Which will you install

SuSE and/or Mandriva

Actually I have both or neither if you whish, my Mandriva 2006 is actually an upgraded cooker, and SuSE is a speciality SuSE Open (the speedy one) upgraded with the 10.0 DVD.
Although I have many years under my belt with Mandr[ake/iva], and almost no real life experience with SuSE, I am "affraid" I will have to change my opinion about SuSE.
I totally agree with srlinux, SuSE is reaaly nicelly, and profesionally
put together, logical, and most of all, fast as Sal's new HD (the bike, not his harddisk).
Mandriva made some really nice things on booting, currently cooker is my undisputed champion on booting, but on the day to day compiles, desktop work SuSE seems snapier.

  • Dark Matter
    Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 "Dark Matter", which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA's Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain 'persistence' on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware. Among others, these documents reveal the "Sonic Screwdriver" project which, as explained by the CIA, is a "mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting" allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick "even when a firmware password is enabled". The CIA's "Sonic Screwdriver" infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.
