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?!)

Open source Linux-on-Zynq SBC debuts new FPGA add-on standard

Opal Kelly’s “SYZYGY Brain-1” SBC, which runs Linux on a Zynq-7012S, is a proof of concept for its SYZYGY standard for FPGA-driven peripherals. FPGA development firm Opal Kelly has gone to Crowd Supply to launch a development board to showcase its SYZYGY standard for FPGA peripheral expansion. SYZYGY bridges the gap between Digilent’s low-speed Pmod connector and the higher-end VITA 57.1 FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Card) standard. The open source, 110 x 75mm SYZYGY Brain-1 SBC runs Linux on a Xilinx Zynq-7012S SoC, a member of the FPGA-enabled Zynq-7000S family, which offers single Cortex-A9 cores instead of dual dual cores on the Zynq-7000 series.

Why Linux can make you feel thankful or merely stuffed

There are many reasons why I came to appreciate Unix and then Linux and why they became such an important part of my life. These operating systems provided a focus and a career specialty that I've greatly enjoyed. I appreciate Linus Torvalds and the many thousands of developers who have contributed their time and energy into building a powerful, efficient and enjoyable operating system. I appreciate the many tools and commands that make them so easy to use and get my work done. And I appreciate the chances that I've had to share what I've learned with so many others. It's been fun, and it's been very rewarding. Read more

Ubuntu-Based ExLight Linux OS Is One of the Few to Use Latest Enlightenment 0.22

ExLight Build 171121 replaces last week's Build 171112, which used the older Enlightenment 0.20 desktop from the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) software repositories, to update Enlightenment to the latest 0.22 release that the developer compiled from sources. This makes ExLight one of few distros to use Enlightenment 0.22. "Version 171112 uses Enlightenment 0.20 installed from Ubuntu’s repositories. Build 171121 of ExLight uses Enlightenment 0.22 installed by me from source," said the developer in the release announcement. "Only two Linux distributions in the whole wide world (besides ExLight) use Enlightenment 0.22 as desktop environment." Read more

Ubuntu 17.10 Users Get Major Kernel Update, 20 Security Vulnerabilities Patched

If you're using the latest Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system on your personal computer, you should know that it received it's first major kernel update since the official release back in October 19, 2017. The update addresses a total of 20 security vulnerabilities for Ubuntu 17.10's Linux 4.13 kernel packages, including the Raspberry Pi 2 one. Among the security issues patched in this update, five are related to Linux kernel's USB subsystem, including a use-after-free vulnerability, which could allow a physically proximate attacker to crash the affected system by causing a denial of service (DoS attack) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Other three are related to the ALSA subsystem, including a race condition. Read more
