Reddit: Linux is becoming a piece of shit

Thursday 27th of November 2014 03:02:37 AM

They just keep stacking crap on top of crap. Why support shit that no one uses? Just so we can slow everyone down?

Switched from Linux to FreeBSD about a month ago. First I did it for my server, then my desktop.

I always thought of FreeBSD as another failed alternative OS. I must say, from the moment I started using it it seemed much more rock solid than Linux could ever be. Plus I admire the fact that FreeBSD developers focus more on technology than politics.

FreeBSD supports ZFS, Jails, appears to use less memory, has rock-solid stability, great documentation, great security warnings. The list goes on.

What's your excuse? CentOS isn't one of them.

Make Your Mark on the World With Linux

Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is. Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer. Read more
