    Happy Hollidays!

    Isn't it the most absolutely wonderful thing to see an old machine, long since "forgotten" by mainstream OS vendors, brought back to life with a bang by an OS like Slackware or one of the BSD's? I really love seeing my 400 MHz UltraSPARC serving network requests on my home network.

    And Happy Holidays to you and yours as well.

    One of those days (rant)

    Read up on the ISC/BSD license. GPL followers tend to curse BSD/ISC for being "business-centric" (and there is perhaps some truth to the business side of that thinking), but seriously, read the license (template for OpenBSD, not the actual license):

    Though I agree...cheers and beers go a long ways in settling disputes =D

    And who or what does care about your software rights/freedom? What would alleviate your primal scream? Cheers and beers!

    Got X11 working.

    Oh, for heaven's sake ... I just figured out that I was completely mistaken about i3 ... I confused it with ion3 (the last "named" version of ion). So, to correct myself:

    The notion window manager is the replacement for ion.

    Well, for accuracy ...

    The i3 wm has been "defunct" for quite a while, and "notion" is its replacement, picked up by a different development team (after the i3 author abandoned it), and renamed - rather cleverly, imho - "not-ion"

    I don't use "awesome" myself, I've only seen demos of it, which have all used its tiling layout(s), so that's been my only awareness of it - as a tiling wm. The fact that it has other layout options doesn't seem to me to disqualify it, and it does happen to be listed under "tiling window managers" in wikipedia

    In reading more about it, seems that awesome may be a quite unique beast, being more of a "framework" allowing the user to mold it into whatever "style" they want, which also seem to include "a tiling wm".

    Chromium 36 upgrade with SSE2 instructions will not execute on Athlon XP 2400+

    Chromium 39 won't run on AMD Athlon XP 2400+ machine

    Chromium is now up to version 39 and still won't run on this old machine (AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (32 bit) processor and ASUSTeK Computer A7V8X motherboard, purchased 2003). It is probably not a high priority for the developers, and I have other options.

    PuppEX Tahr Linux Live CD with kernel 3.17.2-puppex

    A "review" of PuppEX Tahr

    I simply must cite a member of Puppy Linux Forum: This is astonishing - outstanding even, boots fast and absolutely fly's on my old X60 Thinkpad. Lost for words to describe just how good this is. Anyone that want's a real OS experience and more should try this. Still playing - looking better all the time.
