What if Linux Distros were Women?

Filed under
Humor

I've used quite a few linux distros in my time. Recently it occurred to me what they would look like if they were beautiful, attractive women. I think perhaps I've spent too much time on the computer, eh? Anyway, I've made a list. Tell me what you think!

If Linux Distros were women:

Redhat:
Redhat would be a gorgous, expensive hooker. She'd do whatever you wanted, and do it well. You'll be left satisfied, but you'll have no idea how she did it. If you needed help with her, there are many paid phone numbers you can call to chat about her.

Fedora Core:
Fedora Core would be just as good as Redhat, but wouldn't cost you a dime.

CentOS:
CentOS would look just like Fedora Core, except... Except it would look just like Fedora Core.

Suse:
Suse would be a moderately attractive hooker. She wouldn't be quite as good as Redhat, but there are still lots of fun paid phone numbers for you to call.

OpenSuse:
OpenSuse would be every bit as good as Suse, but wouldn't cost you a penny.

Debian Sarge:
Debian Sarge would be a 50 year old lady. She'd cook, clean, and iron better than any other the other linux distros, would have no moodswings whatsoever, and would have a life expectancy of 157 years. There'd be plenty of people willing to help you maintain her, and they'd all be fairly knowledgable.

Debian Etch:
Debian Etch would be exactly like Debian Sarge, except that she'd be the spritely young age of 40.

Now we just need pictures.

'Nuff said. Smile

(And what's wrong with 40-year-olds anyway?!)

BeagleBone Announces the Open Source PocketBeagle USB-Key-Fob SBC

  • BeagleBone Announces the Open Source PocketBeagle USB-Key-Fob SBC
    You've probably heard of BeagleBones and the Beagleboard Foundation by now (check out that link if you're not familiar with them). They make open source SBCs and have an online community much like the Raspberry Pi Foundation. While Beaglebones don't have as large of a community or market share as Raspberry Pi, their boards are still quite popular because they tend to be more application-focused than Raspberry Pis. For example, there's the general-purpose Beaglebone Black, the sensor-oriented Beaglebone Green, and the Beaglebone Blue for robotics applications.

Graphics: NVIDIA, Nouveau, X.Org Server

  • NVIDIA Making Progress On Server-Side GLVND: Different Drivers For Different X Screens
    While NVIDIA isn't doing much to help out Nouveau, at least the company is contributing to the open-source Linux graphics ecosystem in other ways. In addition to presenting at XDC2017 this week on the Unix device memory allocator API and DeepColor / HDR support, they also presented on server-side GLVND. Server-side GLVND is separate from the client-side GLVND (OpenGL Vendor Neutral Dispatch Library) that evolved over the past few years and with modern Linux systems is supported both by Mesa and the NVIDIA binary driver. Server-side GLVND can help PRIME laptops and other use-cases like XWayland where potentially dealing with multiple GPU drivers touching X.
  • Nouveau Developers Remain Blocked By NVIDIA From Advancing Open-Source Driver
    Longtime Nouveau contributors Martin Peres and Karol Herbst presented at this week's XDC2017 X.Org conference at the Googleplex in Mountain View. It was a quick talk as they didn't have a whole lot to report on due to their open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" driver efforts largely being restricted by NVIDIA Corp.
  • X.Org Server 1.20 Expected Around January With New Features
    X.Org Server 1.19 is already almsot one year old and while X.Org is currently well off its six month release cadence, version 1.20 is being figured out for an early 2018 release. Adam Jackson of Red Hat who has been serving as the xorg-server release manager held a quick session on Friday at XDC2017 to figure out what's needed for X.Org Server 1.20. His goal is to see X.Org Server 1.20 released in time for making the Fedora 28 version. For that to happen nicely, he's hoping to see xorg-server 1.20 released in January. The Fedora 28 beta freeze is the middle of March so there is still time for the 1.20 release to slip while making the F28 Linux distribution update.
