10 Reasons Why I Love Sabayon Linux

Filed under
Linux

I’ve been with Sabayon Linux for over a week now and it has already made it to my top Linux distribution list. Its speed and convenience is unparalleled by most of the mainstream Linux distributions. And besides Gentoo I have never seen a Linux distribution with such a large and complete collection of software in its repositories. But enough of my ranting and raving; let’s get on to the reasons why I love this Linux distribution more than the rest:

1. You can copy it over directly to a USB drive, no unetbootin required (dd if=sabayon.iso of=/dev/sdb).

2. It’s rolling release, so only one installation is required for packages to stay up to date.

Why Linux Installers Need to Add Security Features

Twelve years ago, Linux distributions were struggling to make installation simple. Led by Ubuntu and Fedora, they long ago achieved that goal. Now, with the growing concerns over security, they need to reverse directions slightly, and make basic security options prominently available in their installers rather than options that users can add manually later. At the best of times, of course, convincing users to come anywhere near security features is difficult. Too many users are reluctant even to add features as simple as unprivileged user accounts or passwords, apparently preferring the convenience of the moment to reducing the risk of an intrusion that will require reinstallation, or a consultation with a computer expert at eighty dollars an hour.
