    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu, Arch, Chakra?

    If you intend to try out Chakra, I also recommend you try out Arch.
    Arch has the advantage of top-notch documentation and quite an active, established community.

    Re: most confusing linux distro

    I am confused by distributions which are based on other distributions.
    For instance, why use a distribution based on Arch, when you can simply use Arch, and customize it to your own needs while...

    Hardware: I view many of the Mac offerings over the years as mostly proprietary bricks.
    Software: iMovie was brilliant when I used it.

    Re: The best OS ever

    Plan 9 from Bell Labs and OpenBSD are the highest quality operating systems.
    Not quite sure what is meant by 'best' in this instance.

    I don't use either system, but Debian is a tried-and-true, high quality system with a good, solid stable branch.

    BTW, tar.gz is a combination of a tar archive further compressed using the gzip algorithm.

    Re: Arch

    If you do decide to try it, have fun and enjoy. 'Read the manual' and you should be good to go.
    Also, if you have trouble, be sure and register at the forums and stop in for some assistance.

    Re: Ubuntu is the new Linux Standard Base

    'Package for Ubuntu'?
    Distribution developers do the packaging for their own repositories.
    This in itself makes this whole issue a moot point.

    Re: Ubuntu is the new Linux Standard Base

    Agreed completely.
    With open source, the distro is a non-issue. Even binary blobs are distro-agnostic, only relying on kernel version and hardware spec.

    Overall though, it inarguably keeps GNU/Linux both fragmented and marginalized, which is a bad thing, depending...

    *sigh* revdep-rebuild is a tool which was implemented to address a common issue inherent to source-based systems.
