What is a “Quick Look?”
Well when I started writing distro reviews over on Desktop Linux Reviews, I ran into a small but important problem. Some distros would come out with minor updates that had some significant changes but not enough to warrant a full-blown review over on DLR. Usually this happens when there’s a big release, then a minor update within a few months.
So I decided to cover those minor distro updates here on Eye On Linux, and thus the “Quick Look” articles were born.
In addition to the text based information, each Quick Look also includes a full image gallery. So you can visually check out what that particular distro update has to offer.
The screenshots usually include the following (among other things):
The Install Routine
The Quick Look articles are split into three pages. The first page contains the What’s New, System Requirements and Install information. The second page contains the Software, Usage and Final Thoughts sections. The last page contains the full image gallery (generally around 20 screenshots).
I hope you find the Quick Look articles informative and useful. For full reviews, be sure to hop over to Desktop Linux Reviews.
