GPU-accelerated VMs on Proxmox, XCP-ng? Here’s what you need to know – The Register

Hands on Broadcom's acquisition of VMware has sent many scrambling for alternatives. Two of the biggest beneficiaries of Broadcom's price hikes, at least on the free and open source side of things, have been the Proxmox VE and XCP-ng hypervisors. At the same time, interest in enterprise AI has taken off in earnest. With so many making the switch to these FOSS-friendly virtualization platforms, we figured at least some of you might be interested in passing a GPU or two through to your VMs to experiment with local AI workloads. In this tutorial, we'll be looking at what it takes…

MakuluLinux Aero Is a Linux Distro with the Look and Feel of Windows Aero – Softpedia News

MakuluLinux Aero, a Linux distribution based on the Debian testing branch that uses Cinnamon and some customization that make it look like a Windows OS, has been released. There are quite a few operating systems out there trying to emulate the look and feel of Windows OSes. This trend has increased in the past few years, and it seems to be more powerful than ever. Users could customize their Linux distros in the past with themes and icons to achieve the same kind of result, but now we see that entire distros are aimed at users who want to have…

New MakuluLinux Brings ‘Shifting’ Innovations to Desktop Design – LinuxInsider

MakuluLinux Shift is one solution to standardizing the Linux desktop. From a marketing standpoint, two big impediments block a more widespread adoption of the Linux operating system for business and consumer desktop use. One is easily selecting a desktop environment from among varied options. The second is wading through the myriad of independently developed Linux distributions. These two barriers are both a blessing and a curse of open-source desktop computing. MakuluLinux offers a simplified solution to both. MakuluLinux, around since 2013, does not have the name recognition of more popular desktop distributions. But do not overlook a gem that gets…

antiX Linux Doesn’t Fool Around – LinuxInsider

antiX Linux Doesn’t Fool Around – LinuxInsider

The antiX distro is both something old and something new. It is a handy and innovative approach to keeping aging computers fast and active. It is also an energy infuser for new computers. I started playing around with antiX when looking for something different to keep some older computers out of the trash heap. antiX is a fast, lightweight distro that is easy to install. It is based on Debian Testing for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. It uses Fluxbox and IceWN for the desktop environment. It worked well but was not as current as I preferred. Its last release was…

AntiX Linux: Not Pretty but Highly Functional | Review – LinuxInsider

AntiX Linux: Not Pretty but Highly Functional | Review – LinuxInsider

The antiX distro offers a solid operating system that many other Linux communities fail to deliver. It is unassuming but reliable and focuses on performance rather than prettiness. That last element goes a long way to giving users distraction-free computing power. That does not mean antiX is not visually appealing. This distro has a no-nonsense appearance. Instead of lighting up the background and displaying decorative themes, it provides a plain, mostly dark view that lets you concentrate on the computing tasks at hand. Within this bland screen setting is an array of outstanding Linux applications and computing tools. Another great…

MakuluLinux Shifts Designs for a Better Linux Experience | Review – TechNewsWorld

In September 2020 Jacque Montague Raymer, developer and creator of the MakuluLinux family of distributions, released a new distro inspired by a project he shelved several years ago. On Aug. 10 of this year, he released an upgrade that puts an expanded “Shift Distro” into revolutionizing the Linux distribution’s user interface. MakuluLinux Shift is a well-designed Linux distro that blends several mainstream design concepts with performance features not found elsewhere. One of Shift’s most unique features — which Raymer greatly expanded in the 2021-08-10 version — is the ability to modify major design elements effortlessly. Hence, its name. A few…
