Linux as parent / child - Distributions / more ? / " the child " " the item that is "
Is there any resource that can just put into place and words the facts without the hollywood effects.
I " was " getting ready to purchase a " new " machine to install Debian into and i am just getting sick and tired of all of the pure bs that is available for information.
I have been reading Computer tech books for the last 3 to 4 years learning web site development and i just cannot understand why educated people cannot just spit out the facts as they are in a logical comprehensive way.
I have seen in web site development what is called crumbs , that is to lead some one on, and on.
And i have seen in book Publishers and Authors how they lure a person into buying more and more books, when one sentence could suffice.
In society some one may say to another person " lead me on " as a sarcastic reply to a con job.
If there is any reliable source of information on any thing Linux, please let me know. I just do not see why educated people need to take any thing that is complex and make it into a hell experience.
Hi, welcome to LQ!
Sorry, I'm completely at loss as to what your question is.
Lure, Hollywood, ... che?
Linux is what it is; it's a kernel. And there are a ton of varied
distributions to make interaction with the kernel easier/more useful.
Asking for a simplified view is like asking why there are so many
different cultures all over the globe. Has nothing to do with lure
or Hollywood, it's just what it is.
