That's the plan!

Well, the end of this semester will mark the end of an extremely busy year that kept me away from this blog.  So, I wrote this quick post to remind me to come back once the craziness has subsided.

As soon as I get some time for myself, I plan to:

1.  Read-- and write some articles!

2.  Watch some Asian films or TV programs

3.  Try out some Linux distros.  The priority list includes Pardus Debian, Pardus Anka, Moondrake (unnamed loser or whatever Mandriva 2012 gets to be called), Parsix (the return of Gloria, hahaha), MiniNo,and Mint "Nadia"-- I lost count of the version already!

4.  Migrate my desktop from Mandriva 2010.2 to ... I haven't decided yet.  It is going to be wise to decide on an OS BEFORE migrating :P
One thing I know for sure, it won't be Windows 8 ;-)

Although I tried to see the second alpha of Mandriva, success has eluded me so far.  I managed to get it installed on a 64b VM, but  I could not see much of it without an X server.  It's too bad I presently do not have real hardware to test the distro.

I already tried the second alpha of Mageia 3 and it's looking good.  Sadly, I couldn't post anything about it because of... yes, lack of time thanks to the reports I have to prepare for the end of the semester.

But Megatotoro and I will try another experiment involving free software during the International Congress at the university where we work.  That might be a little daring, but it will be interesting.

Let's see how everything goes.

  1. Hopefully, you will come back to life when the semester is over.

    Well, the same goes for me!

  2. Yes, I'm looking forward to it. We'll get to start new crazy projects.

  3. This is exactly how I've been feeling too. This semester has been ridiculous, but it is coming to its tail end. Good luck!

    1. PV,

      Good luck to you, too. Hopefully, you'll manage to get some time to review Mint "Nadia" when it is released. I find your reviews useful.


It's the Ides of August!
