Is there a good, new series out there?

Hi there,

Yes, this question is real. I just looked through the new series that are running right now. In the end, it doesn't seem like there is any new series airing, that is at least watchable. Do you have a suggestion or can you prove me wrong?

What am I doing?

Hi there,

I am back, once again. But there is one problem, I now have to clean up my home, take care of my plants, pets, and such. So still not really the time to do something in here, but I will get there. And I finally want to write some articles about BDOS.
In excuse for my absence, have a nice song:


Evening @all,

I am really sorry that I wasn't online today. But my grandma needed help, and now I am suffering of sleep deprivation from the sleeping schedule of last week. So it really isn't the best time of my life to start a blog. I hope you can still stay patient with me.

Game: Battle of Wesnoth

Wesnoth is one of those games, you either like or hate. It is a very simple, straight forward to begin with  and still only recommandable to brainiacs. 

Morning the fourteenth

Morning @all,

I just want to keep up with my followers and comments. It is hard work, as there are more than 150 of you now, thank you.
Besides that, I have an article already written. On top of that, I collect a few videos on Youtube that will show some features that are included in BDOS.

Morning the thirteenth

Morning @all,

Today I am finally able to spend more time with this blog. So now I installed BDOS on my netbook and look if it works out.
Since the question was raised yesterday, why did I not include OpenOffice? For the same reason I did not include Chromium: They are both insanely huge and waste a lot of space. You can still install these with the package manager, but I wanted a small and lighter distribution, that can fit on a CD if it has to.

Some thoughts on BDOS

Hi there,

once again no article, but I mean to write one over night. This post is meant to give you some general impressions on my new baby.
As you have seen, I made quite some text yesterday. This is actually a feature many distributions use to represent their new releases, so I wanted this tradition to catch on. But, it isn't all candy.
To give you one example, Koffice isn't a hundred percent stable in its current form. I also forgot some features, as Skype and some games I included. Still, the software I included in BDOS is the software I use everyday and that I can recommend without doubts, despite the flaws I mentioned above.

And one last message: I did not know that you have to register in order to download this software. But since we all have Google accounts already, registration isn't to hard.

Morning the twelfths

Morning @all,

Today I have to go out with my niece, so I am not online for the morning, most likely it will take until afternoon. So sadly, I still have to leave you alone with BDOS. If you like, you can install it on a usb stick and play around with it. You cannot destroy anything, so have fun.

And now?

Hi there,

Thank you all for your patience, I hope I did not stretch it out too far. After BDOS is released now, what will happen in the future?
First of all, I can now start making tutorials and explanations, as this was my original goal. The reason why I created BSOD was simple: I needed a base to work on. When I write an article about something on Linux, many people will use different software. But this way, I have a foundation to work on.
Secondly, I still don't know what else there is. Yeah, I am still stuck on that one. Maybe I should write more about games, because games are always great.

Some additional informations to BDOS

What's the default password?
For the tux account as well as for root.

BDOS released

Finally, after some days of hard work and several hours of testing, it is done. At this point, I present to you, the Blaustil Desktop OS (Short: BDOS).

Morning the eleventh

Morning @all,

I hope you had a great sunday, mine was full of success. As I already told you, the major bug is gone, and since then I only had a few minor issues. But the should be gone by now, so I will power up a good presentation to you. Stay tuned, because today it is getting hot.

Me 1 : Bugs 0

Hi there,

So finally I did it. The Bug is gone and we are now ready for public testing (You might want to call it beta :-) ).
For those who are curios: I removed an additional package, of which I thought was unnecessary. It turns out it had an additional dependency, which is used to create menu entries. And since it was not available, there where no menu entries.
And now I am out of here, the sun is shining and it is warm outside. So please stay patient with me.

Morning the tenth

Morning @all,

Thank you all for your support, it really keeps me motivated. But the bad is still there, the bug is not gone. I have an idea that will maybe fix it, and if this does not work, I don't know what does.
Also, I am sorry for not posting any articles in the last time. I started to write about Wesnoth, but between RL and building and testing a Linux, there is not much time to write.
