Mint, Ubuntu, and OpenSUSE

Filed under
Linux

Last time out I was on an adventure of my lifetime, traveling to our Pune, India office to meet others in BMC's R&D Support team. I had taken my Dell D620, configured with Mint 3.1. It was reliable and trouble free. What was left over from that trip was an issue from the previous post about OpenSUSE 10.3. It was troublesome enough on the D620 hardware that I ejected it at the last minute in favor of Mint 3.1.

I had two days back in the office between trips, and spent one evening after everyone left setting up a new set of Linux test systems.

Laptops

I tend to use laptops to test all things Linux desktop for these reasons.

1. Linux on a laptop is usually a harder test for Linux, since the hardware can be less standard. Call it a stretch goal.

2. My office is only so big! Laptops save space, and power, and have built in screens so I don't have to have to have a KVM infrastructure.

3. Laptops now outsell desktops, and why not? Dual core, 64 bit, increased memory on RAM and Disk... what do I need a desktop for?
