Evolve OS - an Upcoming Linux Distribution Featuring a New Desktop Environment

Evolve OS is a new upcoming Linux distribution based on openSUSE and sporting a new desktop environment based on the Gnome 3 stack. You may immediately be thinking, is this yet another 'Ubuntu Killer' promising a lot and ultimately delivering little? But Evolve OS has a different philosophy and some interesting ideas.

No listing at DistroWatch yet.

openSUSE, however, is very popular.  They may make some good improvements.  I always like seeing good distros made better.

Something new that isn't Ubuntu-based? Huh.

My cheap potato phone (Kyocera Event) & my tablet (Nexus 7) both run Android. It's not perfect, but it's a lot better than iOS. My laptops run Linux, of course. I wish I had the time to put Paranoid Android on my phone & tablet, but for now, vanilla Android is okay.

I just picked up a Galaxy Tab 3 and A Galaxy S4 last Thursday evening. I will soon be cutting all ties with Apple and their iOS, just as soon as I get all my contacts and calendar data transferred back to Google and g-mail. Never again! I still don't know what possessed me to tie myself to them for two years. It was just something new, at least to me. Have spent more time with the new phone than the tablet, but am already enjoying the hey out of both of them.

Android: The Most Popular OS In The World

We have been having the biggest debate of the mobile world for a few years now… Android, or iOS?  Each of them have their own major perks.  Android has its insane amount of customization possibilities, and iOS has its ease of use (just to name a few).  However, a new report from the IDC shows us some irrefutable proof:  Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world.  Over the last three years, the Android operating system market share, in percentages of global unit shipments, has increased by roughly 29.6%, while iOS has dropped 3.6%.  Windows Phone has surprisingly gained 1.5%, and BlackBerry has dropped 9.4%.  As of May of last year, Samsung held the title of the first place, but that is to be expected.

I pretty much just play NES/SNES/SEGA Genesis emulators on my ancient Lenovo 3000 N100 so... I'm not the best to chime in. I do know that AMD drivers are problematic in Linux. I'd go Intel, personally.
