LinuxReviews is a wiki with reviews of primarily free as in freedom software programs, apps and distributions. You can find and share reviews of free software, proprietary software that runs on free operating systems, computer hardware and korean pop music. You can also read or share experiences with the GNU World Order and conspire on how to user it in. All we need is the right major proprietary software exploit causing the right major crisis and the nations will be forced to accept the GNU World Order.

Desktop Reviews

"I used to be upset when gnome developers decided it was "too complicated" for the user to remap some mouse buttons. In gnome3, the developers have apparently decided that it's "too complicated" to actually do real work on your desktop, and have decided to make it really annoying to do."

-Linus Torvalds on GNOME 3.

HOT TIP: Try ktouch if you do not know how to type using the touch-system. Learning the touch-system will let you type a whole lot faster. It's worth it.

GNU/Linux distributions

  • Gentoo Just install Gentoo
  • Ubuntu Easy to use n00b distribution. If you're a n00b then Ubuntu is probably the best choice for you. You should obviously install gentoo anyway.
  • Linux Mint This is a dumbed down fork of Ubuntu. If you own any Apple products then this is probably for you.
  • Arch Linux Gentoo-like distribution. Breaks your computer all the time. If you want to spend more time maintaining than using your computer then this is for you.

Desktop Environments

  • XFCE is the obvious choice if you want a clean desktop with a sane window-manager. This desktop lets you focus on the tasks you want to do. "It just works.". Hordes of GNOME users switched to XFCE when GNOME 3 came about.
  • Fluxbox is another great chioce.
  • KDE may be used if you spend ages configuring it.
  • GNOME 3 is a big joke by developers who think a cellphone-like OS has a place on a desktop computer

Korean pop music

  • Dreamcatcher is a very talented group with catchy rock songs.
