Quick guide on how to install Linux alongside MacOS on your old Mac, and make it more useful.
I had the How to make a digital backup of your DVD collection wihtout qualtiy loss? The idea is to avoid losing your movie collection after years of use, and improve the cinematic experience by upgrading your subtitles from a sad images sequence to a real text file, which font and size you’ll be able to configure.
The process is quite easy with the right tools, this post will tell you how to do it on Windows.
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS has been released last month. LTS is an abbreviation for “Long Term Support”: while a new Ubuntu Desktop is released every six months, the LTS versions are released every 2 years and receive a 5 years support. An ideal solution for anyone looking for stability. Ubuntu has nine flavours and dozens of localised and specialised derivatives, but we are focusing today on the main ‘official’ version.
While I wasn’t fond of Unity, Ubuntu’s default desktop environment, a few years ago, it has been greatly improved lately and may become a solid solution for a light and punchy virtual machine.

Autumn is here, it’s time to change our wallpaper! And our distro as well… Today we’ll see how to tweak Lubuntu, the lightest and simplest of the *buntu releases to make it run smoother than ever and look a bit nicer.
To do that we’ll use the Openbox window manager, a highly configurable WM that “allows you to change almost every aspect of how you interact with your desktop and invent completely new ways to use and control it.” I’ve already mentioned it a few time on this blog, while doing some testing on the brilliant Crunchbang Debian distribution. And as the spiritual successor of Crunchbang, BunsenLabs, is about to be launched, it seems an excellent timing to have a new look at Openbox.
