Farewell Gentoo, hello openSuse

SUSE

Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?

I see you think. Well that there where around 35 packages which linked to it and needed to get recompiled. *Sigh* and that after hours of waiting to get the update finished. So I started revdep-rebuild and wanted to do some development underwhile. Not possible! about every app I needed was linked to that lib so i had to wait while my system was completly unusable for that time.

Ok that was it.

Drifting away from Gentoo made me think about it.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity.

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
