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!

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!

Hmm...

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

Surprised!

Mozilla Wants to Save the Open Web, but is it Too Late?

Again, I think this is absolutely correct. But what it fails to recognise is that one of the key ways of making the Web medium "less free and open" is the use of legally-protected DRM. DRM is the very antithesis of openness and of sharing. And yet, sadly, as I reported back in May, Mozilla has decided to back adding DRM to the Web, starting first with video (but it won't end there...) This means Mozilla's Firefox is itself is a vector of attack against openness and sharing, and undermines its own lofty goals in the Open Web Fellows programme. Read more

Chakra-2014.09-Euler released

The Chakra team is happy to announce the first release of the Chakra Euler series, which will follow the 4.14 KDE releases. A noticeable change in this release is the major face-lift of Kapudan, which now gives the option to users to enable the [extra] repository during first boot so they can easily install the most popular GTK-based applications. Kudos to george2 for the development and Malcer for the artwork. Read more

What Linux User Groups Can Do for FOSS

On a monthly basis — on the last Saturday each month — members of the Felton Linux Users Group drag their collective butts out of bed at the crack of 9:30, or possibly earlier, and make their way from various points in the sleepy little town just northeast of Santa Cruz to the solar-powered Felton Fire Station for their meeting. It’s a good group with core regulars hosting meetings since the Lindependence Project held three open houses to introduce the town to Linux in the summer of 2008. In those open houses, various distros like Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu and Mandriva, along with hardware maker ZaReason, and even an open-source stuffed penguin maker called Open Animals based in Phoenix, appeared to show their wares to the curious in the San Lorenzo Valley area. Around 600 people appeared over the three days and more than 300 live CDs went out the door. Read more
