Why do so many Linux OS developers insist on ruining a good Desktop/Laptop OS by putting the Enterprise focused Linux ‘Nanny in charge of the OS instead of the home desktop user?!? Don’t try to give me that BS “it’s about security” Enterprise baloney.

  1. Chromebook’s Chrome OS has one login password at the Login Screen and nothing after that. Chrome OS is more secure than any Linux OS.
  2. MS Windows OSes give the home Desktop/Laptop user a choice of using a login password or not, and then nothing to slow down workflow after that. Windows OSes are more secure than any Linux OS.
  3. My Android phones have never mentioned the need for a “password,” but I have heard that some phones offer the option of having one. Android is more secure than any Linux OS.

Are you a Linux OS developer using the Enterprise focused Linux ‘Nanny on an OS you are trying to promote as a “Desktop” OS? Then drop the annoying “Authenticate” popups or other Pesky Passwords after the original login, or at least offer the option for home users to opt out of such archaic OS demands on the home users own computers.

TUXEDO has created an excellent Desktop/Laptop OS, and then ruined it by putting the Enterprise focused Linux ‘Nanny in charge of the home user’s own computer instead of the home user. Insulting at best, IMHO.

TUXEDO OS 1

What are the differences between TUXEDO OS 1 and Ubuntu/Kubuntu?

With the release of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS “Jammy Jellyfish”, TUXEDO OS received a new desktop environment with KDE Plasma, replacing Budgie as the default desktop. This was accompanied by plenty of changes, which we explain in more detail in this article.

The decision to use KDE Plasma as the desktop environment was made because of its unparalleled configurability. This allows us to design the system according to our ideas. The customer can completely overturn this and implement their own ideas.

Well, just like Ubuntu, you made sure that I would be forced to deal wid annoying “Authenticate” popups or other Pesky Passwords throughout the computer session. No option, just a take it or leave it Ubuntu attitude.

Why yet another Linux distribution?

Why do we invest a lot of extra work and offer our own distribution, especially since there is already a large number out there for every taste?

With its Linux optimized hardware, TUXEDO delights customers with different levels of knowledge about computers in general and Linux in particular.

It can be installed on most any computer…it was installed on the ‘Rose‘ Linux test computer for this review.

With TUXEDO OS you can easily manage your everyday life! Whether it is surfing the web, writing emails, creating presentations or calculations, editing photos or even playing games – TUXEDO OS comes with a multitude of useful apps for most use cases and offers hundreds of additional, reviewed apps (mostly) free to download via the integrated app store.

Installing TUXEDO OS 1

I downloaded the TUXEDO-OS-1-202210101538.iso @ 3.09 GB and used Rufus to create a bootable ‘Live‘ USB.

Fast ‘n easy installation.

Post-installation

It is a beautiful OS, and the KDE Plasma desktop is a perfect fit! Very easy to work wid, as KDE Plasma keeps getting better ‘n easier to use.

It can be installed in the language of your choice, but then it appears that it can also switch from that language to German if you wish:

From English to German:

That TUXEDO Control Center does a lot of ‘Stuff‘ like System Monitor:

Note the “This feature is not supported on your model” – some things on the TUXEDO Control Center work best on an actual TUXEDO computer. No biggie, I don’t use any annoying “Authenticate” popups or other Pesky Passwords OS that is mainly designed to slow down home users workflow.

Here the System Info:

Note it automatically installed my GeForce GTX 1660 SC ULTRA GPU:

More ‘n more Linuxes are sloooooooowly starting to automatically install the Nvidia graphic drivers.

Nice Desktop:

Conclusion

Beautifully done DE & OS…which gets ruined by the typical Linux Enterprise’s archaic OS mentality, i.e., wid the Linux ‘Nanny shouting demands at the home users on *THEIR* own computers.

Will add this post to the KDE Plasma – ‘Newb TidBits page.

LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
