  • LINUX MINT REVIEW: THE MOST POPULAR DESKTOP LINUX DISTRO!

    Hello Everyone! This video is a overview of the most popular linux distro which is Linux Mint.

    The Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu and was started in 2006 by Clement Lefebvre, the current Project leader. Through this long history, linux has achieved a lot. It has been the TOP RANKED DISTRO on Distrowatch since 2011.

    In this video we will check out the reason for Mint's immense popularity.

    One of the biggest reason is the mint's decision to develop a new DE when Ubuntu moved to unity. Mint developed Cinnamon and Mate for its users.

  • Zorin OS a Linux Operating System like Windows 7

    Today I'm showing you Zorin OS an open source Linux distribution which is freely available to download and a great alternative to Windows. This release of Linux is fairly similar to Windows 7 and is ideal for business customers. In this video I'll take you through a virtualised tour of Zorin OS to show just how good it is, you might even get to see my previously deleted "Riding the network" video too!

    I'm using Hyper-V to run this Operating System virtually.
    If you wish to use this OS please go to: http://zorinos.com/download.html

  • DEEPIN LINUX 15.8 - First Impressions with Deepin Desktop Environment

    As I continue my tour of different Linux desktop environments, I'm going to start playing with Deepin, or Deepin DE. Let's see how it works !

    Looking for great soundtracks for your video projects ?
    Get your first free track from Ritual Music : http://bit.ly/2ARRBHq
    Promo Code: WELCOMETORITUAL

    First experience
    Deepin greets you with a very simple desktop,, with just a dock at the bottom of the screen. You get the option to use "fashion mode", which is just a dock at the bottom, with some system indicators such as network or battery life, and system menus, or the "efficient mode", which resembles Windows, with a task bar, indicators on the right, and a "show desktop menu".

    The panel
    It hosts a launcher, which opens a GNOME like grid of all applications installed, a multitasking view shortcut, similar to what the elementary OS one does, spreading all windows for you to see, and showing virtual desktops, and then some application shortcuts.with the Deepin File Manager, Deepin Store, Deepin Music, Deepin Movie, Google CHrome, Control center, and "disk", which is a handy applet allowing you to see all available disks quickly. You can add app shortcuts just by dragging them to the panel, or by right clikcing its icon when the app is started, and selecting "dock".

    The desktop
    With Deepin, the desktop can store files, countrary to GNOME or elementary OS. With a right click, you get the option to create folders or documents, with handy templates already created for office documents, as well as accessing some settings, such as the corner settings, to select hot corner functionnality, from turning off the screen, opening the control center, showing all windows, opening the launcher, or simply showing the desktop.
    You can also get to the wallpaper settings through this context menu.

    Control center
    This is Deepin's implementation of the system settings. The first thing that you'll notice, is that it pops up from the right edge of the screen: it's not an application, with its own window, it's part notification center, and part control center, ressembling the Mac OS X equivalent, for notifications. It uses transparency and blur efficiently, and looks very good, although since it's monochrome, it isn't always easy to use muscle and visual memory to find what you're looking for. The settings are dispatched into neat categories, and you can just scroll from one category to another, which limits the number of clicks, but can be quite weird at first. I'll go into more detail about what is available in this control center, but it does look the part and is a new, innovative implementation of settings.

    Applications
    We'll go into more details in a separate video, but let's just say that Deepin likes to bring its own version of stuff. Almost everything, from the file manage,r to the music player, the video player, the application store, the terminal, text editor, calendar, image viewer, sound recorder, even the system monitor and the screenshot tool are custom Deepin applications. They all look quite consistent, with the same stark white theme, window controls on the right, and application menu left of the minimize button.

    Windows and desktops
    Deepin obviously uses application windows, with controls on the right, which look quite like the windows controls. It keeps the minimize, maximize, and close order, and adds an app menu, which lets you get to some quick options, such as the settings, or shortcuts to create a new window, or exit the application. All default Deepin apps also allow you to select a dark theme on a per-app basis, which persists after closing the window.. This is an awesome touch that I wish other distros would implement.

    The overview opens a complete view of all available windows, and virtual desktops, which you can rearrange by drag and drop, and customize with different wallpapers. The whole implementation is very straightforward and nicely animated.

    Performance was pretty good. Apps open quickly, the desktop reacts nicely, and all animations ran smooth as butter. Memory consumption seems to be around 1.2 to 1.4 Gb of RAM when Idle, which is high, but not terribly. CPU consumption was altogether very low as well.

    To conclude this first tour, I'm impressed with the attention to detail that went into Deepin. The desktop looks great and smooth, everything is nicely animated and uses vivid colors, and the basic features I need from a desktop environment are all very easy to find an comprehensible. Default apps seem nicely built, and apart from some translation hiccups here and there, everything was smooth and clean. With basic but easy to find customization options, the Deepin Desktop Experience is a welcoming one.

    I'll keep using Deepin for the next month or so, taking a tour of the applications, the system settings, the customization options, available software, and so on, so bear with me.

    Linux Mint and Elementary OS are two of the most popular Ubuntu-based Linux distros. They both are known for their respective homegrown desktop environments. Mint and Elementary have a huge fan following and are highly appreciated for their gorgeous desktops. They both might be based on Ubuntu, but the similarities end right there both these distros are miles apart from each other.

    So, how do they compare against each other? Which among them is the best? Which among them is more suitable FOR You? Linux Mint or Elementary OS. Let's find out.

    Elementary OS features the Pantheon desktop environment. Now pantheon desktop is clean, elegant and just so beautiful to look at. One can feel the resemblance to the MacOS desktop.
    Everything, from the indicators to the wallpapers look so neat. The Application launcher is minimal, spacious and has a convenient search. It has 2 layouts, one is the default one and the other a category wise arrangement of apps.

    All the apps integrate really smooth with the desktop theming. Looking at the overall setup, Elementary feels so organized and has a sense of calm to the desktop. And You'll just love the wallpaper pack.

    Linux Mint, on the other hand, is famous for its homegrown Cinnamon desktop. Cinnamon has a very huge fan following. And looking at it, it's quite clear why.
    Cinnamon desktop is highly intuitive, elegant and just so gorgeous to look at. The menu is organized and accessible. Unlike GNOME desktop, the menu does not cut the users workflow. Controlling your computer is really easy. Linux Mint's interface is quite amazing.

    Cinnamon is also highly customizable with a wide range of themes and additional widgets called spices. The effects and animations are there, but not so much that they distract you from your work. Linux Mint scores top points in the interface department.

  • Top 3 Best Desktop Linux Distros | 2019 Edition!

    Folks have been asking for this video for a long time, so here it is! Its my top 3 favorite desktop Linux distributions - the 2019 Edition!

    I want to clarify what I mean by "Desktop Linux Distribution" - basically any Linux distro that is specifically made for the "every man" Linux user. There are lots of Linux distros with specialized purposes, such as Kali Linux, but there are also distros that are tailored for developers or sysadmin work. Pop_OS, for example, is a fantastic distro, but I feel it is geared towards developers rather than every day desktop users.
