I was experimenting a bit lately and installed new distro’es – OK, let’s say “nearly new” 😉

1. First is Fluxbuntu – as Linux fans already know it it is a derivative of Ubuntu. BUT – as I found out – MUCH QUICKER, LIGHTER and – much easier to install than the “big U/K/Xubuntu brothers and sisters”. It was the first Ubuntu I managed to install with graphical installer…Taking into account that Fluxbuntu is under heavy development and the version installed by me is pre-released one I think it will be a GREAT DISTRO!

2. Second one is the newest Zenwalk 4.0 – and what can I say? I tried Zenwalk few times in the past – beginning from version 2.8 – this time the distro seems to work even FASTER! The nicest thing here is that EVERYTHING is working out of the box – at least for the kind of user like me – rather average one ;). What I also like a lot about especially this version of Zenwalk is THE LOOK and FEEL of it – fantastic graphic work. What’s more – the look does not affect the efficiency – computer is running as smooth with and without “special” effects 🙂 (built-in composite in XFCE and Fluxbox) and – as the fan of Fluxbox – I immediately installed it – nice thing here is that Fluxbox is the newest, pre-released version – much better than the older one 😉 Shortly speaking from now on my distro’es of choice are Zenwalk and Fluxbox – both installed side by side on the separate partitions of my desktop and laptop. And – NO! – I am not a geek…LOL…not at all! I am very average computer user “playing” with Linux distro’es for a 1/2 year now – you see – it’s possible! Thanks to the developers of such Linux distro’es as Fluxbox and Zenwalk🙂

Back to the subject of the entry – I decided today to “create” another blog – this time devoted fully to “tami’s adventures in Linux Land” in other words – to small howto’es and tips for persons as me – not very “tech-savvy” but wanting their computers to work without the glitch to be able to use them!

So – here it is! 😉

Many kind and friendly greetings to all from,
