| source community," he said, stressing that merely saying that one is a user

Review: Bayanihan Linux 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Bayanihan Linux 4 is a pretty good, simple, distribution. It is
| easy to install and manage and it gets you going quickly right out of
| the box. That being said it doesn?t have all the latest gizmos and eye
| candy of the current wave of Linux distributions. It also doesn't have
| a huge package repository, but you can probably add some more.
|
| It?s not bad for a government sponsored distribution and if it gets
| more people to switch to Linux, that?s a good thing. Power users will
| want more than Bayanihan provides, but the average computer user will
| find all they need in Bayanihan.
