Distro Hopping
« on: June 24, 2013, 08:40:12 PM »
First look at Oracle's Linux... running it in a VM on VSIDO, yum and gnome2 on a Btrfs file system



Not bad...

Not really a true Distro Hopper, but I do like to play!  VSIDO is my personal favorite so I have played with these two using VirtualBox.

Fedora 18 64 bit;



Arch Linux 64 bit:



I've been trying to download the Oracle Linux release, but not every site is as well run as this one.  I can't seem to get it to download!  Oh well...

^ Nice...  I think you would be disappointed with Oracle Linux... it was like stepping back to 3 years ago...

What do you think of Arch and Fedora?

Oracle Linux sucked!  Waste of dl time.  Deleted.

I like Arch and Fedora is pretty slick too.  Of course nothing compares to VSIDO!!!!

Dizzie, you gotta get back here.  We miss you and your wit.  Not to mention the coffee and cutting!  Here's hoping your return is imminent!

And oh yeah, whats not to like about Arch?

Now there's a loaded question.  :D

@vastone - So Oracle has released a RedHat based distro; have you tried CentOS so you can compare the two? I read through the Oracle site, didn't see any real advantage.

Going to date myself a bit - back in the day, I checked out Sun's linux release - based on Suse - they really screwed the pooch with that one; I never understood why they didn't release a Solaris for the desktop (what project Indiana is today, I suppose). I ran Soloaris 10 for about a year and it was actually pretty smooth.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.
