GUI on LAMP Server

Polls are showing KDE and Gnome are pretty popular on LAMP Servers.

My question is why? Not the esoteric KDE is better then Gnome (or vice versa) but why would you want/need a GUI on a Server?

re: GUI on LAMP Server

Yeah, I wondered about that too. I even wondered if folks were answering it in terms of a "server." Unexpected results to be sure.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: GUI on LAMP

I replied Webmin. Rarely use GUI on the server for LAMP admin (just for initial setup and testing of the server). For ongoing maintenance and configuration, I typically use webmin or cpanel.

LG's got a flip phone that runs Android Lollipop

Flip phones aren't just for retro hipsters and the elderly anymore... well, actually they kind of are. But they're super popular in Asia, and now you can get one that'll run the latest apps: LG's Gentle flip phone. The faux-leather adorned device is running a bleeding edge version of Android 5.1 Lollipop and packing 4G LTE. Otherwise, it's not exactly a power-user's dream with a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 screen, 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of (expandable) storage and 1GB of RAM. But for just 20 million won ($175) it would make a fine second phone, provided you live in Korea -- it's unlikely to come here, and similar flip phones can be pricey to import. Read more
