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...

Alfresco Raises A Fresh $45M To Fuel Open-Source Enterprise Content Management

Alfresco, an open source, enterprise content management startup, is today announcing a new round of funding of $45 million — a Series D round that is more than twice as big as all of its previous rounds put together. The UK-based company competes against legacy services like Documentum (which was co-founded by one of Alfresco’s co-founders, John Newton) and Sharepoint to help large organisations manage their disparate document storage both in the cloud and on-premises, and also offer versioning control and other compliance requirements across mobile, PC and other devices. Alfresco will use the new funding to step its business up a gear, with new sales and marketing efforts, and moves into more cloud-based services that could see it competing more directly also against the likes of Dropbox, Box and Huddle.

HandyLinux 1.6.1 Is a Linux Distro with a Windows Vibe

HandyLinux is a newer operating system and its developers have tried to provide a clear and familiar desktop interface. It might feel like it has a Windows 8 vibe, which is probably an effect of the theme used, but the OS is actually quite interesting. One of the most interesting aspects of the distribution is the menu launcher, which is quite odd. It opens a new window with all the applications and the user has to choose from there on. It's definitely something different from the norm. Read more

New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

I’ve recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of use in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more

Intel's Latest Linux Graphics Code Competes Against OS X 10.9

Tests I carried out last month with a Haswell-based Apple MacBook Air showed Linux largely smashing OS X 10.9 with the latest open-source graphics driver code on Linux over Apple's OpenGL driver. Today I'm testing the latest OS X 10.9.4 state against the newest Linux kernel and Intel Mesa driver code on Ubuntu while this time using an older Sandy Bridge era Apple Mac Mini. Read more
