LXer: Linux distribution as food?


Published at LXer:

There are many articles that explain the different characteristics of the distributions of Linux, today I also want to try it my way. If every Linux distribution was a food, which would you choose to eat? Iíll try to resume for every distro the keywords that come to my mind thinking at it and see whatís the first Food result that google image give with these words and the word food.

I wonder what Slackware would taste like.

Probably wouldn't taste like anything, since I hear LSD is odorless and tasteless

I found the author's food choices/preferences to be rather weird.. What is jelly cake? Is that gelatine that's happened to set up in a cake pan?

Steak + chips != Slackware as it's too easy (just throw some steak and potatoes in the deep-fryer and presto!)

Slackware = A large buffet, where all of the foods have been simply taken out of their packages (or out of the garden, etc..) and put into the buffet. It's up to you now to select the foods you like, and to chop/heat/chill/season/blend/grate/arrange/combine the individual foods, to get the meal you desire in the end.

That sounds more like Linux From Scratch.

Ahh, but with LFS, don't you have to go milk the cow, pick from the garden, purchase the packaged food, etc., and THEN proceed with my post #5?

Maybe Gentoo, then.
Windows = Don't know, because they won't tell you the ingredients. But it will make you sick.

Windows = Cyanide

Slackware = What GrapefruiTgirl said

Gentoo = A supermarket, where there is a variety of food to choose from

Arch = " " " "

Mint = Just what it says

Ubuntu = Possibly something easy to eat, like pasta

Debian = Same as Arch, Gentoo, and Slackware, except that it is more like Arch in the fact that it isn't source based

And that's about all I have to say.

As an update, just because Ubuntu is dumbed-down for n00bs to allow an easy transition doesn't mean that it's bad.

Very true, Jeebizz: Ubuntu is a very easy way to use Linux and as such that is the reason why Ubuntu is so popular. It's because Ubuntu is easy. Plain and simple.

I don't care if a distro is made for "n00bs" or not, I care about how they handle their release cycles, eg: release the distro when ready or release it after 6 months even if there are still bugs to fix.
