Pathology: Two Years of Linux

Posted 11-26-2009 at 05:35 PM by fullmetalgerbil

So it's been just about two years that I've been using Linux. I started off just out of sheer curiosity, and like many people my first distribution was Ubuntu. It was ok, but I wanted to try other distros and I used BLAG Linux for a while then wound up on Debian testing for a good bit. Then I went sorta apeshit and tried out about 20 different distributions before finally settling on Slackware which is still my favorite eventhough I'm currently running AntiX. Actually it's kind of a tie between...

Digital versus analog...

The "holiday shopping season" is nearly upon us, which means that the holiday shopping season advice columns are here too. I just read this one from PC Mag "What Not to Buy in 2009" and it really bugged me. The basic gist of the advice seemed to revolve around getting the most value for one's money, but it failed to really address just how much value can be had for how much money.

So at 2:30 PM, half of the company I work for started hitting the application server running bogus reports...

I watched the PostgreSQL database backend while all of this was going on. By 2:34 PM, the system...

"What is a good distro for my old computer?" (1)

Posted 11-24-2009 at 10:35 PM by ofaring (Debian, This That and the Other)

Toshiba Satellite 2590CDT, ~1999, 400 MHz Celeron, 192 MB RAM.

It seems to be a common question. Truth is, most of them would work. You just have to learn some of their ins/outs and then set up according to your needs. Of course, there are some which are almost entirely inappropriate for this 400 MHz Celeron processor with 192 MB of RAM. Take source-based distros like...
