So built a new machine, busy being a traitor to my own values...





Honestly just wanted something to set up quick that was normy friendly. Once I get my GPU out of my main computer though it'll get switched over as my main and the old one is getting donated redface.gif

Ok so Ubuntu 13.04 kept having issues with Compiz crashing on me so decided to move myself over to Mint and chose Mint 15 MATE and so far no crashes, so at least this computer will be usable to others in this house without having issues.

Keeping it pretty much stock though since, for the time being, it's basically just another random computer in my house. Also decided to seed it a bit until I decide to add it to my seedbox along with all of the others.



Other than the new computer, my old one hasn't changed. Still FreeBSD + XMonad as it's been. Same colour scheme too. Guess I finally settled on something I like. biggrin.gif

Well, enjoy it while a systemd free centos lasts. I think systemd is coming in RHEL 7, if not, then 8.

Honestly I'm not that bugged by systemd as a whole. I was merely bugged by the devs/admins reactions towards forum goers when they decided to force it upon Arch users instead of giving them the choice, which is basically what originally drew me to Arch ( choice ). The general lack of respect or even care for their community with replies such as "Just deal with it" and the like were disgusting. I adapted to systemd as for a simple system it makes the process quite easy, there were a few hiccups as showcased by Plan9's thread on systemd & advanced networking ( well, more advanced than your basic dhcp at least as that's when it started getting iffy ), but other than that it wasn't too bad. I do have a particular love for sysvinit / init scripts but I'm not one to... hate too much.

It is what it is, but the community has changed and isn't what I joined for anymore, so I'll gladly find another distro & community that is similar to that of Arch from 3+ years ago. But as I said a couple posts ago, busy being a traitor to my own values frown.gif

Mint 15 is looking good. Then again, anything called Olivia is bound to be good. tongue.gif

My last GF was named Olivia, she was good too. biggrin.gif

lol. I'm likewise still using LMDE despite being 'in the process of switching' to freebsd for several weeks. Might just break down and install Wheezy, maybe kfreebsd so I can chroot between a GNU userland and a BSD one. But, in the end, Mint and Ubuntu just require a little more work to work well. It's not easy, but I've ripped pulseaudio out of LMDE, cut down all the extra services, etc. etc. I find it kind of funny how many people install Mint or Ubuntu 'because it's easy' but for those of us who've used Linux for a while 'user friendly' actually means more work in the long run to get it how we like it.

For those of us that aren't biased to one way or another Ubuntu and Mint are easy if you follow the philosophy/mindset. Just like Arch, Slackware, and well..maybe not Gentoo or the BSDs would be if you follow their mindsets.

Ripping pulseaudio out of buntu/Mint is like grafting a packagemanager onto Slackware or not customizing any compiling options in Gentoo...you can do it...but it's kind of like "why?". Why do people always complain about choice and differences? I just don't understand that.

PS: Besides the philosophical reasons...what is wrong with Pulseaudio again? And since you know more than me (not sarcasm that is a fact) maybe you could share the extra services that people should be aware of so if they don't want them they have an easy reference.
