Linux SIG – September 16, 2013
We had a lively August meeting and debugged Carl’s hardware to finally get it booting to a live DVD. At the August FOSS-SIG meeting we installed Peppermint Linux4 and all the latest updates. Carl seemed pleased with the results.
CrunchBang boots very fast and uses the lightweight OpenBox drivers. Averill may like Elementary OS since it attempts to duplicate some OS10 screens. Both systems should work well with legacy hardware.
September Linux / FOSS links we discussed:
- CrunchBang – Beautiful Minimalism
- Elementary OS Review
We’re looking at both systems tonight but its nice to see what others think about them.
