Day 1061: Bayanihan Linux 5 Screenshots

Here's my way of promoting Bayanihan Linux to the Filipino people as well as the International Community. Yes, folks, we Filipinos have our own Linux distribution as well.

Right of the bat, I'm going to admit that I'm not really that well versed in evaluating a Linux distribution. I simply like it or not.

At the most, I can give it a score of 10 (highest) or 1 (lowest) without any explanation or justification for giving such a score. So if you really want an in-depth analysis, I suggest that you try it out for yourself to see. 

This Linux distribution is based on Debian, runs KDE 3.5 has the easiest installation routine I've ever encountered ever and has a pretty awesome wallpaper.

Since I am running Bayanihan Linux 5 on Virtualbox OSE I can't really test its actual performance. If there's such a thing as a Virtual Performance then I'll disclose that for what it's worth.

Okay, so here we go:


INSTALLATION

1. Booting the Virtual Linux Distribution from the Virtual CDROM in the Virtual Machine Installed in a Virtual Drive.

Yes, I am beginning to hate the word Virtual too.


I actually installed this 5+ times already so I have tried both Graphical and Text Mode install. The install process is very extremely newbie friendly. I literally installed by just pressing the Enter key again and again and again like a drunk rabbit.

The more advanced crowd would probably say that it's too simple and that the installation process actually hides more than it should. But nevertheless, these things could be tweaked later on.

Basically there are two modes shown above: the Graphical Mode and the Text Mode. Like I said, it's so easy even a drunk rabbit which can press the Enter key repeatedly can install it.


Seriously, it's really that easy. I would suggest the Text Mode when you are going to install this since there is no significant difference between the two except the additional usage of resources. Of course I could be wrong, but hey I'm a practical guy. To me they're the same banana.




POST INSTALLATION

First Boot

I can't really say since this installation is performed on a Virtual Machine. But speaking from my experience, it's simply slow.

How slow? After 5 minutes I got a sandwich, spread some peanut butter, toasted it, made myself coffee, tasted the coffee, added sugar, tasted coffee again, munched the sandwich and it's still not done.

Now before you rage against me - I'm going to say this again - this is on a Virtual Machine with an allocation of 256 MB RAM running on my Celeron 2.66 with 750+ MB RAM on Ubuntu 9.04 (Host) and Gnome.

Good work on making government logos look "ok". It makes me feel that I'm actually working there and this is my work PC.

Fun.



The wallpaper is very nice and original. Very very very well done.

I couldn't change the screen resolution in Virtualbox so I moved the panel on top.
