Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 - Gnome powered Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a popular Linux distribution developed by Canonical. Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander is the latest version and it's mainly powered with Unity desktop. For some people, Unity desktop is quite confusing, including me. Many people prefer Cinnamon, Gnome, Xfce because the are simpler than Unity. The UbuntuGnome community develop Ubuntu 13.10 with Gnome desktop. The call it Ubuntu Gnome 13.10, the official Ubuntu 13.10 with Gnome desktop. 
Ubuntu Gnome features Gnome 3.8, the most recent Gnome release that includes new boot loader theme etc. Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 is good but since I'm not a fan of Gnome either, I cannot give more review about this. Try yourself and if you like Gnome, you will like this Ubuntu Gnome 13.10

Default user and password for Fedora 19 LiveUSB

Default user and password for Fedora 19 LiveUSB

I was trying to create a Fedora 19 LiveUSB and it was successful. I was using Linux Live USB Creator (LiLi) I can boot my PC with my LiveUSB but stuck on the login page. It asking me to enter the username and password which I don't have it since I don't create it yet. So what is the user and password? Hmmm....
Searched on Google and found the answer on this forum thread: http://www2.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=288655. The problem came from the software I used to create the LiveUSB. The users on the forum suggest to use another software to create Fedora LiveUSB such as LiveUSB Creator, dd, livecd-tools.
If you have the same problem with mine, you should try to use those tools to create Fedora LiveUSB. I will share on this blog if I can solve this problem.
