Forums full of anarchists, communists, and other undesirable people. Use Fedora or Ubuntu. Get the real thing unless you want to shoot yourself in the foot

The wallpapers are better than the Hippo, but hey, so get and change it. ( default fonts make up for it totally, totally. Remember, if it works, don’t fix it! If your scared, load it on an old drive. And, in time you won’t be going back to that Windows drive and you won’t have to blow a century note again for the “latest” crappy.OOps! copy. The Gnome desktop is different than Windows. Wet your whistle with Blag. WELIKEIT, Old Mike

By: Ed LaBonte Mon, 24 Sep 2007 16:06:31 +0000 In the final comments the author did not recommend Blag because of “lack of support”. He obviously didn’t check out the forums. They are possibly the most responsive and helpful in the Linux world.

Their anarchism is very “hands on”. 😉

By: krishna Thu, 20 Sep 2007 07:27:46 +0000 i also feel the same like manmath. why do the blag people make the default blag interface look such a drive-off thing. any answers?

By: manmath Thu, 20 Sep 2007 07:23:38 +0000 i liked blag, but removed it from my pc after a week. because:

1. it does not install openoffice by default.
2. its interface is not sane (don’t know do they make it look so)
3. slow bootup
4. problem in customization

now, i am using pclinuxos 2007, and i am happy.

By: jeff moe Thu, 30 Aug 2007 23:02:40 +0000 OpenOffice can be installed by running:

yum install


yum install kdebase

You can also use apt-get if you prefer that and/or use the synaptic program to install applications with a GUI.

By: navaneeth Thu, 30 Aug 2007 07:01:48 +0000 i am using blag linux (fc6version). its good. i was using fc6 before that. i need glade and postgressql for my proffession. i can easly install these from fc6 cd. using rpm command. but openoffice installation is not possible(may be for me). i like to upgrade blag with fc6 to get kde feature. if anyone have know how to do this please inform.

By: Pol Thu, 07 Jun 2007 10:19:43 +0000 As for blag6000 my ati rage 128 ultra turbo card was recognized instantly but of course no 3d desktop with it.

Also installation of glchess went out without any problems 🙂

And when comparing blag and fedora, I would always grab out the blag – that’s more mature choice for me.

By: RU Tue, 05 Jun 2007 16:22:02 +0000 I have used and tested many Linux & BSD OS, been using BLAG60001 for about 10 days and I really like it.
Pros: Vary good programs by default and using Synaptic Package Manager is the best of the Linux programs.
Cons: Needs some work on installer but I got throw it OK, and never got my Epson printer to work other than that its a vary good OS.
