Im starting to like Linux - Page 2

post #11 of 22
P.S. error10, nice avatar, I am actually working not too far from that entrance, this summer

I use linux almost solely for development, which occupies most of my time, but for any graphic design / real word processing, besides typesetting with LaTex/Kile, I prefer Windows. I am glad you have given it a chance! Go grab the new Fedora distro

Well the kernel was more or less designed because of some philosophy differences?

GNU requires a kernel. There is an "in-house" kernel (GNU Hurd), but after more than 20 years it still hasn't had a production-ready release.

his middle name is benedict...why couldn't they have called it benedictux!

welcome OP to the free world!

i just took a look at my uptime, 3 weeks, 4 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes, that was the last time i rebooted, can't recall the last time i "needed" to go into windows!

and reading some of that message board about the first post of pre-linux, linus seems sorta a dick!

I didn't get that impression. I thought he was just being blatantly honest about its shortcomings.

Linus can come off a bit arrogant sometimes, but he created the linux kernel, so he's allowed to be.

The concept of The Hurd microkernel is absolutely epic. It's asymmetrical and had on-demand module loading way back at the beginning while being designed for an absolutely Spartan minimal footprint for extreme speed. However it is a nightmare to debug because it's like Alice in the Looking Glass or Quantum Mechanics.... things change just from viewing or measuring. That's enough to drive any coder to whack-job and it apparently worked on Stallman. Linus was more pragmatic and even states for the record that he's a nasty fscker.

But we love 'em both anyway

hell yeah, F microsoft. Gaming support today is actually better than you'd think, but still not ideal... I suspect within 3-5 years it will be identical. Once I found $ rdesktop I stopped needing to go in there.

To me, whats really amazing is how smart those guys at bell labs were. The design principles they laid down are so orthogonal and are really ahead of their time. It's hard for me to understand how they got everything so correct way back then. http://www.bell-labs.com/history/unix/


Everything microsoft originally did was a half assed rip off of unix. They couldn't make identical features, so they had to try and capture the same thing but make it different somehow; and if you differ from something as correct as that as much as they did, it adds up to nonsense crap. The fact that microsoft software actually works as well as it does now given the harebrained nature of the whole OS blows my mind even more. <3 regedit
