Linux Journal awards 2013

Hi there again. As you may already saw, LinuxJournal Readers’ Choice Awards 2013 were announced last week. The awards could be seen here. So let’s make a quick review over the awards. What were the expected ones from me, what is the readers’ choice and in the comments you can as well tell me which is your choice of course. Let’s go!

The first award was for Best Linux distribution. Nothing so unexpected here. Ubuntu won, as everyone has predicted. What is really surprising here is the third position of Arch Linux! And Arch is before Mint! That was the only big surprise in this category. The other ones are pretty much expected. The things are a little bit different with the second award where Debian is the best distro for netbooks. And when Debian is really a good choice because of the support of so many hardware components, Arch is again in top 3 and this time on the second position! Ubuntu is third before all its derivates like Xubuntu or Lubuntu. So no any big surprises here except again the good position of Arch. Then the awards go a little bit mobile – Best mobile Linux operating system, Best Linux smartphone manufacturer and Best Linux Tablet. The awards go here for Android, Samsung – as the biggest manufacturer using Android and both Nexus tablets. Continue reading

Finally first post!

Hi there. The first post in this blog will not be technical, connected with Open Source Software, Linux, computers, programming etc. It will be more like what is this blog all about? What does this FireTuX thing means and so on. So, what is this blog about? As you may already noticed, it is about Open things – software, hardware, Linux, as well as things which are connected with Linux and may not be “open” like Android and Kindle, of course about Firefox too. I will try to make a blog with How-to-s, books and apps reviews, application top charts and things which are interesting for me and I want to share with you. Interesting news from the IT world, programming tutorials and many more will be written here too.

And now the question – what is FireTuX? Yes, this is a hybrid between Tux (the famous Linux mascot) and Firefox (the popular (best) web browser). And actually why Linux and Mozilla’s browser? Elementary, my dear Watson, those are the things which you will find mostly here or at least posts connected with these two topics are going to be my main subjects.

So, enjoy reading, more posts are coming in the following days, weeks, months and hopefully years. Continue reading
