SUSE studio is a web front-end to customize and build your own personal distribution in as many ways you could possibly think off. There are other similar services and applications that helps you make custom distribution but none of them are as extensive in customization options as SUSEstudio or as easy.
When you login to your account you are given six template to choose from:
After you select a standard template you can give it a name and choose to add or remove any packages you want to. When you customize packages you get real-time updates on the size of the ISO and number of packages you are selecting out of the hundreds of packages that are available for you to choose from.
Hey guys, this is a weekly series we are trying out. Nixie was kind enough to let us publish one of her old video here and she will make more videos in the coming weeks for LH. Nixie is an avid female gamer and a Linux user (a rare combination!), you can check out her blog or follow her on twitter.
The recent Tomtom vs. Microsoft drama just took a u-turn and they have decided that enough is enough and its time to buy Microsoft. With an employee count of just under 90,000 – Microsoft have offices in more than 100 countries all over the world; in comparison Tomtom has 3500 employees in 2 countries.
Its still unclear how Tomtom can afford to buy Microsoft, but it is estimated that Tomtom CEO Harold Goddijin might need to sell his soul to the highest bidder the same way Novell achieved it not too long ago.
There is no official word out from the Microsoft camp yet, but Richard Stallman looked very giddy after hearing this news and he mentioned to his closest friends by email that he will name it GNU/Microsoft if TomTom decides to open up the source.
Inkscape is a great open source alternative for commercial vector editor like Illustrator the same way Gimp is an alternative for Photoshop and Blender is for Maya. Despite being a fairly advanced vector graphic editor Inkscape doesn’t get as much attention and coverage like other similar open source projects.
As it is the case with most open source projects Inkscape started as a fork of another vector editor Sodipodi (not actively developed anymore). Since the fork, Inkscape got a redesigned UI, ported to C++, supports SVG and complex scripting – a feature lacking in most commercial alternatives.
As I have been playing around with Inkscape for the last few weeks in an attempt to improve my graphics skills I have come across some amazing tutorials that have helped me greatly. I hope these tutorials will help you as much as they helped me improve.
