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.

  • A history about Gtk+, Vulkan and Wayland
    A few weeks ago, I was curious to test Gtk+ 4. I know it has some awsome features like OpenGL rendering, major cleanups and other hot stuff, but didn’t have the chance to check it out until then. I was mostly excited about Vulkan. I know both of my laptop’s graphic cards support Vulkan. It’s a hybrid Intel Broadwell G2 + NVidia GeForce 920M, although I don’t use the latter because Linux sucks hard with Dual GPU. Downloaded the latest Gtk+ source, compiled and… nothing. Immediate segmentation fault. Yay! What a great chance to get involved with the next major Gtk+ version development!
  • GNOME Developer On GTK4: State-of-the-Art of Toolkit Support
    GNOME developer Georges Stavracas has shared his thoughts on the state of the GTK4 tool-kit with the recent work involving a Vulkan renderer, including which also now works on Wayland. Georges Stavracas was excited to try the current state of GTK4 development but initially hit a segmentation fault. But after overcoming that, he was successful in running GTK4 on Wayland and the widgets being rendered by Vulkan. He commented on his blog, "May not be as exciting, since there are no new visible features but… damn, it’s Gtk+ being rendered with Vulkan on Wayland. It’s basically the state-of-the-art of toolkit support right now. Even better, the absolute majority of applications will gain this for free once they port to Gtk+ 4 series."
