    Very nice!

    Well put!
    I still wonder why the FSF marks Gentoo as a "proprietary" distribution, given it's the only distribution I know allowing to set licenses globally and package-specific.
    For instance, if...

    Almost

    I should've made clearer that I was talking about general speed-benefits. In regard to tweaking USE-flags, it definitely improves startup-times and given most software handles things with internal...

    CFLAGS don't speed up that much! It's all about the USE-flags instead, which can bring around 5-10% improvement.
    Of course, if you benchmark Gentoo against Ubuntu and include the same features...

    You're wrong

    To be fair, given Gentoo offers a wide range of configurations, it's hard to benchmark it.
    Now, concerning speed, you can't compare Gentoo with Sabayon and Calculate, given both are based on...

    Gentoo FTW

    What about GENTOO? It'd pwn them all!
  6. Efi stub

    EFI Stub in the Kernel is still _the_ way to go with Macs. The only problem is that it's not well-documented.

    Some people just don't get it the first time.

    'nuff said

    One word: PID1. Enough said.

    Thanks my friend! I'm glad to see there are still people around with common sense and good knowledge about it ;).

    Have a nice day!
  10. Good example

    That's EXACTLY the point! Well put and a good example.
  11. Nice statistics

    Using Gentoo, Libreoffice would pull in around 500 packages for me. I am on an extremely minimal system and enjoy using abiword and gnumeric, because they are what I'd consider suckless...
  12. Here's the idea

    Sure, I could do that while asleep ;). But I don't want to pollute my system with the deps it pulls in.

    No, it's not about Qt or its license. Qt is fine ;).

    I am talking about KDE's software bloat.

    Trolls keep trolling.

    No, I am just not as ignorant as you appear to be.
  15. Good one!

    ;)

    Thanks for suggesting me a part of the cancerous disease KDE-programs are. Hell, this pulls in more dependencies than LibreOffice, lol.
  16. Right!

    So, give me an example for a free program which does in fact read odp-files and is not an office-suite.

    Yes, I agree with you on that one. I prefer the open document formats over Microsoft's, but...

    I get your point, but PDF-viewers are much simpler pieces of software than an office-suite.
    There are positive examples like gnumeric and abiword, but we don't have a sufficient counterpart for...
  18. No!

    LibreOffice may be free software, but dude, is it heavy!
    Google Docs and the other viewers are SaaSS's, not too good.

    Yo, I have to ask what speaks against just publishing it as a PDF. Hell, why...
  19. No shit, Sherlock!

    Thanks, dude, I wouldn't have ever found that out myself!

    Now, imagine a world where not everyone has LibreOffice on their computers. That's reality.
  20. PDF anyone?

    It's a no-go not to publish slides as PDF nowadays...
    Still, a very interesting topic!
