Still dual-booting with Windows 7. I've been running Fedora 16 on my laptop since it was released. I just tried installing Debian Wheezy, but grub wouldn't install (known issue and quickly tired of trying the various workarounds). Next was giving it a go with Fedora 19. It installed ok, but could not get the 310 nVidia drivers installed. Lastly, I gave Mint 15 a shot, and it's been like butter. Their new proprietary drivers applet made installing the nVidia drivers a single click process. Still on the fence with Cinnamon, but I had been thinking about switching to Fluxbox, anyway.

I think Docker is supposed to be container agnostic, so it should work against LXC, Linux-VServer and OpenVZ (which I do use on production systems already). I think the point of Docker was to make images portable regardless of what container you run and to make the containers lighter weight so you can run them on the application level (where as even FreeBSD ezjails will have some degree of OS duplication)

Hmm...I know why I as a "buntu" user change just about every 6 months but why do the other guys? I think I'd keep Arch or Slackware for as long as I could. But that might just be because it takes me so long to get those setup.

downloading this to try

http://vsido.org/index.php?topic=12.0

I was wrong, it's not the #! guy, it's the #! forum moderator that put it together when #! dropped support for xfce. The selling point is that it comes with openbox, fluxbox and xfce all set up with all the basic but 'friendly' stuff like wifi and that out of the box but under 150MB in any environment. The page doesn't seem to say if the 150MBs is 32-bit or 64-bit, but looking over their choices for tools (such as ceni for wireless) It could even be 64-bit, which is (of course) the version I downloaded. Going to give it a shot anyway.

Most distributions these days use a dual architecture.

All the ones I've tried recently have been, sans Debian ( had to enable 32bit on that one ).

you mean multi-arch? yeah I enabled that last time I had debian. I mean in the more traditional sense, like the kernel or what most of the major software is built for.

I re-install xubuntu every 6 months when i break something by running the daily build.

There's two different things here. What Shrak is talking about is ISOs that ship both i686 and AMD64 packages for install. What you're talking about is additional repositories for AMD64 systems that pull lib32 libraries so that 32bit apps can use 32bit APIs rather than ISOs that have both a 32bit and 64bit OS.
