Many of you have probably heard of YOPER Linux. Personally, even though I’ve been using GNU/Linux exclusively for the past seven or so years, I’ve only personally delved into 4 or 5 distributions. With over 50 different distributions available in the GNU/Linux world I haven’t had time to get to YOPER. That’s getting ready to change.
After reading this writer’s evaluation of YOPER I’m probably going to have to give it a whirl. If not for myself maybe my brother or sister up north.
According to the writer, YOPER is based on ‘Linux from scratch’ and defaults to the very well rounded KDE desktop environment after install. It uses RPM but uses apt-get atop it for better package management and dependency checking. It looks like adding/removing software is pretty breezy too since all packages come directly from the repository online. If you have a relative with a cable modem or DSL they’d probably love having access to all this software with the ease of KDE and the security of Linux.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
