    O-S Distro Loads and Tests!

    New thread to test new OS software test loads.

    First test candidate, the new version of Parrot Linux 4.5, with Mate desktop, and new Kernel 4.19.13.
    I have it loaded Live.
    It is built on Debian, is quick and snappy, has lots of features.
    It is using the Mate desktop, is similar to ubuntu, and other debian distros.
    It comes with LibreOffice suite, and is compatible with MS office document file types.
    It comes loaded with a dark border theme, but is fully customizable to other theme types.
    It can be downloaded for free here.

    **I give it a grade of a B.

    New Test candidate is Fedora Workstation 29, running kernel 4.18.16.
    Fedora is the open source, and test software for and owned by Redhat Linux.
    I liked the live load so well, I installed it on the hard drive.
    Fedora Workstation comes with the Gnome Desktop, which is my current desktop of choice.
    Fedora workstation , is very similar to Ubuntu Gnome.
    Fedora uses Yum as the package manager, Ubuntu uses Apt as the package manager.
    Fedora workstation 29 can be downloaded for free from here.

    Burn it to a USB stick or burn it to a DVD, and try in live mode.
    That allows you to try it on your computer, without loading it to the hard drive.
    Great OS software, and I grade it an A.
    Here's some screenshots of Fedora 29 Workstation!

    Ubuntu-Gnome

    Here's Ubuntu's version of gnome desktop, their version used since scrapping their Unity desktop, in Oct. 2017.
    This is the preview of 19.04, that will be released in April.
    I loaded it in minimal configuration. It seems to have loaded most things except LibreOffice.
    Ubuntu version of gnome, has the builtin dock bar on the left.
    I have the dock bar, set to autohide, when other programs are running, like Firefox, it retracts out of the way.
    It is very fast, and so far works great.
    You can get the free download here.
