ArchLinux

I didn't know ArchLinux came totally from Crux. I was under the impression it had some LinuxFromScratch roots in there.

Ark

It's interesting how he represented Ark as well, with it on a path all by itself but a dotted line from Red Hat.

He did a wonderful job on that graphic.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

Ark

True, Ark shouldn't have a path by itself. It is clearly a Redhat fork. Bero forked Ark from Redhat 7.2 and started developing it independently from there.

Linux Distro Cross-Reference?

I work mostly on RHEL/CentOS/Fedora systems (and mostly via the CLI), so when working on a Debian or SUSE system, I'm always hitting Google trying to find the proper applet or syntax or file location.

Anarchy Linux Dispels Fear of Arch

Not having a demo mode to preview how the OS runs on your particular hardware can be a time-consuming setback. However, once you have Anarchy Linux up and running, it will give you a very pleasing computing experience. Much of what happens after installation depends on the desktop environment you selected. If you have a desktop preference or prefer one of the included window manager environments instead, you can forget about the sullied reputation that comes with Arch Linux distros. For many reasons, Anarchy Linux is a winning choice. Read more

Intel Graphics Performance: Ubuntu 17.04 vs. 17.10

Given the Ubuntu 17.10 release this week and its massive desktop changes from GNOME Wayland to Mesa/kernel upgrades, we've been busy benchmarking this new Ubuntu OS release.
