Man when I tried to install AWN it grabbed all of Gnome3 and Unity and then made it where no DE or WM would work.

@xeekei: Don't encourage them. There's a lot of buntu bashing that goes on in these parts for some reason.

Sorry +2 seconds for sound and font.

And as i said thats the slow way. +rep to the one who can name the fast way.


@rookie, this has nothing tto do with ubuntu, or even and distro.

I know this has nothing to do with any distro but xeekei's post sounded like something that was going to start all that up again.

Anyway here's Kubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. I wonder why any computer I have with an Nvidia card adds another 200MB in RAM consumption...anyone know why?

lol

@rookie

there are good reasons to bash buntu. mind you, its better then windows and I suppose you could disable alot of the services, but out of the box its bloated, slow, and not that much easier then LMDE. personlly I can't think of one good reason to recommend buntu for anything there is nothing it can do that other distros can't do better/with less bloat


EDIT----

I do love that wallpaper though. mind posting it?

As well, LMDE provides 3rd party drivers whereas in Ubuntu you're dependent on Jockey to find them for you or left to your own devices. tongue.gif

So on the easy scale, LMDE takes the cake.

anyway,




openbox tongue.gif

have a bunch of things running ATM so ram useage is up around 500MB, but it starts at 135MBs, with virtualbox modules, automounting, GDM and boinc client. all in all pretty happy smile.gif backported kernal 3.2 but 2.6.32 is ready to go should anything happen.. still not going to move to testing yet
post #4138 of 7733
To be honest guys; I've yet to try out Mint so can't comment on it really. But I haven't found Kubuntu slow and bloated since they got KDE 4.7 and beyond going. Might be bloated in the install size (though can we really call 5GB that big when it is less than half the size of windows?).

But, the only difference I've ever noticed is between DEs not between distros(though I've haven't touched Ubuntu itself in 2 years). I can build a buntu from the ground up like Arch though it would probably be easier but I doubt I'd notice any performance difference with the same DE/WM. As for 3rd party drivers I'll have to give Mint a try I guess because I haven't found any hardware that didn't work in buntu through Jockey (though Intel's drivers do have me rather disappointed).

So, just because it's the hip thing to do, I think it's best we stop bashing buntu and rather just say there's trade offs for every method/distro. I mean hell we don't need a LFS or Gentoo guy coming in and bashing Archer's for being a bunch of "lazy users". tongue.gif

So what's a good progression from LMDE as a slightly less training wheels Distro? Debian Testing to keep a similar feel and the same repositories or is it better to dip into the deepend with something like Arch?

But there was no ( and still is no ) bashing until you came in talking about it. You asked why not use PearOS if the poster wanted a OS X look, we simply replied it's just as easy to skin his current distro. There was nothing that was related to Distro's or even anything even remotely suggesting distro bashing was about to happen, at least until you came in riled up over nothing.

My advice to you, distro bashing has been around since the inception and will continue to be. Don't take any distro bashing serious or personal. As you said a few posts above, don't encourage it, but you did just that, encouraged it. I don't take offense to people bashing Arch, I just take offense to people spreading false information or unproven rumors ( some of which is usually due to user incompetence ). But bashing alone is harmless and has been since the beginning.

Debian imo isn't much different than LMDE / Ubuntu's, while it doesn't give you every package to start with, it's still just as easy in terms of usage, but does force you to know a bit more of the command line. Arch also isn't all that hard once you figure out pacman ( really simple ) and the filesystem and where configs are located. Gentoo would be less training wheel'y than Arch but still not much after you learn the ports system they use.
