Why use Linux?

Posted 02-15-2014 at 03:33 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I found something memorable about Linux on the Internet. I reproduce it here. The author is unknown to me.

: () { : | : & } ; :

We tell people we use Linux because it's secure. Or because it's free, because it's customizable, because it's free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support...

But all that is just marketing bullshit. We tell that to non-Linuxers because the wouldn't understand the real reason. And when we say those...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.13.1!

Posted 01-30-2014 at 10:36 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 01-30-2014 at 10:37 AM by exton

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.13.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).

Run from RAM using UNetbootin

ExTiX 14, MeX Linux, LFA (Linux for ALL) and ExLight (among other “exton distributions”) can be installed to a USB stick with UNetbootin. I have now arranged it so that the aforementioned systems can run from RAM (superfast!). You just have to replace on file after the installation is ready. READ THIS:

ExTiX 14 is currently in 14th place on Distrowatch.com’s “popularity” list (for the past seven days). Prior to such established greats like KNOPPIX, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Arch, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, Ubuntu Gnome, Gentoo, Slackware, SUSE, etc.

I can’t help being a little pleased.

ExTiX 14 on DistroWatch.com

Posted 12-25-2013 at 09:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 14 has been on DistroWatch.com since yesterday. It helps. I mean, over 2100 downloads in one day! Only from Sourceforge.net. How many people have downloaded the ISO file from the Swedish Linux Society server I do not know.
