A look into Caldera Open Linux… really nice memories.

One of my favorite distros for the time I started to use Linux.

My very first (usable) bistro was Corel Linux but when I got Caldera Linux in one of those PC-Magazine CDs I really love it. Unfortunately it was a demo CD so after a while I have to format the PC and reinstall to continue using it.

At that time I was neither a fan of KDE or Gnome (which was in its very early stages). KDE was more developed though, and that’s why most distros have it as the default desktop environment.

It was until I’ve got a Mandrake 7.2 (I think it came in Todo Linux Magazine) that I started to use GNOME, I think it was around 2000. read more

iPhone 10 ditches finger print to unlock phone (Touch ID) and replaces it with Face unlock… then, there is facial unlock in Pixel phones!!.

iPhone 10 presents a notch display.. every new phone comes with a notch display!. read more
