Lubuntu Vs. Xubuntu

Over the years, Lubuntu and Xubuntu have been two popular flavors that have provided an alternative to a lot of folks who have preferred something other than vanilla Ubuntu with the Unity desktop. Lubuntu and Xubuntu have been the choice of Linux enthusiasts and users who would rather have a lean or lightweight Linux distro or one that will provide the best performance on an old desktop or laptop. But how do these two distros compare, which one would I recommend and why? Let’s read along as I weigh the strengths and weaknesses of these two awesome Ubuntu flavors.

Top 10 Linux distros for developers in 2017

Meet the distros that are coder-friendly

More popular versions of Linux such as Ubuntu focus on enhancing the user experience by automatically updating packages and providing flashy, resource-heavy GUIs.

While user-friendly distributions (distros) certainly have their place, in this guide, we've tried to get back to the glory days when developers would customise their Linux build. These Linux distros allow you to fine-tune your development environment so whether you're a veteran programmer or relative newcomer, you can get on with your coding.

In short, whatever your programming preferences, you’ll find a distro to suit your needs in this

elementary OS Loki 0.4.1 Linux distro now available for download

Despite the death of Unity, there is still no shortage of desktop environments for Ubuntu. In fact, there are some Linux-based operating systems that exist mostly to provide an arguably better environment and experience. Two good examples of this are Linux Mint and elementary OS. While these distros are more than just Ubuntu with an alternative DE, the UI is largely the star of the show. While Mint caters to folks that have trouble moving beyond the interfaces of yesteryear, elementary instead focuses on a forward-looking experience.

Today, elementary OS Loki -- the latest version of the operating system -- reaches a new milestone. Release 0.4.1 adds many new features, including an updated 4.8 kernel, improved

What happened at Canonical

A tale of town halls, tears, IPOs and brutal lay-offs

We ask the person sitting across the table from us what it’s like to work at Canonical and they stare at their drink for a while contemplating the question: “Most companies purely want to make money,” says the Canonical employee, whom we’ll call ‘DeepC’ as they want to remain anonymous. “Whereas I feel, in Canonical it’s been almost like… ‘play thing’ is the wrong word, but it’s kind of like a sandbox of ideas.”

The exciting and sometimes frustrating Canonical sandbox has lost a lot of its buckets and spades in the last month. The company that financially backs the

Ubuntu 17.04 review: Don’t call it abandonware, per se

Technically, Ubuntu 17.10 is coming—but how much development will go into a dead desktop?

Last month, it finally happened. Six years after its tumultuous switch from GNOME 2 to the homegrown Unity desktop, Canonical announced it was abandoning work on Unity. Going forward, the company will switch the default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME beginning with next year's 18.04

För många anteckningar i Zotero: ett litet knep

Jag arbetar mycket i referenshanteraren Zotero. Förutom referenshanterare har det blivit mitt viktigaste anteckningsprogram. Man kan anteckna och bifoga filer till varje huvudpost. Huvudposterna är böcker, artiklar eller dokument man läst som forskare. Allt är sökbart och går att bokmärka på olika sätt. Det är smidigare att använda Zotero än ett fristående anteckningsprogram.

Jag upptäckte att jag gått för långt. Min referenslista har blivit svårläst och mycket lång att rulla igenom på grund av att massor med poster har underposter.

Det blir med åren många, många anteckningar i Zotero… Det är de gula underposterna. Anteckningarna innehåller citat, tankar och avskrifter av litteratur och dokument. Referenslistan har blivit oöverskådlig och svårnavigerad

Givetvis går det att stänga anteckningarna en och en manuellt. Det tar tid om man som jag har flera tusen poster.

Som tur är finns det en genväg – tangenten stänger alla underposter och + öppnar dem.

Nu är mina anteckningar dolda och referenslistan är mer överblickbar!

flattr this!
