    I've had many times problems with booting from a logical partition (it seems not all machines support this correctly), so I think it's better to have at least /boot as primary. Though I learned that...

    I've been working as a software tester on a couple of py2 based projects, they were webapps using django, twisted, etc... a typical testcase was: input japanese characters into a textfield, submit...

    Of course I do:
    - utf8 - finally, maybe in the English speaking world this isn't a big deal, but in every eastern European country, that has it's own special characters in the alphabet, this is a...

    Based on my friends comments there seems to be severe problems with catalyst and high end gpus on Linux. They had HD79xx and later R290 and got far lower performance than me on HD7770. So it seems...

    They do change really fast, I agree, but on the other hand recently many major distros started putting out some kind of long term support releases, so one can use that. And nearly all of them (except...

    I wish that was true, instead nearly every week I hear at work that some new project is started in py2 because stuff like Selenium or some other lib doesn't support py3. There might not be that many...

    The whole problem with python3 adoption is the libs. A very high amount of libs still have not moved to py3, and are keeping the world on py2, make dev write apps for py2, write more libs for py2...

    Games/game engines/real time 3d graphics always are a special case. But there's a boatload of other software, often specialized software, that doesn't get new versions or ports, costs a lot of money...

    If they would, then they'd end up the way that alpha and ppc did - in history :-P. The x86 compatibility was the thing that made amd64 win over intels 64bit variant. Backward compatibility is the...

    But a lot later cpus were not, P4 is not the sole point of this discussion ;-).

    No, that are different things. Those people already have done that, they have a decent amount of ram already. So it's 0 investment vs 100-200 investment.

    Probably nearly none. But given the time they are around, most of them have upgraded the amount of memory already, so a better question is "how many of currently active 32bit cpu machines have over...

    Tinycore, Puppy, and other low-end targeted distros are not systems for n00b users. I wouldn't give such OS to e.g. my parents. A normal distro, with e.g. xfce + Firefox on the other hand is very...

    Oh, come on, does everything nowadys have to be specific to what a person uses/does and needs multiple citations, facts, links, etc...? I'm not demanding anything, I'm just stating that dropping...

    About my comment from the 1st page:
    1. I don't use Fedora myself, but when 1 distro talks about dropping support for something, then many will follow in the near future, that probably won't leave...

    "die already" - well thank you very much, my atom netbook with 2GB of ram works still pretty ok today :-P. Same thing for numerous late pentium4 era machines - with memory upgrades they are pretty...

    Creating virtual machines is usually a pretty good and useful way to have multiple distros on hand to make builds, test them, etc. Though not in this case, cause VMs don't work good with 3d...

    There's also stuff like multimedia codecs, fonts, etc to keep in mind too. As for libs - having too many dependencies is your enemy. For desktop apps sticking with something like Qt solves most...

    If a distro is so old that it's repos aren't available any more then nobody sane is using it anyway. As for lib versions - that is a project planning problem - you should stick to the lib features...

    Fixed that for you:
    Compile your program (on a sufficiently old distro version), pack the binary + the dependent libs into a zip or whatever. Include a simple script to run the program:
