Comment Re: What an empty life (Score 1) 725

The best comparison I could make for it at the time is to the supermarket tabloids. It's not so much that it's fake news, as it was pure entertainment that happened to be taken seriously by random nut jobs we could easily ignore in our day to day lives.

That's the same reasons I like to watch some of the crazy stuff like Ancient Aliens now and then. Yeah, it's all complete bullshit, but damn they come up with some crazy/interesting theories sometimes.

Honestly it's not that far from the full backstories and stuff they come up with in Movies/TV shows at times.. like all the stuff in the Stargate TV universe matched to all the mythical gods and such.

While the experience is similar, deb management is more flexible, and in fact, being the master package databases state being text instead of binary, they do allow interesting things like doing live migrations from 32 to 64 bits instead of reinstalling the server, of getting out of inconsistencies or slight corruption of list of packages and dependencies.
