Hey! That Ain't Right!

No Slackware?

I'm sad.

re: ain't right

OMG! How could I have forgotten Slackware? It was a decision to skip Debian, but I didn't consider slackware. ...and me a supposed fan.

But what I did this time was to basically use the top 10 from Distrowatch.com's Page Hit Ranking, but replacing Debian with Other so I could keep my choice list down to 10.

well there's the problem

you based your choices on the work of an over rated fanboy site.

Your original work far exceeds theirs Susan, make them follow you, not the other way around.

oops

oops

re: ain't right

What? No Debian?

I'm still sad. Wink

P.S. srlinuxx... it's great to be here. I've been meaning to sign on an account here for ages, just keeps slipping my swiss cheese brain. I'm in now, though. I think I'll feature your site on my blog today, actually. Regards, ~Eric, the Nocturnal Slacker

re: ain't right

I'm sad too about Debian and Slackware.

I've voted for Arch as it is my favorite one, but my second fav. is Slackware and my third is Debian. All the rest start to share places below this point.

But my second and third option not here?. Anyway doing this kind of polls will always make someone sad, it is almost impossible to put all the list, and a poll with 50 options.. Well might not look too good either.

Great site Susan, and I like yours too, Nocturnal Slacker.

Thank you, Guillermo! Your

Thank you, Guillermo! Your Linux Operating System blog has been a favorite of mine for quite a while. Smile

Yay ArchLinux!

Also lol @ fake PCLOS votes.

Edit:. I take that back. There is always a chance all PCLOS users on earth actually voted here.

Hits on DW don't matter. When

Hits on DW don't matter. When it comes to the best Linux OS, it's PCLOS!

Once you try ArchLinux, there is no turning back.

re: big P cheat

Yaw be stuffing the ballot box!

In fairness, everybody run to your favorite's forum and tell them to come vote too.

So

I should head on over to Debian forum and tell them to come here and vote for other?

I don't see that going over to well.

Might make a bigger fuss than it's worth. heh heh.

re: So

Yes, I feel bad I left Debian out. Shan't happen again.

I'm just givin you a hard time

I'm just givin you a hard time. I don't get wound up about these things anymore. I just keep using my top tried and true and let popularity polls come and go.

but, just in case I wasn't obvious enough the first time, I voted other because my top preferred is (1)Debian. then comes (2)CentOS and (3)opensuse and yes, PCLOS still lands in at a solid number 4 for me.

Isn't that how lots of these

Hey - re: big P cheat

Isn't that how lots of these things get passed on by using Forums and other social media.

If that is what happened in this case I would say that the people on that forum care about their distro and show pride in it by voting for it.

BTW, I voted for another distro (1 of 3 votes at present Sad

Stuffing!

Nothing wrong with a little stuffing for Thanksgiving ya know! Big Grin

Hmm...

Don't know whether or not I should be surprised that Debian didn't make it onto this list.

Surprised!

Uselessd: A Stripped Down Version Of Systemd

The boycotting of systemd has led to the creation of uselessd, a new init daemon based off systemd that tries to strip out the "unnecessary" features. Uselessd in its early stages of development is systemd reduced to being a basic init daemon process with "the superfluous stuff cut out". Among the items removed are removing of journald, libudev, udevd, and superfluous unit types. Read more

Android One: Let us fill you in on Google’s big game

India is now the world’s third largest Internet market and “on a bullet train to become the second”. But even when we become the second with around 300 million Internet users, India would still have over 75 per cent of the population that has no access to this so-called information superhighway. It is this chunk of population that will form the “next billion” which companies like Nokia, and now Google, has been talking about. And it is this next billion that Google thinks will line up to buy and good smartphone that is also affordable. Read more

Mesa Gets Closer To Having OpenGL 4.0 Tessellation Support

A significant patch-set was published on Saturday night that implements the driver-independent bits of OpenGL 4's ARB_tessellation_shader extension inside Mesa. The tessellation support has been one of the big pieces missing from Mesa's OpenGL 4 implementation and fortunately it's getting close to mainline. Chris Forbes of Intel published fifty-six patches this weekend that implement the driver-independent portions of the extension inside Mesa. Of course, the driver portions still need to follow for it to be useful. Read more

Small Console Menu Utilities

One of the great strengths of Linux is the whole raft of weird and wonderful open source utilities. That strength does not simply derive from the functionality they offer, but from the synergy generated by using them together, sometimes in conjunction with applications. The Unix philosophy spawned a "software tools" movement which focused on developing concise, basic, clear, modular and extensible code that can be used for other projects. This philosophy remains an important element for many Linux projects. Good open source developers writing utilities seek to make sure the utility does its job as well as possible, and work well with other utilities. The goal is that users have a handful of tools, each of which seeks to excel at one thing. Some utilities work well on their own. This article looks at four tiny utilities that offer menu facilities. They get virtually zero coverage in the Linux press, so you may not have heard of them before, but they are well crafted and might just fit the bill. Read more
