There Should Be Only One Distribution!

Filed under
Linux

I often read about there being yet another distribution, how they’re not needed, and of course, based on Ubuntu. At DistroWatch.com people have even told Ladislav Bodnar the site’s creator/owner that he shouldn’t allow all of these derivatives and have a stricter criteria for distributions listed at his site, on the waiting list or not. The last part I personally find insulting of people, telling someone how to do something that they pretty well pioneered that nobody had ever done on such a level before.

There’s a couple different groups of people that usually talk about this. What’s the first group’s biggest and pretty well only reason for this belief of too many distributions in our community? ‘It confuses new converts from other operating systems.’

What a pile of crap eh?




Stupid Crap

This is the same ding dong that posts crap on distrowatch! I wish someone would take a baseball bat to this idiot.

One Distro

There is just one distro, it's called Windows, everything else is a mere shadow of a rounding error.

Bwhahahahahahahaha.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
