Antergos Linux : The beauty built on Arch

Hi guys, welcome to the 16th segment of "Introduction with Linux Distro". Most of us know or heard about Arch Linux, which is one of the most widely used Linux distribution. For some reason, few users find it hard to install and use Arch. But in Linux world, there is almost always some alternative to your desired distribution. In today's segment, we will be introducing an Arch-based distribution which turned it completely on user-friendly side. So, let's get to know about Antergos Linux.
Antergos was first released by the name Cinnarch in 2012. At first, Cinnarch used Cinnamon as default desktop environment But then the team shifted to Gnome and also changed the name to Antergos. This distribution is based in Spain and based on Arch Linux. For this post, we used latest Antergos 17.2 with KDE plasma desktop.
  • The Beauty: Even though it is built on Arch Linux, Antergos is seriously beautiful. Antergos Linux not only uses Gnome as default desktop environment. but also it provides KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE as alternatives to choose from. Antergos Linux has partenerd with Numix and provides some exclusive icons and themes created by Numix. Not to mention all those themes and icons are simply beautiful.

Facebook Announced Video App for watching videos on Smart TVs-Find Out More

We all watch hundreds of videos on our Facebook Feed, videos by our friends & family, Pages and People we follow, Groups and some others.Whatever might be the source of the videos we simply love watching videos and facebook is now having a large amount of videos. We can not say it rivals YouTube but in near future, it might and one more step has been taken towards that.Facebook on 14th Feb, announced a new way to watch Facebook videos, now Facebook is rolling out the ability to watch Facebook Feed videos direct on your TV using a mobile app.So now you can watch your favorite videos on bigger screens with just one click on your mobile phone.The app will allow users to watch all kind of facebook videos direct on their Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV and we guess on other smart TVs should also work.

Even if this feature is something we have already seen by other video serving sites and apps, Facebook videos stand differently from all of them, being short in length and of course videos by family and friends on events, birthdays or any sudden live on Facebook can not be compared to others.
