I'm on the Verge of Leaving Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

started with Ubuntu on the day of their first release, having come from Debian. I've been loyal since then. I felt Ubuntu was trying to make some changes that needed to be made in both the Linux distro world and in Debian specifically.

I spent countless hours on teh forums working with people to help them get settled into Ubuntu. I wrote howtos for the wiki and for this blog. I never tried to monetize the blog because that's not what I created it for.

During the 7.10 Beta cycle, I reported a bug involving unmounting of removable drives. Sebastien Bacher (yes, I'm calling him out!) did nothing but argue and stall over which word would be appropriate. Eventually Sebastien disposed of the bug.

Also:

I've been struggling with moving to Ubuntu Hardy Heron for almost a week. The aforementioned random-freeze problem has become more and more of an issue, and as I said previously, this is a deal-breaker.

It's not for lack of trying to fix it, either.

I give up.

Who knew?

Apparently even fanboys have limits to the brown crap they'll put up with.

Ubuntu developers are closing in on the next major release, with the Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf set to debut on October 22.

Among the key innovations in 15.10 is wider use of the Snappy technology for packaging, though it won't replace the core .deb packaging system anytime soon, if ever. Read more

RHEL 7.2 has an updated kernel target

As mentioned in the beta release notes, the kernel in RHEL 7.2 contains a rebased LIO kernel target, to the equivalent of the Linux 4.0.stable series. This is a big update. LIO has improved greatly since 3.10. It has added support for SCSI features that enable VMWare VAAI support, as well as data integrity (DIF), and significant iSER work, for those of you using Infiniband. (SRP is also supported, as well as iSCSI and FCoE, of course.) Read more
