gOS 3.1 Gadgets OS Review
“Wolvix Linux is a distribution that has a lot of potential but it really needs an easy to use install routine before it can be considered a serious desktop Linux competitor. I liked the range of apps included with it and I also liked the Xfce desktop environment. Wolvix has it’s own minimalistic but pleasing visual aesthetic as well.
Right now though I have to recommend this distribution to Linux tinkerers and more experienced users. Newbies to Linux are welcome to download it and run it as a Live CD but it’s probably not worth the bother of trying to install it on the desktop. Newbies would be much better off with gOS, Ubuntu, Linux Mint or any of the other easy to install distributions.
That’s a shame though as Wolvix does a better job than some other distros at bundling useful software. I’d like to see more work put into polishing this distribution up and making it very easy to install. It’s a shame to see it sort of languish off to the side while other distributions get more use and attention.”
Sabayon Linux 4.1 Review
“When I first found Sabayon Linux on distrowatch I thought it had a very weird name. I hadn’t used it before so I was expecting a crappy distribution that somebody had thrown together with little in the way of real value. Well I was quite wrong and pleasantly surprised to find a solid and elegant Gentoo-based Linux distribution that works well on the desktop.
I remember screwing around with Gentoo ages ago and writing it off as being more of a pain in the ass than it was worth for a desktop distribution. But Sabayon Linux certainly changes my perception about Gentoo and seems to have become the “Gentoo for the Masses” distribution.
Give it a download and check it out. I think it definitely deserves a place beside Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint, and some of the other better known desktop distributions.”
Linux Mint 6 Felicia Review
“I like Linux Mint a lot. In some ways it’s what I wish Ubuntu itself had been. If I had to choose between the two of them, I would pick Linux Mint because it’s Ubuntu but better. While I noted a few things that could be improved, Linux Mint is definitely worth a download.
I really like the look and feel of Linux Mint. The artwork and the overall aesthetics of this distribution are very easy on the eyes. In an odd way it reminds me of Mac OS X without all the overbearing Apple glitter or the Apple tax. It’s slick.
And don’t just run it in Live CD mode either. Give it an install on your system. If I were in the market for an alternative to Windows, Linux Mint would definitely be at the top of my list. I still hear some people say “Linux still isn’t ready for the desktop” and stuff like that sometimes.
Well these people clearly haven’t used Linux Mint.”
