Recent experience with Ubuntu 7.04 Vs Suse 10.2 Vs PCLOS 2007

Filed under
Linux

I'm using PCLOS since 6 months and it was the first distro that I tried recently. I had my first experience with the Linux in 1998, I had installed PCQ Linux and tried Suse that time. My experience with Suse was not at all good that time because it messed my partition and I had to struggle to get back things normal for few days. Since than I was on Windows, about 6 months back when I got pissed of Windows for its bugs,viruses and bloted environment with the slow performance I gave a thought to linux and when I thought about Linux it reminds me the past but still I thought lets try if things are changed.

I searched on the web and found top three distros Ubuntu,Suse and PCLOS. while surfing screenshots of the different OSs I like PCLOS .93 and it made me to download and install PCLOS. I was surprised how beautiful the linux is now compare to past. Not only the beauty it was flying on my old laptop with 256MB ram, it recognised everything and I got everything out-of-the-box.

Recently when the PCLOS site was down, it scared me that how would I get help and new things if it the PCLOS shutsdown one day!!! it made me to look around for other distros. As you can smell the other distro which was attracting me was Ubuntu and Suse. I didnt download for a while and at the same time PCLOS website was up and TR4 was about to release. I was happy about the PCLOS return but I was still abit scared, so I thought lets try Ubuntu 7.04 and Suse 10.2, and if they are good and can beat PCLOS than I would install them. I'm sure you guys will not believe what is coming up in next few paragraphs.

First I've created live CD of Ubuntu 7.04, and for SUSE I have option of either creating Live DVD or installation DVD (What a crap, cant they make one DVD for both), so I had created Installation DVD (because I had only one DVD).

Me too

My experiences led me to the same conclusion as anantgowerdhan. 'buntu and SuSE users don't realise what they are missing and what they are tolerating needlessly.

Agreed

Totally agreed that Ubuntu sucks and the users who haven't used any other distro except Ubuntu are missing many things. Although, I myself am completely happy with openSUSE, but now I think that it is time to try PCLOS as well.

OpenSUSE

I like the the look and feel of OpenSUSE a lot. They have some good kde coders and I love their kde patches. They have a complete control center and you can do almost everything graphically which is a big plus for any commercial distro.

GNOME News: Black Lab Drops GNOME and Further GNOME Experiments in Meson

  • Ubuntu-Based Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 Drops GNOME 3 for MATE Desktop
    Coming about two weeks after the release of Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11, which is based on the Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system using the HWE (hardware enablement) kernel from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 appears to be an unexpected maintenance update addressing a few important issues reported by users lately.
  • 3.26 Developments
    My approach to development can often differ from my peers. I prefer to spend the early phase of a cycle doing lots of prototypes of various features we plan to implement. That allows me to have the confidence necessary to know early in the cycle what I can finish and where to ask for help.
  • Further experiments in Meson
    Meson is definitely getting more traction in GNOME (and other projects), with many components adding support for it in parallel to autotools, or outright switching to it. There are still bugs, here and there, and we definitely need to improve build environments — like Continuous — to support Meson out of the box, but all in all I’m really happy about not having to deal with autotools any more, as well as being able to build the G* stack much more quickly when doing continuous integration.

Debian and Derivatives

  • Reproducible Builds: week 108 in Stretch cycle
  • Debuerreotype
    The project is named “Debuerreotype” as an homage to the photography roots of the word “snapshot” and the daguerreotype process which was an early method of taking photographs. The essential goal is to create “photographs” of a minimal Debian rootfs, so the name seemed appropriate (even if it’s a bit on the “mouthful” side).
  • The end of Parsix GNU/Linux
    The Debian-based Parsix distribution has announced that it will be shutting down six months after the Debian "Stretch" release.
  • Privacy-focused Debian 9 'Stretch' Linux-based operating system Tails 3.0 reaches RC status
    If you want to keep the government and other people out of your business when surfing the web, Tails is an excellent choice. The Linux-based operating system exists solely for privacy purposes. It is designed to run from read-only media such as a DVD, so that there are limited possibilities of leaving a trail. Of course, even though it isn't ideal, you can run it from a USB flash drive too, as optical drives have largely fallen out of favor with consumers. Today, Tails achieves an important milestone. Version 3.0 reaches RC status -- meaning the first release candidate (RC1). In other words, it may soon be ready for a stable release -- if testing confirms as much. If you want to test it and provide feedback, you can download the ISO now.
