So What's the Real Problem in Desktop Linux?

running linux application softwareIt's a peculiar world of computing where some say Linux is ready to replace Windows on the Desktop. They consider Linux is better than Windows by every possible way. Some others (including many Linux enthusiasts) are in the opinion that Linux is still not ready for mass consumption. So, what's holding the Tux back?

Hardware? Not a big problem anymore. With every release of kernel, the latest drivers find a place in the linux pool. It's only a matter of time. If your device is not supported by a current release, it will most probably be supported by the next.

Usability? I don't think so. Both Gnome 2.26 and KDE 3.5.10 (the most stable, KDE4 still needs some time in oven) desktop environments are able to give M$ a run for its money. Both are beautiful and usable. Compiz beats M$ Aero effects. What's more Linux Desktop Environments are frugal in resource consumption if you compare them with Windows Vista.

Performance? Not at all. Modern Linux kernel is very fast and stable. Modern Linux filesystem is also very versatile. If you doubt try copying GBs of data in a Linux system and do the same in a Windows System (with similar hardware configuration). You will see Linux is definitely faster. Of course, there are so many other speed tests.

What's left then? Application software?

Yes. Linux lags behind application software. All the Mac software works well in Mac. Same is true for Windows. In course of time applications in Windows (and Mac) get added features and enhancements. But in case of Linux application software, though there has more thrust in new features, stability has been often overlooked.

Here is an example of Brasero (2.26.1-1mdv2009.1). It is supposed to be a better replacement of nautilus-burner in gnome. It has many features and it's fast. I bought this feeling while using a previous version (on PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Gnome Remaster). But the version 2.26.1 on Mandy is total disaster. It took forever to burn a dvd. Pathetically, it resulted in a bad burn. At last I used growisofs tool to burn using the correct options.

Another pathetic example is that of Evince 2.26.1 (that came with mandriva 2009.1). It always renders pages very slow like a snail. What's worse is that it scorches the cpu all the while.

There are thousand other such applications......

If you are using application software in Linux you don't know whether the next version will really work flawlessly on your system. In addition to it, the other critical problem is that a same version of application software may behave differently across various Linux distributions depending on how the same is packaged and how the dependencies are handled.

Are You Moving to KDE4?

kde4 logoI have tried KDE4 spins by dozens of distros including those from biggies like Fedora, OpenSuse, Kubuntu and Mandriva, but found varying degree of annoyance and/or lack of completeness across all of them. So what? I am waiting for Tex and/or Warren to bake KDE4 for me. I am sure KDE4 will be ready for mass consumption when it makes way into PCLinuxOS or Mepis.

May be it will happen after KDE4 reaches big increments like 4.5 or above, may be it will ship in mepis 10, or may be after 1 year in PCLinuxOS. Till then happy computing with good old KDE3.

Do you think the same? If so, drop a line.

Puppy Linux 4.2.1 is not a Puppy, but a Poppa to Many!

Puppy Linux 4.2.1
Puppy has long been the posterboy for all those who needed a light distribution. However, I never really tried it before. I was happy in the crowd of biggies like Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, Mepis and Ubuntu. This morning I downloaded Puppy Linux 4.2.1 (puppy-4.2.1-k2.6.25.16-seamonkey.iso, the incremental .1 is a bugfix) just like that. And Lo! After popping it on my notebook, it a sort of stunned me for its beauty, simplicity, speed, usability, wealth of applications, and overall integration of the whole.

It is an independent distribution on diet by JWM and a careful selection of applications for almost any task you do on your home desktop.

It has around 170 odd ones including a word processor (Abiword), spreadsheet program (Gnumeric), batch renamer, download manager, torrent client, IM client, media player, vector and rastor graphics program, ftp client, archiver, copy disk tool, cd/dvd/brd burner, iso image editor, audio ripper, sticky note utility... and a lot lot more that it seemed more comprehensive than the complete Fedora 10 DVD. You name it, and it has a slimmed down version of it. All of them packed in just 100MB. God! Is it a miracle?

The most astounding part of this tiny distro is that all the tools, applications and utilities it has work flawlessly. No wonder, at #8 on the distrowatch ranking it is outdoing many heavyweights.

As for the beauty, Puppy does the best JWM. It is sure to allure you with a grey color theme and shiny orange icons.

It seems "Puppy is actually a Poppa" (Daddy). It has it all. It is a must for everybody, especially for those who want to breath new life into their rather old Desktops/Notebooks.

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Gnome, a Perfect Desktop Linux

Though I was happy with the Gnome One CD I could not resist trying the latest Mandriva 2009.1 KDE One CD. After two days I formatted my hdd and installed the Gnome One CD.

May be I am not that smart enough to use KDE 4.2. May be KDE 4.2 is still not as complete as KDE 3.5.10. I will try Mandy KDE versions when it will ship with KDE 4.5 or later.

Now that I installed the Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Gnome One again, I customized for my home desktop. I was surprised how the Mandy people have improved the whole distribution. Mandy's touch of beauty to Gnome Environment, Boot Optimization and System Responsiveness is simply surprising.

Best of all, Mandy installation has done a great job in removing unnecessary drivers. Here are some of the screenshots of my fully loaded Mandy 2009 Spring Gnome that prove that Mandriva 2009.1 Gnome desktop is a heavily optimized distribution for desktop computing.

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Services

Screenshot of list of services of my home desktop: 17 services in all.

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Resources

Freshly booted Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Gnome desktop takes just 116 MB

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Startup Programs

Just 6 applications are running on my Mandriva 2009.1 Desktop

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Packages

With the above list of applications it consumes only 2.2 GB of HDD space.

Hereunder is the list of packages that my Mandy 2009.1 Spring installation has.

Mandriva Linux 2009.1 (Spring) – Steps Ahead in Linux Desktop War

Mandriva 2009.1 Spring Desktop

My Last tryst with Mandriva was the Powerpack version of 2008. It was good but not great. PClinuxOS 2008 MiniME seemed to me a better choice in terms of stability, wireless configuration and usability.

I had tried Mandriva 2009. It was full of promises (though there were some showstoppers). When a few days back Mandriva released the latest version of its operating system, Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring, I could not stop myself from downloading it.

What's So Great About It?

1. It has that extra polish (trademark of Mandriva Spring Release).
2. It has Kernel 2.6.29 (with many new drivers and support for ext4).
3. It has option to remove unnecessary drivers after installation.
4. It dwarfs many Linux distros in terms of boot-speed and overall system responsiveness.
5. It has packaged many latest (yet stable) applications such as OO.o 3.0.1, Firefox 3.0.8, Gimp 2.6 and More.
6. It has professional looking theme and style.
7. It is a very stable release!

What's Not So Good?

Only one - package management. The default package management frontend gurpmi seems somewhat not so polished. I also tried other alternatives such as smart and easy urpmi. None are for me. I am dreaming of a day when Mandriva will have a better package management frontend that is as good or better than apt-get (synaptic).

Mandriva Benchmarks on My Notebook (Celeron M 1.73GHz, 1GB RAM)

Boot time (from Grub to full Gnome Desktop): 35 sec
Shutdown time: 9 sec
Memory footprint on freshly booted desktop: 110 MB (gnome desktop with only 19 services running)

Hardware Detection and Configuration

It readily detected and configured my X3100 graphics, Broadcom 4311 wlan card, webcam and external bluetooth dongle. Like always, Mandriva 2009.1 is great when it comes to hardware detection and configuration.

Conclusion

Once the leader of desktop linux, Mandriva is all set to acquire its old glory. 2009 Spring release is great in many ways. The more you use it, the more you will like it.
