    Re: Making linux better

    I disagree with the definitions you cited, and I wonder that someone who might have taught at a university might choose wikipedia for a definition when it's easier to get a creditable and valid...

    Also regarding product placement: It's not always paid, and doesn't always happen with permission from the company selling the product.

    Sometimes the scene in a movie shows a product by accident....

    Re: Making linux better

    OK well it's up to you, but as far as I'm concerned it's the same thing as saying nothing at all.



    So therefore all advertising must be Microsoft-style? Is that an assertion or a thesis,...

    Re: Making linux better

    I learned about Linux because somebody showed it to me about 5 years after it came into existence. That someone was a trusted coworker and fellow computer programmer. I think that expecting the...

    Re: Migrating from RAID 5 to RAID 0

    Why raid0? That's Russian roulette. If any disk breaks you lose everything in all disks.

    If all your data fits in raid5 then make the new array raid1. At that point every disk holds identical...

    @ian-weisser,

    Still hoping to make the advertising discussion happen. How is somebody going to choose something they never heard of?

    Advertising with truth can only be a good thing. ...

    Re: Making linux better

    I'd be curious to hear what your problems are. Especially when you say "some" advertising. I have problems with some advertising too, but that doesn't mean all advertising is bad.

    Re: upstart, systemd, Canonical and Debian

    Actually it's one of the reasons I don't like Debian. I'd rather they be more up-to-date and decisive, and intelligent while they're at it.

    Re: upstart, systemd, Canonical and Debian

    Really, about neither. The kernel is an interface between the hardware and a standard API. It really does nothing much else.

    X is a windowing interface: An APi for an app to specify drawing...

    Re: Making linux better

    Oh yeah. Don't compare it to Windows or Mac. You can say it's an operating system like Windows or Mac, but different. But don't say "just like..." or "better than..." or you'll lose them.

    @ian-wesser,

    advertising vs salesmanship: I don't see any problem with advertising. Linux is largely not popular because nobody advertises it, and when they do they fall into the comparison...

    Re: upstart, systemd, Canonical and Debian

    I think there's a lot to the argument. Systemd might become good enough in the future but I don't think it is now. The single point of failure argument is huge IMO, and the complexity of systemd...

    While I can't say that what you're saying is wrong, I think it's a really twisted way to say it, at least from the perspective of a "normal" person.

    I think this is an oversimplification of the...

    That's a really good point. Each distro has a philosophy, a set of goals that they want to achieve.

    The fact that you're asking this with only 2 posts on this forum is a concern.

    [SOLVED] Some links open a new tab automatically.

    A lot of links (Quick Links for example) automatically open a new tab in the browser now.

  21. Re: Warning: 100 Mbit ethernet switches are still prevalent in small towns!

    @nadrach,

    I remember this time. In my case it was Linux and IBM A/IX and IBM OS/400. I also remember when 1Mb/s phone lines were being used even in the office.

    I've never set up a VPN on my...

    @t0p, Come on. I never implied that going to wired ethernet was the only thing I had to do for security, that's silly. All I was saying is that with wireless anyone with a wifi adapter and a little...

  24. Re: Warning: 100 Mbit ethernet switches are still prevalent in small towns!

    Didn't know that, but it really makes no significant difference IMO. If they're that close, there's hardly any reason to use wired except security.

    This is crazy to me. Why sell obsolete...
  25. Re: Warning: 100 Mbit ethernet switches are still prevalent in small towns!

    An interesting side note: 100 mbps Internet is available here too.

    Based on their 30 mbps service, which typically delivers 35/6 rates, it's feasible that you could saturate your ethernet switch...
