Fedora 19 – Schrödinger’s Cat – preview

http://www.linuxbsdos.com

The GNOME 3 edition features the latest release of the GNOME 3, which is GNOME 3.8. While the default GNOME Shell is still the same that I’m not a very big fan of, there are some useful and very user-friendly features that factor nicely into my desktop computing needs.

Linpus Lite 1.9 review

http://www.linuxbsdos.com

Hybryde Fusion: A very unique Linux distribution

http://www.linuxbsdos.com

From the release number, you can probably guess that it is based on Ubuntu Desktop 13.04. But what you cannot guess from the name or release number is that it ships with its own desktop environment called HY-D-V1.
