Journal Sfing_ter's Journal: Another Day

Permanent Record Of Sfing_Ter:
LART!
Well, here we go. Linux rocks. Nuff said. I have been using linux since 1998 w/DeadRat 5.2. I saw how it could take the server markets quickly, as it did, but the desktop came and went with Corel, wrong market strategy, I jumped to Mandrake 6, and found a home. I use many different distro's now, depending on what I need and where. I currently am running a Helix/Realaudio server on a SuSE-cdbased distro. It works and is running on a 233mhz pentium mmx with 64mb ram. (x is slow but it works well in mode 3). For secure webservers on minimal hardware, you can't do it with Winders. For making routers with old hardware, that run an ids and great logging ... can't do that with winders.

For a good gui on a 233mmx i386 type system, find a copy of Beos, it works and it is fast on that hardware.

There is so much to learn and I am constantly learning more each day thanks to my friendly neighborhood slashbots!!!

No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.

Working...
