Greetings, folks. I came here via Aussie Blaine Packer's Infinitely Galactic
I have experimented with quite a few Linux distros and have a non-commercial web page of pre-packaged sets of YUMI-compatible USB multiboot collections
available via bittorrent. I select distros with an emphasis on small sizes, speed, and unique features. I also try to find distros that might be an easy transition for Windows users.
I've gotten behind a bit on adding new collections but with Ubuntu 14.04 and derivatives due soon I should have some new sets within a month or so. I would post a link to the page but as a new member, I will only post if requested. (You can always Google my username + multiboot + collections.)
For various reasons, in my house, we mostly use Windows but I can always dual-boot into a highly customized Zorin 7.1 lite
. Personally I prefer Openbox and KDE but I'll be taking a look at newer XFCE distros. I am not a gamer and I have no need for Compiz.
A few smaller distros that I like, particularly on USB, are Porteus, Puppy, and OpenElec's XBMC
. Somewhat larger, Manjaro
is coming along nicely. I only wish there was an easy way for Manjaro to package "persistence
" on USB like there is with Ubuntu and its derivatives.
My latest hobby web project is a single screen click-to-play radio jukebox
of over 240 internet radio stations. While Chrome, Firefox, Midori, and Web/Epiphany work fine with the site, several other Linux browsers have still not implemented HTML5 audio controls correctly: Konqueror, Opera, SeaMonkey, and others. (Again, link on request.)
BTW, I was unable to upload an avatar
successfully even though I tried various size and file formats:
