Do you suffer from Small Distro Syndrome?

Filed under
Humor

Almost all men experience anxiety about the size or appearance of their distro at some time. For most men, these feelings will pass but, for others, they can be persistent and disabling. A man's concern about his small distro can lead to avoidance of lan parties, coffee shops and other activities where other men might see his small desktop distro. Such men are not only embarrassed by the apparent smallness of their distro, but frequently also feel ashamed and silly about their anxiety, too. If you're tired of suffering from Small Distro Syndrome (SDS), we have help available now! Get a super large distro! Be the envy of other men! 100% guaranteed!

The most common side effects with Debian were headache and upset stomach. Eye Strain and wrist ache were also reported, sometimes with delayed onset. Most men weren't bothered by the side effects enough to stop using Debian. As with any distro, in the rare event of a configuration session lasting more than 4 hours, seek immediate geek help to avoid long-term downtime.

all valuables are small

You are so wicked. But my leading statement is true. Think bars of gold or, even smaller, diamonds and emeralds. I make a practice of avoiding men who show others their distro. And a session with a Debian geek is likely to last about 4 years before you can work out what it's about. I feel ill just thinking about it.

Size Matters ??

My wife always tells my "Size doesnt Matter? But then again... She uses Windows Smile

damn small

I have a Damn Small Linux, but I know how to use it! Big Grin

I'll stop now...

I think I will stop now. We could go on forever about which distro is the smallest and fastest as well as which one is most stable... After all we were talking about linux and all is good no matter which flavor...

Red Hat News

  • Red Hat's Results Underscore its Growing Focus on OpenStack
    Late last week, Red Hat reported earnings per share of 55 cents on revenue of $600 million, beating estimates of 54 cents and $590 million, respectively. One thing that went unsaid across much of the coverage is that the company is in the midst of a major shift in its strategy toward OpenStack-based cloud computing, and it looks like service revenues and positive momentum from that effort are starting to arrive. "Our growth was driven in part by expanding our footprint with customers as we closed a record number of deals over $1 million, up approximately 60 percent year-over-year," Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst said during his company's earnings call. Seven of the top 30 deals had OpenStack in there, nine had RHEV," Whitehurst said. "We had three OpenStack deals alone that were over $1 million. So I think we're seeing really, really, really good traction there."

pump.io Servers Adoption

  • Adopt a pump.io server
    As most of you know, E14N is no longer my main job, and I've been putting my personal time, energy, and money into keeping the pump network up and running. I haven't always done a good job, and some of the nodes have just fallen off the network. I'd like to ask people in the community to start taking over the maintenance and upkeep of these servers.
  • Prodromou: Adopt a pump.io server
    There are currently around 25 servers in the federated network initially started by Prodromou, which does not count other pump.io instances. He notes that one important exception is the identi.ca site, which is significantly larger than the rest, and which he would like to find a trusted non-profit organization to maintain.

Intel Core i7 6800K Benchmarks On Ubuntu + Linux 4.8

While the Core i7 6800K has been available for a few months now, there hadn't been any review on it since Intel hadn't sent out any Broadwell-E samples for Linux testing this time around. However, I did end up finally buying a Core i7 6800K now that the Turbo Boost Max 3.0 support is finally coming together (at first, Intel PR said it wouldn't even be supported on Linux) so that I can run some benchmarks there plus some other interesting items on the horizon for benchmarking. Here are some benchmarks of the i7-6800K from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the Linux 4.8 kernel. Read more
