Paldo melds source-based and binary in one distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Paldo Linux is a cross between a source-based and binary distribution. It
| installs as a binary system to provide a quick and easy desktop. Once it's
| running, users can either build packages from source as they would with
| Gentoo, or install binary packages, as is common with Debian, openSUSE, or
| Mandriva. Paldo's main features are an easy hard drive installer, GNOME
| desktop environment, and Upkg package management system. Stable version 1.12
| was released last month. I found it to be one of the more interesting and
| promising distros to come along in a long time.

Frugalware 0.7 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Frugalware has a mission, and a really good mission. It works just great out
| of the box. There are a few hick-ups (like the installer bug and some minor
| crashes) but Frugalware is very well on track. It looks awesome, maybe a
| trend-setter in look-and-feel for linux. This is a distribution to look for
| in coming time.


Test Driving Paldo, the Upkg Driven Linux Distribution

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I kinda liked Paldo. It looks nice and clean, it runs smooth (even
| live). The installation was a total pleasure and the whole experience was
| pretty much a joy. However, after playing around more with Upkg, I’ve reached
| the conclusion it’s not the package manager I’ll choose to use on a daily
| basis. Yes, installing additional software is easy but as long as the package
| is already in the Paldo repository.

Paldo GNU/Linux 1.2: Yet Another Generic Distro

| If you've never heard of Paldo, you need to check DistroWatch more. This
| completely new hybrid distribution (source *and* binary backage management)
| has started to get some major attention, and one site even went so far as to
| call it "this year's Sabayon". *

Interview with a Linux Titan

| My interview with Jurg Billeter, or juergbi on IRC, took place on a cold
| November morning, the day before the release of Paldo 1.12. If you have not
| heard of Paldo, you are missing out on one of the most intuitive "just work"
| distros out there. It's stable, fast, comes in x86 and x86_64 flavours, uses
| it's own package manager called upkg and can be used as a live CD or
| installed onto your HD. * * *

| I was really curious to try the new Frugalware 0.6 (Terminus), to
| see what's new. I downloaded the small netinstall ISO (35 MB), and
| it really worked.

Review: Frugalware 0.5 (Siwenna)

,----[ Summary ]
| Frugalware is a good option for intermediate and advanced
| users. It's not as good for the newcomers since there are
| not as many graphical wizards as found in openSUSE or
| Mandriva. On the other hand, the system is fast and simple,
| offers a great package manager, large software repository
| and decent multimedia support. What I missed the most is a
| local community (not existent, yet) of the distribution and
| a bit more well-thought packages (e.g. more modular
| approach to packaging KDE and other large apps). All in
| all, Frugalware is a very nice distro and it is really a
| fine choice for power user?s desktop.
