Why use Linux?

Posted 02-15-2014 at 04:33 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...

EXTON-MAN 2014 (Mageia 4) 32 bit Linux live cd with LXDE

Posted 02-03-2014 at 11:09 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a quick and simple remaster of Mageia 4, released 140201. Mageia has been the third most popular Linux system in the world for some time now (according to Distrowatch.com).

Who is EXTON-MAN 2014 32 bit LXDE for?
There is no official live Mageia 4 ISO with LXDE for downloading. (Only with KDE and Gnome). EXTON-MAN 2014 can be useful for people with older 32 bit computers who like to run an eminent Linux system (Mageia) live with some speed. Also of course for all people...

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

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).

NEWS 140123

1. MeX Linux is once again based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 16 - codenamed "Petra", released 20131130 and on Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed "Saucy Salamander", released 20131017).
2. The MeX ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run MeX from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I've found two scripts which...

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.
