My story with Linux, Part 1

Filed under
Linux

My story with Debian GNU\Linux is a true love story. At least for the time being. This post is dedicated to describe how I got “here”. “Here” is my relationship with Debian on my laptop, and this post will also describe what I can or can’t do with my Debian GNU\Linux and will be like a long going bug report, hopefully this will help someone resolve those bugs with time.

I’ve started using Linux about 3.5 years ago. My first installation was Mandriva 2005 LE. I loved it, I enjoyed the beautiful KDE 3.5 desktop they had. But this was on an old desktop I had. I wanted it on my laptop, HP compaq nx6110. After a few days of struggling with setting up wifi, I decided to install Fedora 3.

This was fun also. I love their gnome desktop and slick font design and overall desktop design. But again I had problems with wifi on this laptop… So I moved to OpenSUSE which was released then. MAN! that was it ! I stuck on SUSE, everything worked. I loved the desktop, I love how easily I could install software, that was it. Me and the chameleon were best friend, until I wanted to upgrade to OpenSUSE 10.1…

The decision to upgrade was a disaster

Early Ubuntu 14.04 vs. Ubuntu 16.04 Intel Xeon E5 Benchmarks

This morning I posted some Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 LTS Radeon graphics benchmarks while if open-source AMD graphics driver evolution doesn't get you excited, in this article are results from other non-graphics benchmarks in comparing the Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 performance for these long-term support releases in their current form. For getting an idea how the overall Ubuntu Linux performance has evolved over the past two years for those solely riding Long-Term Support releases, I compared the performance of Ubuntu 14.04.0 to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in its current daily ISO form. The tests were done on the same Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 (Haswell) system with MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard, 16GB of RAM, and AMD FirePro V7900 graphics.

These 3 things are trying to kill Linux containers

For nearly two years, Linux containers have dominated the world of enterprise IT, and for good reason — among others, they take on issues that virtualization simply cannot within application development and computing at scale and allow for the enterprise world to truly embrace concepts like devops and microservices (the Service Oriented Architecture dream from years gone by). That sound you hear is IT vendors stampeding towards the container bandwagon, but, as with every emerging tech trend, this isn’t always a good thing, as not everyone is walking the walk, regardless of what the business might actually say.
