I am in search of the perfect LDE4 distro, and this is going to be a looong series. I am going through various distros, and have not found a perfect one yet.

Recently, with my review of Linux Mint KDE two of the commenters pointed out that my scoring for Mint’s WiFi did not make sense.

Fourth Installment in this series, and today I bring you some thoughts on Linux Mint 9 KDE4.

I have spent more than a week with it, and I am very impressed. This weekend I will switch to my third candidate.

Part three of this series, and I am writing this from Linux Mint 9 KDE4. Already I am feeling very at home with it, and already after working heavily with quite a few KDE distros in a short timeframe I begin to realise some things that I find wrong with them are KDE specific.

(New to this series? Read from DAY ONE)

Right, day two of this seven day series.

It is fortuitous that I started this series on Saturday instead of my normal Monday start. This gave me a chance to set up all my necessary programs and stuff like SSH keys etc before starting work Monday. Previously I would start Monday at the deep end with a new interface and wing it from there.

Being Sunday I did not do much else, so today will be a short writeup. continue reading…

The geek in me wants to try new stuff, and learn how they work. The geek in me also strives to be different than the mainstream. That is why I use Linux Software and is one of the reasons I run LinuxMint instead of Ubuntu Linux – everybody knows about Ubuntu, and it has lost a bit of its street-cred modifier.

Now Linux is becoming mainstream – people see you running something different and they ask “Hey! Is that Linux?”
