bsd is unix, linux is applied unix.
nope, this doesn't help.
But what helps: get a powered hup. The HOST-Connector powers the rPi (really cool), and the CLIENT-Ports power your usb-devices.
1) eliminating choice is bad
2) Unity is not "de facto". It is only supported by Ubuntu. If you want something widely used, try KDE.
Go use ubuntu and shut up.
Even when there may exist such a distro, go search it yourself. Otherwise look at the suggestions here, and recognize you need to pick the best one, even when it does not have all of your points. Or pay someone to build such a thing. Or do it yourself.
if you really want ubuntu based, try Trisquel. It runs really fine. I am still waiting, if they switch to a Debian base.
Last time i looked at the LMDE livecd, it was not quite as usable as Mint. But i definitly do not want something with ubuntu base. They fuck with their packages (see Gtk), and every fork will suffer from it, too.
for LTS people.
Try something like fedora if you like 6 month releases.
maybe, they want to know, that you move the cursor out of the ad, to watch the animation displayed?
He is telling us features of systemd, and if upstart supports them, too. He omits some strenghts of upstart, as he just wants to show his software is superior.
systemd is hard to use. If a service fails, you get cryptic instructions (ie. use journalctl -xn, while its not described what -xn means, and its a log snippet in less, which is much less useful than just a
WTF, Slashdot? Why are you censoring the quote?
Its a german personal pronoun.
Maybe. But KDE 4.0 was total crap, too. But it had a nice new foundation, and big ideas. with 4.2 they were usable again, with 4.4 they started taking real adavantage of their new frameworks.
akonadi and nepomuk are still both PITA despite having great concepts, but the rest works like a charm. So, doing something new is not the problem. Doing something wrong, is the problem.
Works stable out of the box, printer was usable without even configuring it (i wanted to add it, just to see that its already a registerted printer), everything works. Nice stable versions, with a new release "when it's ready", which does not need to "wait for
SysV-init still runs nice on Debian, and they will continue to use Xorg/Wayland.
So, seems a good choice for DAUs, and for experts, too.
