Subject: Gnome Developers Should Start Listening To Linus Torvalds

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

When Linus Torvalds sneezes, the Linux world catches the cold. We often find Linus complaining about Gnome, no surprises you will complain about the flaws in the technology you use and not about the one you never touch. But when he says something it carries a lot of weight as he shares his experience as a user and not the father of Linux. His rants are also important as it gives voice to thousands of users who share the same plight but no one listens to their problem. So, what irked Linus this time?

Subject: Why I Dislike Ubuntu - Reason #37

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I got burned by Ubuntu again this morning - as if I needed to be reminded why I dislike it so much. I have a number of computers around here, and they all have a moderately complicated multi-boot configuration. Each of them has multiple Linux distributions installed, and most of them have some sort of Windows as well. I always use the openSuSE Legacy GRUB bootloader. The overall result is that it does what I want, and it's reliable. At least, it was reliable until I installed some Ubuntu updates this morning.

Creating your own Linux system can be a rather difficult thing to do and is not usually attempted by anyone other than advanced and power Linux users and veterans. Thankfully, Novell and SUSE has made the task very easy.

Subject: What Does Microsoft Have to Do to Earn FOSSers' Respect?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Microsoft may not have fully endeared itself into the FOSS rank and file with its recent attempt to hold hands with the open source community. Feelings are not unanimous regarding the commercial software giant's decision in April to front a company-owned subsidiary called "Microsoft Open Technologies."

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

But with F17 comes gnome3. And I knew I'd have trouble, but also knew that most of the worst cr@p could be fixed with extensions, and I'd used 3.4 on my laptop enough to know it should be all somewhat usable. But christ, it's a "one step forward, one step back" kind of thing. Change the font sizes? No can do - until you install the tweak tool, because the standard settings panel still doesn't do something as fundamental as that. Ok, I knew it used to be broken, I knew the work-around, but it's still broken?

Sure, you can use any of the fancy graphical tools for updating Linux or for adding new programs to the open source OS. But sometimes it's faster and more efficient to use brute force and a command line. For those days, you need to know these shell commands update and add programs to your Linux system. Behold.. the command line!
