Debian 6 Squeeze, the universal operating system, finally released

After exactly two years of development and with over 10,000 new packages, version 6 of the wunderkind jack of all trades, Debian, has been released. This release, along with support for i386, amd64, powerpc, sparc, mips, mipsel, ia64, s390 and armel architectures, also features a technical preview of Debian ported to the FreeBSD kernel, dubbed Debian GNU/kFreeBSD.

Midori - a lightweight Webkit-based browser - lands on Windows

While I like Google Chrome, there are plenty of Webkit-based alternatives out there. One I enjoy using on my Crunchbang system is Midori - an efficient and highly customizable browser that made the jump to Windows just a couple months ago. It's important to note that Midori is still in the alpha stage - recently hitting 0.1.10 on Linux and the Windows binaries now on 0.1.8. If you're after...

Flipping the Linux switch: Xfce, the hidden gem of desktop environments

In the beginning, we talked a bit about the holy war that wages onward between KDE and GNOME. Some of you aptly pointed out that there is a third desktop environment out there.

If you have to use Windows for your day job or for a few must-have applications, but you're a penguin at heart, have we got a program for you.

Zenwalk 5.0 beta is available for testing

We have a confession to make. We are secretly, deeply, head over heels in love with Zenwalk Linux. Zenwalk is a Slackware-based distro. It's lightweight, it's modern, and though it may not be the easiest distribution to install, we've certainly had worse experiences. Zenwalk 5.0 beta was released for testing yesterday. The 5.0 release has some major changes: the use of HAL in place of its own...

Ubuntu tip: Turning Ubuntu into Kubuntu or Xubuntu

So now that Gutsy Gibbon is out, you've decided to try out Ubuntu. But you can't decide which version of the popular Linux distribution is right for you. Ubuntu's main system has a toolbar at the top, a brown color scheme, and comes with Firefox preloaded. But Kubuntu has a nice calming blue feel, a Windows-like taskbar and start menu, and comes with a powerful new file explorer called Dolphin....
