    You can use IRC, Github Issues, and email to communicate. You don't have to join Google Plus.

    You have it backwards. pacman uses just one, xbps uses six to do the same thing. I looked, and if people routinely break pacman into pacman-search, pacman-db, pacman-install, etc... I can't find...

    I thought that too, but the following indicates to me it's not a re-spin:
    1. pacman has similar features to xbps-install, xbps-query, xbps-rindex, xbps-reconfigure, xbps-remove, and xbps-pkgdb. ...

    Sorry to keep bombing the thread, I tried to edit the previous post to add detail but ran out of time.

    '-Syu' means Sync (S), assume yes (y), update (u), so it's a reasonable mnemonic for both...

    What threw me off is that both 'pacman' and 'xbps-install' use the input flag '-Syu' for downloading and installing all available package updates. That immediately made me suspicious that XBPS is a...

    I asked on the Void Google Plus Community, https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MichaelSwierczek/posts/Bb9rQQhvgVA?cfem=1
    Response quoted (I don't think that's a violation of terms of service, but if it...

    Well I'll be damned. Thanks for posting that, I had never read about pacman before. I have pretty expensive experience with Debian derivatives and Red Hat derivatives, but I never took a Linux...

    From what I understand, installed package tracking is universal.

    Version roll-back is not common because it makes dependency management more complex and requires the application developer to...

    I had a little bit of a headache installing it, and I'm a moderately experienced Linux user. So I wouldn't recommend it for newbies as much as, for example, Xubuntu.

    You can run commands with...

    Arguably the site owner might be mentioning Void for the sake of advertising revenue driven by the systemd flamewars. But Void itself is actually pretty cool. The author wrote his own package...

    The project has clearly been improving.

    The most recent version of Virt-Manager I've used isn't as slick as the VirtualBox in terms of user interface, but nice new features get added each time. I first used it on Ubuntu 10.04, and it was...

    I believe the architecture profoundWHALE was describing is when you use a relatively small amount of C code to write a scripting language interpreter like Perl or Bash, and then write the rest of...

    Agreed. I think the concerns that systemd will be difficult to secure are valid. On the other hand, if it's in use in Debian, Fedora, Red Hat, Ubuntu, and OpenSuse then that's a lot of eyes on it...

    If you're right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    Paul Frederick,

    If systemd wrecks the mainstream Linux distributions, then Slackware and Gentoo and forks of Debian and Ubuntu and Fedora that abandon systemd will become more popular than the...

    I forget who shared this video, but it was quite good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-97qqUHwzGM The first few minutes are generalities and comedy, if you want to skip to the meaty points of the...

    I agree that many modern 'necessities' are nothing of the sort. My point is that when people using those inessential necessities get burned, they generally don't take a lot of abuse from random...

    To be fair, people's credit card information gets stolen all of the time and nobody says "Just stop surfing on the web.". People's email addresses get hacked and nobody says "Why were you dumb...

    Sorry, it already does use all 6 cores. I'm guessing a similar era Core i5 would do better, for all I know it would not.

    I actually use the open source driver for my AMD video card. I'm pretty...

    My employer picks the work laptop, so I don't have to make a choice there. I've been contemplating an APU for a personal laptop - I know there's a big performance hit, but how often will I really...
