First of all, let's understand: there are no Romanian distractions in the true sense of the word, there are only some repainted porters / rejects + a few wallpapers, of other operating systems. In the following we will tell you how, in our opinion at this moment, the Romanian destructions are presented .

Some starting ideas:

- In general, many non-Romanian distributions such as Fedora have an installer and / or content 100% in Romanian. The so-called " Romanian " ones have partial translations, they were completely missing in some cases. The Romanian language in general (except Academix which makes efforts), is not necessary, " we are only international distributions ".

- The " fantastic " and " brilliant " idea of turning Gentoo into a useless thing seems to be a Romanian fashion.

- In general nothing new, nothing special, just other distributions based on other distributions,

- Romanian programmers believe that if they simply succeed by bouncing a distribution, they will be wrong. If I think arrogance you would help with something is wrong. If I think they are interested in someone as long as they " waste " them for the maintenance of the distribution, they are wrong. Nobody cares !.

- Many programmers are not interested in what a distribution looks like, how functional it is, how easy it is to use, how good the documentation and support are. They are interested in writing in their CV that they " worked / maintained " a distro.

- The end user, the one who uses the distribution, the one who wants to help the project, the one who wants to sponsor the project wants to see something other than for example a Gentoo with a different theme and a different name. All of them are not interested in " portage ", " root " " package compilation ", because they don't know which package is stronger than another, etc. Her elbow hurts! .

Users want a beautiful, eye candy captivating, easy to use (without terminal), fast, documented, reliable, versatile and original . Point.

But let's take them in turn with:

- Pluses
- Neutral
- Minuses


Redcore Linux is a distribution based on Gentoo Linux and a sequel to Kogaion Linux. The cast itself is promising, although there is still a lot of work to be done.

- The cast is visually unattractive, outdated, dusty, unfriendly to the user, and seems to be maintained by only one man - Ghiunhan Mamut (aka V3n3RiX). LXQT brings with it win95, with the beginnings of linux - at least an uninspired choice.

The Redcore Linux project - was started and is maintained by Ghiunhan Mamut, who "plays" several roles: full-time maintainer, coder, packager, ISO creator , bug squasher, etc. ica, meaning he works alone.

However, it accepts contributions from anyone, regardless of area of ??interest (website, wiki, bugs, packages, etc.).

Ghiunhan Mamut is an ordinary guy, passionate about technology and especially GNU / Linux. He has no training in the field, but he is self-taught, he likes to learn new things and experiment with the operating parameters of a GNU / Linux system.

The developer has been using Linux every day for over 10 years, starting in 2006. During this time he was a classic user and used several distributions, but he never felt completely satisfied with any of them. Distributions used: Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva, Rosa, ArchLinux, Chakra, Slackware and finally stopped at Gentoo in December 2012.

- Redcore Linux moves well in general.
- Missing a tool cover screen on first installation.
- Although it wants to be a distro lite, the simple navigation in the start menu sometimes leads the processor (4core) to 90% ...
- It does not bring anything new compared to other distributions. No visual identity.

The distribution website can be categorized in the best case: mediocre .

- the design is from the '90s, without rss feed, without contact form, non-bilingual, etc.
- wiki almost does not exist,
- if you want to help the Recore project and you don't have Paypal you can't.
- the git is archaic and useless.
- a presentation of the team of programmers / developers is missing (if any)

PS : Although Redcore claims to be a " Romanian " distribution - wiki, git, website, bugs are in English.

Team rating 5.5. There is still work to be done.

AcademiX GNU / Linux

AcademiX GNU / Linux (Debian_based) includes programs specific to the educational field, grouped in a utility that facilitates their installation, suggestively called EDU . It includes 24 sections with over 55,000 packages.

- the theme of the distribution is clean, elegant, intuitive.
- moves very well.
- Missing a tool cover screen at first installation.
- rich, diverse software, a real distribution for education.

The distribution website is one with a clean, well-structured, bilingual design (Romanian-English).

- the content in Romanian is sometimes in English (eg on the first page)
- the documentation is excellent,
- the large team.
- wiki is still working.
- the website loads quite hard (thanks to the Wordpress cms)

Team rating 8.0. It's on the right track.
