Test Kogaion

We are looking for installers of Kogaion, last OS produced by Romanian team of developers, so … I installed one myself.
I installed Kogaion on my laptop  Dell Latitude D630.
I downloaded the image here: http://bpr.bluepink.ro/~rogentos/iso/kogaion/.
Using  RUFUS  on Windows I have “burned” a USB stick to start an installation using the downloaded ISO image.
More about the team and other issues can be found on the site http://rogentos.ro/

For now … tests tests and findings.

I am expecting you to try this too !

Frostwire

Windows equivalent: Limewire

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client, first released in September, 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but developers added more features, such as BitTorrent support. In version 5, Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and now FrostWire only uses the BitTorrent network. Development of the program has been active since the program was first released in September 2004.

Orange Boston – Updated to Android 2.2.1 and rooted

Some time ago I came into possession of a smartphone, cheaper it is true, but it does its job. The thing that attracted me to it it’s Android, at that time was version 1.6, and as a Linux user I had some pleasure to do some tests with this acquisition.

I did the upgrade according to the specifications and I’ve had no problem.

For what is written up here is the official version of the recommended update that will change your phone from Orange. In time, however, something happened in that operating system: application “Market”  started to make updates to more applications than I’ve ever had in the phone, and not actually made those updates  in software and I always had to do updates to more than 1,000 applications that require updates to the extent that I had a maximum of 100 applications from all …
