    FreeBSD, Plan B for systemd refugees

    As soon as FreeBSD 10.1 is released (probably mid-November), I'm taking the plunge. I'm getting rid of Ubuntu because of the imminent arrival of the mandatory systemd virus (Note: Ubuntu still uses...
  2. Subject to change?

    DNF is expected to replace Yum in Fedora 22 but that is still subject to change.

    That hint of doubt worries me. I'm not currently using Fedora. I've used it before, and found that Yum is just too...

    Fedora developers agree with me

    I think it was about a week or two ago when I made a brief comment about how I liked Fedora but was sticking with Debian because:

    1) Some important packages I use are not in the Fedora...
  4. Wasted resources?

    Of all the various complaints about Ubuntu and Mark Shuttleworth (most of which I think are petty), Mir strikes me as the worst. Mark has never given a good reason why we need Mir, and it just looks...
  5. I would love to use Fedora if only...

    I would love to use Fedora as my desktop distro of choice, if only their package management was better. Fedora has many admirable qualities, like state-of-the-art security (ie Selinux), they were...

    Enlightenment 19

    I'm not a big fan of Gnome 3, but I'll give it another look when Wayland goes mainstream. However, I'm very interested in Enlightenment 19 which is supposed to offer full Wayland support.

  7. silly reason

    That's a bit like saying "I won't use Linux because Linus Torvalds listens to punk music, and I don't like punk music." (Actually, I have no idea what kind of music Linus likes, nor do I care).
  8. Linux vs Windows performance

    I'm running Linux right now on an old ASUS eeePC with 2GB RAM, and it's way faster than the Windows 7 (which I've wiped) that came pre-installed on the machine.

    If you've been using something...
  9. I suffered through it to help the site, but...

    OK, I managed to make it through to the end of the survey, and I hope that little effort on my part helps out Phoronix (since I enjoy this site tremendously). But wow, how dumb can these...
  10. Odroid

    I have an Odroid-X, which I purchase last year. It's now been superseded by the Odroid-XU ($139):

  11. Hoping for Wayland

    Sorry to hear about X.org's security issues, but hopefully it will provide even more impetus to get Wayland installed as the default graphics system as soon as possible.

    The big move from X to...

    Disillusioned with Pulseaudio

    If you'd asked me a week ago, I'd say this is great news. But about three days ago, I finally had it with Pulseaudio and purged it from my Debian system. I now rely on Alsa for sound.

    Let me say...

    I just learned something

    I feel like an idiot. I've been a Linux user for about a dozen years, and pretty good at the command line so keyboard shortcuts should be second nature to me. But thanks to this brief thread I just...
  14. Reluctantly, I have to agree. Probably nothing...

    Reluctantly, I have to agree. Probably nothing would be accomplished by the debate.

    I used to be an enthusiastic Ubuntu user, but I've moved back to Debian and will mostly likely stay with it....
  15. Odroid-XU vs Odroid-U2

    I own one of the older Odroid boards, the Odroid-X, which was subsequently superseded by the X2 and now the XU.

    Currently, Odroid sells two boards, the XU and U2. The XU is almost twice the price...
  16. Yes, ARM has been around for a long time, but...

    Yes, ARM has been around for a long time, but only recently has it gotten fast enough to be used to power a practical computer (as opposed to a cell phone). Not long ago, I bought an ARM-based...
  17. Why is Google Earth still 32-bit?

    I agree that 64-bit is better. But one app that I really need to work is Google Earth, and for some reason it just doesn't want to install in 64-bit. Does anyone have a clue why that is? I've...
  18. Mir-Wayland compatibility?

    There is a question I've been meaning to ask, and this is as good a time as any...

    Is it possible that applications could be written so that they run on both Mir and Wayland? I don't mean via XMir...
  19. Problem is XMir, not Mir

    Too much hyperbole in that statement. The Lubuntu developer was expressing his concern that XMir was too much of a performance hit on LXDE, so for now they'll stick with X.Org. He didn't say anything...

    Goodbye Ubuntu/Lubuntu, I switched back to Debian

    When Ubuntu first went with this Unity thing, I did give it a try but wasn't all that impressed. No matter, there was always Xubuntu and Lubuntu. I finally settled on Lubuntu, and used it for about...
