Do you suffer from Small Distro Syndrome?

Filed under

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...

Data indicates that Android picked up global market share from iOS last month

Tracking mobile web traffic, NetMarketShare computes the market share for mobile operating systems. Based on the data from last month, Android was able to widen its gap over iOS globally. Considering that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus weren't launched until September 25th, the recently released phones accounted for a miniscule part of the data. The new models won't have a major effect on the results until the figures for this month are released. Read more

RapidDisk / RapidCache 3.4 now available.

RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives. I pushed 3.4 into the mainline earlier this morning. Changes include:
  • Added ability to autoload RapidDisk volumes during module insertion.
  • Fixed bug in RapidDisk (volatile) volume size definition across 32 to 64 bit types.
  • Making use of BIT() macro in the driver.
  • Removed RapidDisk-NV support. It was redundant with the recently kernel integrated pmem code.
You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page. To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.
