Reddit: Is Linux community acting like a hoarder?

Thursday 5th of March 2015 07:52:31 PM

So you have different shells, init programs, VMs, package formats, made for different architectures (some of which are ancient) etc. Yes choice is good, but not to the point of hoarding everything. There is a real cost to providing too many choices.

A lot of times, having different tools that do same things creates problems. But rather tham drop something, mentality seems to be "hey lets create yet another thing to solve this problem ”. Each additional thing increas complexity exponentially because you have to make sure each thing does not break every other thing.

Part of the problem might be that Linux is community driven and not customer driven. Few members of a community incurr the cost of clutter, so everyone always wants everything, just in case they decide to use it someday. There needs to be a way to better allocate resources based on actual needs and available supply.

Reddit: If 3 years ago you told me that this year Warner Bros. would be doing a same day Linux release of their biggest title yet, I would have called you crazy.

How fast Valve, Unreal, Unity, and everything is moving is mind blowing. It hasn't even been 3 years since Valve announced Steam on Linux. It just feels fucking surreal

What's the difference to the normal graphics driver by nvidia/amd/intel?

Why is it faster? In how far is it different? How long until we can actually use it? What needs to happen until it's actually usable?

Reddit: Looking for experienced CentOS user

Thursday 5th of March 2015 11:07:52 AM

-I'm willing to pay (send paypal funds / gift voucher) to somebody that can help me :) -contact me here or add my skype "live:rekkke" or email me ""

I'm going to be setting up a couple of servers with CentOS (6.5?) because I believe it is the best for what I am going to be doing.

I've tried doing it before but I always run into a lot of problems, that's why I'm looking for somebody that can give me some step-by-step instructions for the setup I need. Read on if you want to see what steps I'll need:

  1. Install the OS onto my server, via SSH (I have ssh program already) from Windows computer
  2. Install firefox/chrome
  3. Install vnc-server so I can view my sever via a VNC-viewer
  4. Install an up-to-date version of java 7 or 8 so I can run the program "Tribot" - when I was configuring my server before I installed Java 7 however when I tried to run this program it wouldn't let me open it with java, even though I installed it via root. I then tried to download and install Java, but I had nothing to open the installer with :/
  5. Install a desktop (any) to my server.

If anyone is willing to help me, I am willing to pay for this guide/information, my skype is "like:rekkke" and my email is "", thanks! :)

  • JOSE – JSON Object Signing and Encryption
    Federated Identity Management has become very widespread in past years – in addition to enterprise deployments a lot of popular web services allow users to carry their identity over multiple sites. Social networking sites especially are in a good position to drive the federated identity management, as they have both critical mass of users and the incentive to become an identity provider. As the users move away from a single device to using multiple portable devices, there is a constant pressure to make the federated identity protocols simpler (with respect to complexity), more user friendly (especially for developers) and easier to implement (on wide range of devices and platforms).

Linux in the Old Homestead

My darling daughter Mimi, who had installed Debian when she was 9 (with her proud father watching over her shoulder), had been an Ubuntu user for years. We’ll get to why that was OK with her Dad in a minute. Unity, of course, changed everything: She hated it as much as her father did (and does), and she switched to Linux Mint, which she had been using for the last several years. Read more
