So, Amzo, what is the benefit of pacman towards pkgng?
Pacman is far superior to foolBSD's shitty little pkgng which is a total copy of apt-get. pkgng is at useless as BSD devs and users. Or should i say dev/users cos only the devs are users of BSD and even then they rarely use it. instead they use Mac OS X more often.
One essential package that needs to work first before I migrate is "schroot". That way I could use a static "core" os and then seamlessly run a dynamic Arch in schroot (including X11 stuff) for big and complex stuff that would be horrible to try to build statically.
Ps. Oh by the way - if I ever had a say about a mascot I would vote for a Mr. Potato variant of Tux, but perhaps I am the only one that would appreciate such a pun Ds.
It's not exiciting, it's shit. Just like the other BSDs.
I have been reading phoronix a while now and only decided to register in order to comment on this thread as bsd vs linux seems to be a magnet for people with nothing better to do than rant.
Please don't be disheartened at all, the whole point of open source is that a person can experiment to their hearts content. As someone who is about to release an open source project, I'm currently breaching myself for a lot of flak that people are going to send my way for what it is.
I've been using arch Linux a while now and bsd has always been a blip on my radar but could never bring myself to take the dive and experiment; with your distro to be,I think I will try it out so thank you for your efforts and soldier on.
P.s. Things are certainly different from the olden days, now everyone has to feel correct and in doing so correct other people if not in agreement.just remember there are a few billion people in the world,a handful who don't get off their own butt can't spoil it.
