  • Top 3 Most Ambitious Linux Distros For 2018

    Here are my picks of the 3 most ambitious and exciting Linux distros for 2018.

    Keep in mind that I'm not saying these are the best Linux distributions; I'm saying these are the distros I'm keeping my eye on for this year.

    If your favorite distro isn't in this short list, it probably means that:

    A. I don't think it is exciting
    B. I don't really like it (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc)
    C. I don't know about it

    There's a lot to be excited about this year, so let's get excited!

  • Introduction to Linux

    This is a basic introduction to Linux. It answers two questions: what is GNU/Linux? And what it can offer its users? See the advantages for yourself.

    And if you like, Subscribe! :)

    A few key features I forgot to mention in the video:

    1. GNU/Linux operating systems are MUCH less susceptible to viruses -- HUGE plus! You don't have to pay annually for any antivirus software or worry about your PC data being compromised in ways that Windows is vulnerable.

    2. GNU/Linux operating systems use less system resources than Windows, allowing most machines to run much faster with GNU/Linux installed. Much. Faster.

    TRY IT! - For those looking to switch to Linux from Windows or give it a try without installing it on your machine. Ubuntu is Free Your Mind's primary GNU/Linux distribution of choice. You can download and learn about this brilliant OS at http://ubuntu.com/desktop.

  • Nitrux OS 1.0.15 Review – Absolutely gorgeous looking Linux OS

    Nitrux OS comes with Nomad Desktop on KDE Plasma 5, and is based on Ubuntu 18.10. However, the preference is to use AppImage files instead of Deb packages.

    Nitrux have included their own unique Nomad Software Center for installing AppImage applications, and Nomad Firewall manager.
    Kvantum Manager has been preinstalled to further tweak the styling of KDE apps
