Is there something out there like arch except you choose what packages to build your linux with online then download a generated .iso file? See I've been trying out different Linux's lately but all of them have a certain problem.

My main problem originates with my monitor. When I ran Ubuntu it would flash at an almost even interval. I posted for help on the Ubuntu Forums but no one would reply. So I've been booting different Live CDs. I then moved on to DSL where the monitor was fine but I couldn't figure out how to get the internet to work. I put the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf and everything. But I didn't really want to use that anyway. I tried it out just for fun. I then moved on to OpenSuSE (GNOME version). No monitor problem, no internet problem. But I can't install packages. It's always some error or another. I tried asking on their IRC channel, but all I got was a snobbish answer saying "Installing random packages will blow your system up. Period." I hadn't even gotten ANYTHING to install. I was thinking Mandriva next but I don't have a Mandriva CD like I had the OpenSuSE and DSL CDs. And I'd rather not download a hundred more OS's.

Anyone have any suggestions? I'd preferably go with something like I first described but you could probably convince me to get another Linux.

Yeah, I did download that. I still haven't written it to disk though. I'm also going to write a copy for my friend. He has a really old laptop from like BC and since SimpleLinux is advertised to be small I'd figure it work better than all the other distros he's tried on it.

 windows and spam

 
 by omega-xis on: Mar 24 2010
 
Score 50%

nowadays, 90% of the internet usage is SPAM. spammers infect A computer with a virus and let that computer send it, so they wouldn't get caught. but what would happen if all OS-ses get equal market share. for the software developers it wouldn't make much of a difference. you can compile your sourcecode on ANY os, so it would be fine.

but for the spammers it will be a total nightmare! They have to write a dosen virusses for EVERY OS. you have to find security-holes in EVERY OS. Building a botnet will be as hard as it's gonna get. so the spam will decrease!

so it's for everyones sake to switch OS!
microsoft might be the greatest thread to our security ever!!!!


why pay 305 dollars for a lada (windows) if you can get the lamborghini (linux) for free.

 WinDoze

Over priced, insecure, unstable, and glad I abandoned it at home. As for the development kits provided for it, they all suck bug time, with crap documentation, implementation, and expensive. Why do folks think WinDoze is a good choice? Beats me!

I'll tell you why: APPS. People rarely interact with the OS itself, they interact with APPS. And although our apps may have just as good, if not better, capabilities, people are ACCUSTOMED to only a select few, and if the OS does not support them, then it doesn't matter: it will never be as user-friendly as they would like.

Plus, there's HARDWARE VENDORS which take the pain out of installing Windows in any computer, since they craft the drivers for Microsoft, who only has to add them to their collection without much extra support. We usually have to handcraft our drivers through reverse-engineering to support the latest trends in hardware (although "commonware" is quite supported overall on the middle-computing grounds), and then change the licensing so it is Libre instead of a proprietary crap.

Finally, there are USERS who suck at using computers, who use computers due to indoctrination regarding specific menus and who are simply illiterate regarding anything except their selfish desires. The Linux community does not endorse selfishness, it endorses cooperation, mutual benefit, and friends. When you try to show the benefits of Libre software to these people, they don't care, because unless those freedoms make their computer pretty or hip, or make it the coolest, baddest mother in their neighborhood, they won't care that some company owns their feces, their air or their water. They just blindly accept it, without questioning why/how can any one institution hold so much power in their lives.

These are some of the reasons I've discovered in my personal experience that are consistent no matter what person I talk about Linux. I don't blame them, but I also won't accept their reasoning as true without questioning their presuppositions.

I agree with you. Games is another big one, though I guess that could fall under the APPS category that you mentioned. I know a guy that was a PC gamer, running Windows of course. Then he got a PS3 like I've been telling him to do for a long time. He totally switched to console gaming and switched to Kubuntu. I've seen many cases like this one. So I think it's fair to say that there are computer literate people out there who want to switch to Linux but are PC gamers so they're stuck with Windows.


People I've gotten to switch to (K)Ubuntu: 3
People who switched back to Faildows: 1
