These Are The Biggest Blessings With GNU/Linux

Filed under
Linux

Once again a supposed fan of FLOSS trumpets an attack-piece listing the many flaws of GNU/Linux while completely getting it wrong. The first item, hardware support, for instance, is clearly wrong. GNU/Linux supports far more hardware out of the box than that other OS. That you can move a disc-image from one random machine to another and get it working instantly is proof of that. That’s almost impossible with that other OS.

So, GNU/Linux is the worst system for IT imaginable, except for all the others… GNU/Linux is not perfect but it has very few problems beyond exclusion from retail shelves, a deliberate plot by M$’s sales-droids.

Some of the blessings, not in any particular order:

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
