Which Linux distro do you use?
« on: May 09, 2016, 03:59:09 AM »
Personally, I have been using Ubuntu since around 2012.  Before that, I used Fedora, Debian, and a handful of variants of these.  I've dabbled with Gentoo and Slackware and a few BSD distros, but I always seem to go back to Ubuntu.  I think my first experience with Linux was DSL, but I could be mistaken.  Anyone else?

And, before people start posting to say that BSD is not Linux, I want to say, "No shit."

Unbelievable. Now he opens a whole thread just to pretend that he uses Linux.

Why would he pretend? I've been using Windows for about 30 years now, and I make my living in the Windows ecosphere, but I know Linux has its strengths, uses and its place.

Namely, probably in your hand:


and the servers that host the about 90% of the web.

Nobody knows. Something forces him to do such things.

I used Unix for a while to operate CNC machine tools.

But, really, who gives a shit about an operating system?

You shills REALLY need to watch your vocabulary.

For servers, depends but usually Debian or CentOS. Used Ubuntu desktop for a while but lately have been Mac OS X / Windows.
The illusion is shattered if we ask what goes on behind the scenes.

I messed around with Linux for a couple of years convincing myself that it could replace my Windows desktop - but, nope it can't. Not for me at least.

However as a server I'm a huge fan. I have had a headless Ubuntu Server running at home now for about 7 years. It does all my media hosting, downloads, VPN, printing, FTP, file sharing, OneDrive syncing/backup, TeamSpeak, Minecraft, - you name it. Great bit of kit. Has not crashed once in 7 years either and has been upgraded several times without issue. Still running on old Atom hardware and seems as fast as ever.

For my home machine, no way. I like to play video games.

For work. I could go either way.

For embedded work, Linux is awesome. Total control. I thank Satan everyday that such a thing is available.

I use Debian and Manjaro for my daily, mundane activities, such as vim editing, browsing, and leisure(through Wine).
Also use CentOS for server activities(hosting websites,etc..). Quite reliable as aforementioned.
