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!

Hmm...

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

Surprised!

Having offended everyone else in the world, Linus Torvalds calls own lawyers a 'nasty festering disease'

Coding curmudgeon Linus Torvalds has gone off on yet another rant: this time against his own lawyers and free software activist Bradley Kuhn. On a mailing list about an upcoming Linux conference, a discussion about whether to include a session on the GPL that protects the open source operating system quickly devolved in an angry rant as its founder piled in.

  • 5 Cool Unikernels Projects
    Unikernels are poised to become the next big thing in microservices after Docker containers. Here’s a look at some of the cool things you can do with unikernels. First, though, here’s a quick primer on what unikernels are, for the uninitiated. Unikernels are similar to containers in that they let you run an app inside a portable, software-defined environment. But they go a step further than containers by packaging all of the libraries required to run the app directly into the unikernel.
  • Cedrus Is Making Progress On Open-Source Allwinner Video Encode/Decode
    The developers within the Sunxi camp working on better Allwinner SoC support under Linux have been reverse-engineering Allwinner's "Cedar" video engine. Their project is being called Cedrus with a goal of "100% libre and open-source" video decode/encode for the relevant Cedar hardware. The developers have been making progress and yesterday they published their initial patches that add a V4L2 decoder driver for the VPU found on Allwinner's A13 SoC.
  • Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 Milestone 3 Released For Linux Benchmarking
  • Calibre 2.65.1 eBook Viewer Adds Driver for Kobo Aura One and Aura 2 Readers
    Kovid Goyal released today, August 26, 2016, a new maintenance update of his popular, cross-platform, and open-source Calibre e-book viewer, converter and library management tool. Calibre 2.65 was announced earlier, and it looks like it's both a feature and bugfix release that adds drivers for the Kobo Aura One and Kobo Aura Edition 2 ebook readers, along with a new option to the Kobo driver to allow users to ignore certain collections on their ebook reader. The list of new features continues with support for right-to-left text and tables to the DOCX Input feature, as well as the implementation of a new option to allow users to make searching case-sensitive. This option can be found and enabled in the "Searching" configuration section under Preferences.
  • Calamares 2.4 Universal Installer Framework Polishes Existing Functionality
    A new stable version of the Calamares universal installer framework used by various GNU/Linux distributions as default graphical installer has been released with various improvements and bug fixes. Calamares 2.4 is now the latest build, coming two months after the release of the previous version, Calamares 2.3, which introduced full-disk encryption support. However, Calamares 2.4 is not as big as the previous update as it only polished existing functionality and address various annoying issues reported by users.
  • RcppArmadillo 0.7.400.2.0
    Another Armadillo 7.* release -- now at 7.400. We skipped the 7.300.* serie release as it came too soon after our most recent CRAN release. Releasing RcppArmadillo 0.7.400.2.0 now keeps us at the (roughly monthly) cadence which works as a good compromise between getting updates out at Conrad's sometimes frantic pace, while keeping CRAN (and Debian) uploads to about once per month. So we may continue the pattern of helping Conrad with thorough regression tests by building against all (by now 253 (!!)) CRAN dependencies, but keeping release at the GitHub repo and only uploading to CRAN at most once a month.
