Going to school ? Get überstudent linux.

Apr 29

In my never ending quest to find interesting Linux Distributions I have stumbled upon this little gem called Uberstudent. A Ubuntu-Derivative targeted at the student or the educational professional. It takes me back to the days of College Linux, an obscure little distribution that got me started in running Linux back in 2003. ( It’s long dead now , I only found some vague mention online)

What I liked about College Linux was the apps it came with but also all the cool links. These days distro’s focus on the kernel and the graphical interface, but seldom look at the functionality they can offer to their target audience. Like college Linux, Ubuerstudent does just that. The graphical user interface and the included apps are good, but the web based links and services included in the start menu are a true treasure trove. As an educational (or knowledge junkie) distro , Uberstudent is top notch and worth to give it a try.  Find Uberstudent here.

Beyond Borat there is Bruno !

Nov 13

And then there was Borat. 

Ok , Since the Knightwise.com is on the 'loose' once again, we can do fun stuff as well. Time to cultivate your mind with the hottest and latest culty stuff thats going down. If you're not living on the moon, you probably heard of BORAT , the movie by the same guy who does Ali G about a journalist from Kazakhstan who does a tour of europe and the US. There has been a lot of fuss about this flick due to the fact that he kicks just about every country right in the nuts with his 'witty' remarks.

But now there is Bruno ! 

Well , next time you are around the watercooler, you can brag about BRUNO , the next  character of this very talented actor. His show Funkyzeit with Bruno deals with the adventures of a gay Austrian reporter touring the us. Now what happens if a fictional gay character runs into a bus of american gullable teens ? Check it out ! (Of course : Thanx to Codemonkey Rob for the link.)
