Openlinux 13.07 kde 64 bit review :Take the New kde 4.11 to ride with efficient , fast spin and solid performance .

Today I was not so much interested to review the openlinux 13.07 kde completely  as just want to  peep about what actually kde 4.11 is all about ,so just made a  live usb  of the iso which I downloaded from their openlinux site which is around more than 1.5 gb .

Truly speaking I was not actually impressed what openlinux kde came up with their first kde spin of ubuntu ie just before 13.07 version as when I used just  felt that it was just another kubuntu remastered only icons changed up and brand but all applications were like simply kubuntu 12.04 LTS .

But my impression changed with it after using openlinux 13.o7 version they have now added some stuffy software so their distro can be called as good alternative to kubuntu . when I actually fired my laptop with it and just begin to install the openlinux and the installation is same as about  another ubuntu clan .so not to tell more about the famous kubuntu installer you can just look at kubuntu or Netrunner os which I just reviewed earlier for detailed installation process .Its just same as age old kubuntu you are asked things like your language preferences , keyboard preferences ,time-zone and other things like  user Id and root password and your home folder encryption and login automatically by user or by password all this various boxy-stuff you have to make up .For me the installation took around 10 minutes along with third party codecs .

For installer procedure head on to Netrunner review page .

One thing now I dont like that of kubuntu installer is that its default to the country origin , really considered as a stupid stuff let the installer man choose where and what actually he want to put the location where he/she  resides that would be more professional .Also the slides show of installation procedure like kubuntu was cut offed only plain installer for openlinux may be they have not developed slides according to their brand is missing , what effect does it have on public its hardly to tell .

Why Linux Desktop computing has failed to miss the "Doorbells Ringing " of everyday computing ?

Linux computing has reached  a  far-ahead in terms of technology , If you see the top Supercomputers list  then you will find that about 99 percent of supercomputers are based on Linux .Similarly most of the Military are now using linux as their main platforms for computing as it provides and enhanced security .

Look at this article from it can be seen that Linux is everywhere ,



But why the hell is that Linux desktop is not shining like a star on Desktop front even having more than 20 years of active development and early arrival , Linux has really become awesome and  the  dominant force behind the internet servers and other related stuffs ,but in terms of  Desktop user still lot of misguidance persist .

In terms of security ,companies spending lots of money on their Server sites , proxy and Mail gate-way etc also a misconception persist as its Open-source can be used as backdoor for hacking and other problem is that as some companies actually shifted to Linux system but they were actually short of technical expertise needed to maintain the systems in third world countries .

Certified Hardware: The  biggest challenge Linux community is facing about adoption of certified hardware from hardware vendors is too slow like a snail race .Also an example of vendor 'Dell" Selling Linux laptop pre-installed , they dont market  or advertise the consumers that some brands like Inspiron /Xps comes with pre-installed with Ubuntu systems .When user want to buy a system in Dos they will be actually using some form of windows os on their system later but when they start their system with a visually different OS that they had never seen or used .  So most user either return their system back to companies otherwise call someone and install windows or some form of pirated system over it .When users enquire about the system the response we get "We dont guarantee you that if you used ubuntu on your system it will work fine , all you have to search on ubuntu related issues on web for queries , Dell recommends using Windows ." So you can just see even with hardware vendors selling open source on their system how they do it .
