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.

Security Leftovers

  • How To Improve The Linux System’s Security Using Firejail
    As you already know, Linux kernel is secure by default. But, it doesn’t mean that the softwares on the Linux system are completely secure. Say for example, there is a possibility that any add-ons on your web browser may cause some serious security issues. While doing financial transactions over internet, some key logger may be active in browser which you are not aware of. Even though, we can’t completely give the bullet-proof security to our Linux box, we still can add an extra pinch of security using an application called Firejail. It is a security utility which can sandbox any such application and let it to run in a controlled environment. To put this simply, Firejail is a SUID (Set owner User ID up on execution) program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications.

Containers vs. Zones vs. Jails vs. VMs

  • Setting the Record Straight: containers vs. Zones vs. Jails vs. VMs
    I’m tired of having the same conversation over and over again with people so I figured I would put it into a blog post. Many people ask me if I have tried or what I think of Solaris Zones / BSD Jails. The answer is simply: I have tried them and I definitely like them. The conversation then heads towards them telling me how Zones and Jails are far superior to containers and that I should basically just give up with Linux containers and use VMs. Which to be honest is a bit forward to someone who has spent a large portion of her career working with containers and trying to make containers more secure. Here is what I tell them:
  • [Old] Hadoop Has Failed Us, Tech Experts Say

    The Hadoop community has so far failed to account for the poor performance and high complexity of Hadoop, Johnson says. “The Hadoop ecosystem is still basically in the hands of a small number of experts,” he says. “If you have that power and you’ve learned know how to use these tools and you’re programmer, then this thing is super powerful. But there aren’t a lot of those people. I’ve read all these things how we need another million data scientists in the world, which I think means our tools aren’t very good.”
