gentooexperimental.org: I've been busy collecting some really great stories from people using Gentoo in places that I really didn't expect. There are some gems like this one:

Does it come with includes or?

Software

blog.flameeyes.eu: Shared objects are, generally, a good thing because they allow different programs to share the same code in memory; this is why we consider shared libraries better than the static archives. Unfortunately, simply using, boilerplate, a shared object is a bad thing: you need to know what you’re doing.

For me, Gentoo is about *convenient* choice

Gentoo

draketo.de: It's often said, that Gentoo is all about choice, but that doesn't quite fit what it is for me. The highest ability to choose is Linux from scratch. What really distinguishes Gentoo for me is that it makes it convenient to choose.

thelinuxexperiment.com: After hearing about the recent MintCast mention of our experiment, I figured it was high time to post an update with what’s gone right and what’s been enraging about my experiences with Gentoo over the past month.

The size of the Gentoo tree

Gentoo

blog.flameeyes.eu: You might have noticed that I started working on cleaning up the tree (before I had a few problems with my system, but that’s for another day). Some people wondered whether that’s really going to make much difference, so I wanted to take a look.

My Love/Hate Relationship

Gentoo

obsidianprofile.com: Oh, Gentoo, how I really find myself hating you sometimes. Once upon a time, Gentoo Linux was a thriving community distro. These days, I've been finding it harder and harder to find solid answers.

Why Linux is so great?

Filed under
Linux
Gentoo

mihaimaga.wordpress: I’m using Linux since 2001 and it still amazes me day by day. After trying Red Hat, Mandrake, Debian, SuSE and many other flavors (yes, I do have a bag full of Linux distros CDs) I have chosen Gentoo as my main focus. It could be any other distribution, but that’s the advantage:

Rolling Distributions (or how I came to love Gentoo)

Filed under
Gentoo

mikanotoko.org: The concept of a rolling distribution is that there are no new releases. You install the base and from there you just keep your packages updated. Before I moved to Gentoo which is my current favorite distribution I was primarily a Slackware user.

Emacs & the obsessive email mongerer

I had already mentioned in passing here that I am using Emacs for a variety of tasks: outline, project management and planning with Org-Mode, IRC (go figure, my default email client on all my machines is Emacs’ ERC), notes editing or quick scribbling with the Scartch buffer (happens to me all day long), and regularly, albeit less frequently than in 2013, various editing of html pages, javascript and sometimes even Python when I dare to edit one or two things in Python scripts. A consequence of all these use cases is that I have Emacs open almost everyday on almost any of my machines. Read more

MIPS tempts hackers with Raspbery Pi-like dev board

Hard to choose between Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, and MinnowBoard Max? Now there’s another choice: the open source MIPS-based “Creator CI20″ dev board. In a bid to harness some of the energy and enthusiasm swirling around today’s open, hackable single board computers Imagination Technologies, licensor of the MIPS ISA, has unveiled the ISA’s counter to ARM’s popular Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black SBCs. These days, every processor vendor simply must have a community supported dev board in order to engage with the developer communities. (Incidentally, Intel’s is the MinnowBoard Max and AMD’s is the Gizmo.) Read more

Samsung announces the Gear S while LG officially unveils the G Watch R

Samsung announced yet another smartwatch, Samsung Gear S that runs Tizen and comes with a 3G wireless radio. I have seen some call this the Gear Note because it does have a long two inch curved Super AMOLED display. The Gear S has WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G radios and antennas inside so you can use the watch when your phone isn't handy. Turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation is powered by HERE. It has an integrated GPS chip and can be used for exercise, again without a phone connection. Read more
