If Linux were a dog

Filed under

As I zoned out this morning, sipping coffee and watching my dogs wrestle on the couch, I wondered, "If my dogs were Linux distributions, which ones would they be?" Yes, these are the thoughts that run through my head as I get started in the morning.

I also thought about which dog each operating system would be. I decided that Otis, my pit bull rescue from the Humane Society, is a lot like Linux. For one thing, the term pit bull, like Linux, could mean a mix of a variety of genes and breeds. Animal rescues are full of pit bulls, which can be hard to adopt out. For one thing, people are afraid of the breed, mostly because they don't understand them. Their reputation scares some folks away. Sounds like Linux, right?

Huawei Watch Review: Best Android Wear Smartwatch Available

The Huawei Watch currently offers the best option on the Android Wear platform. The Huawei Watch looks elegant and offers great design as well as multiple attractive style options depending on the buyer’s cash flow. Even iPhone owners can take a look. If an iPhone owner prefers a stainless steel round watch, then the Huawei Watch is a usable option at a lower price than the Stainless Steel Apple Watch. Android Wear works well on iPhone, but does not give users the same level of integration. The most important features work fine, including notifications and fitness tracking. We give the Huawei Watch a hearty recommendation. It is worth paying a little more for this attractive and well-designed Android Wear smartwatch. Read more
