing” that is going on is coming from not Linux users but by windows guys.
First of all I never used Ubuntu for my regular work.
I did not like when it disposed of root log in and that was the very reason I never used it on regular basis, coming from Redhat base.
I have used many Linux distribution and my Linux 100 was an attempt to highlight many distributions as possible.
Even though I did not use Ubuntu, every time a new Ubuntu comes I download the new image test it and keep it as an archive.
The other two I regular downloaded were Puppy and Knoppix.
Then I went into full gear and I started downloading every possible Linux from Turnkey to eyeOs.
After all this, one thing I must make it clear.
Every time a new Ubuntu come it was much better than the previous best Linux except my idiosyncrasy or the basic nuance no root log in.
Ubuntu 10 is pretty good and its L.T.S 10.04.3 is a very stable distribution.
The we have a lot of Ubuntu derivatives out there of which Ultimate Linux and Ultimate Linux Gamers scored heavily on my point scheme.
What is most striking for me was Ubuntu was Cloud Ready from its version 9.
Now the Ubuntu One has over million users.
Now I believe there are over 10 times or may be 20 times Ubuntu users worldwide.
That is 10 to 20 million users.
Most remarkable achievement of Ubuntu was it was the distribution that made some impact on Microsoft.
So bashing Ubuntu now using UNITY is the game they (windows guys) play in tandem with some not so regular Linux users.
I think Ubuntu is going from strength to strength and its Unity for me is pretty good and novel experience.
I LOVE that experience.
Managing change even in business world is difficult.
I think Ubuntu should hire a small team to manage this change. That will come good on the long run.
Its web site is doing an excellent JOB.
Visit it if you have time.
I for one join that team to promote all Ubuntu derivatives especially Unity and Cloud Service.
Not only that it is making Linux Mint popular.
I see that as a good byproduct and a very good plus factor for Ubuntu and a market hype.
Both are Debian derivatives and they indirectly make a slow moving Debian also target for newbies.
It is all good for Linux.
My worry is that the other 97 Linux I promote are not given a hearing due to this HYPE.
There is another good one on the market which I am currently downloading (very slow with only one seeder) and it is called Onyx64.
If you are bored visit my blogspot here.
Please do not forget Knoppix, Puppy my favorite and PCLinux FullMonty.
Do not forget EyeOS and EyeNUX.
This time even Suse has a done an excellent job and its derivatives that one can make from SUSE STUDIO is another attraction.
LINUX is well ahead of all the other commercial distributions (including ANDROIDS), come this Christmas.
The best Christmas gift one can give this time round is Linux from UNITY to VANITY.
Thank you Guys/Girls (developers), your hard work is paying dividends.

Ultimate Edition (Ubuntu) 3.0 / Tango Studio-Christmas Edition Update/Christmas Update

Ultimate Edition (Ubuntu) 3.0 / Tango Studio-Christmas Edition Update/Christmas Update
Ubuntu derivative Ultimate Linux 3.0 has done a quiet JOB for Linux Lovers by producing a wonderfully GOOD all-purpose DVD (both torrent and point to point available).
If you don’t like and find difficult to use Debian 6.0.3 update (I suggest you have both editions with you).
If you do not won’t to change this Christmas and do not want to try Unity or Gnome 3.0 these two will do all the honours for years to come.
Ultimate Edition 2.9 has both 32 bits and 64 bits versions and this one is only one DVD.
This has  limited number of games.
Only missing thing is cloud utility of Ubuntu One (Dropbox is there).
Please do not confuse with Ultimate Game Edition, which is different but very good too.
If you are Video Audio Artist, there is another Ubuntu derivative which is pretty good and have new features (without office packages).
That is Tango Studio with 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
Please do not confuse with Ubuntu Studio.
Thanks guys and girls for keeping Ubuntu roots alive and well.
I have one warning though.
Linux mint 12 i386 32 bit ( 1 GIB) image does not boot.
I downloaded it from Linuxtracker Torrents (twice)

Ubuntu Unity Experience-11.10 Ubuntu Unity Experience-11.10

Ubuntu 11.10 CD is out and I tested it and this is my verdict.
It is beautiful and good for a newbie to experiment with.
A old Linux Guy/Girl will get a heart attack if his/her composition is not like mine.
When I test a distribution having tested over 200 in two years, I have no strings or emotion attached.
I have already given 1420 (Gold standard is 2500 which only Debian has achieved and PCLinux somewhere there) out of 2500 and 300 is for the innovation (i.e Unity Desktop).
Basically it gets 1120 that is just a utility distribution which one cannot tweak to one’s satisfaction.
Why I say a old linux guy/girl get a heart attack.
It has messed up with the workplaces.
I still could not get all four workplaces working synchronized.
It frezes when more than 2 workplaces are filled up.
One can exchange the working program from one work place to other  but you cannot open two open office documents or web browser displaying two web sites.
Simply it has messed up with workplace experince and that also to 4, where we could have had 20.
I use 8. That is 6 from Full Monty and one customized to my needs. The other nothing on it.
As far as workplaces are concerned, PCLinux FulMonty is the best available desktop workplace experience, i have come across.
There is nothing to beat it and one can customize it to one’s needs.
If you want to experince a better unity experience download Dream Studio that come from Canada.
Read my blog post on Dream Studio.

Ubuntu’s Unity-Dream Studio- Is it a dream Come true for newbies?

Ubuntu’s Unity-Dream Studio- Is it a dream Come true for newbies?
I think so and thumbs up for this distribution which I could download overnight with 2.1 GiB.
there were only four Seeders but it was pretty fast.
Go and download it and increase the number of seeder proportion in relation to Leechers and enjoy Unity experience.
It is new experience for old hand of Linux like me who never used Ubuntu on regular basis except for demonstrations.
Regular Ubuntu users will grumble but I have told you what to do go ahead and have both old version and new version in the same box and enjoy the difference.
Sinhala capability was there which I did not test but probably need some smooth ironing which is another plus point.
It has Libre and Blender new version (Maya).
Please do not call it Apple like but call it this Linux Unity desktop.
It sure is a winner at the time of debt and cash crisis.
For good effects find a good compatible graphic card.
that may be the only thing you may have to change in your computer.
My old computer graphic was enough to take advantage of Unity.
few glitches I had with the unity CD with Terminals has been reasonably taken care of and I could load all the workplaces with a a running program and with a click it goes into full screen image.
Play with it and I do not know how far one can configure it to one’s needs but it is good as   it is why configure and make a mess?
Thank you guys and girls for doing hard work.
You guys and girls also need a rest and do not worry about complaints and by Christmas we all be saying well done to you.
