Short bio: Computer Scientist, FOSS supporter (read more)
Tux Machines (TM)-specific
How many times have people accused me of “Microsoft Hater”, “Linux Zealot”, “Linux Unwashed”? Comments like these (and many more vulgar ones) are often thrown by a Microsoft advocate with no argument to any person who dares to suggest there is an alternative to their products. Its easy to dismiss a point of view with a single insult and the practice has been going on for years (and will for many more to come).
The purpose of this article is to report on a Linux distro and ask the question what would Linux users do?
I reported recently that I had been trying Elive and that due to the apparent lack of continuation of Wolvix (thats now changed) I was trying out many distro’s for my new distro of choice on the main rig. With that in mind I eagerly downloaded Elive, from the professional site and the nice trailer it had me sold on at least a download and test. And test I did. The LiveCD functioned very speedily and was a very solid, reliable piece of software.
