My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Puppy Linux for my netbook, Arch Linux for my dedicated server, and Windows 7 for my home desktop. Unfortunately I installed Win7 on my desktop in a rush after uninstalling Windows 8 (received this thing from someone else), which left me with a lot of driver issues. Planning to re-install soon, maybe alongside a dual-boot Linux but not sure which distro yet.

Windows 8 was very disappointing. More limited than 7 and very confusing interface.

i think it was either  mint 11 or 13 that had the gparted bug where it would overwrite the mbr, making your drive unbootable. its been so long i can't remember. that being said, i would love i would love to have Elementary os with cinnamon desktop and taskbar. ]the main thing i love about elementary os is how light weight it is and the terminal has a tabbed interface, which i love.

No, it is not a lot by governments, Microsoft gets special deals with governments to push Windows into every box used in government computers all around the world, they go in, invest a couple million in some bullshit to program to teach kids or elderly people using computers and then the got a 70 million, 10 years contract for nearly every machine used in government's computers.

Shit world, I know...


Anyway, I need the lightest distro/configuration you guys can suggest, easy to maintain and updated software, currently running debian jessie, LXDE, very few services, zram, kernel 3.2.0, noatime, preload and all that shit, what can I do more to improve performance even more?

Openbox + tint2? Or some other taskbar? Linux Mint Debian?

Yeesh. I was out at tech-illiterate family members' house yesterday. They got a new laptop, so everything had to be set up for them. I actually had to Google how to shut the fucking thing down. Cheesy

Hahaha! This made my day. Maybe that's why Microsoft™ released Windows 8.1 right away!

That's not the worst part. For about five minutes, I couldn't figure out how to get to the desktop. I thought they actually forced users to only use what was presented to them in that goofy mobile phone tile display. I tried using Internet Explorer from that tile display, and it pops up some stripped-down always-fullscreen version, and I couldn't figure out how to configure it just to set the damned home page because there's no settings icon or box to click. Then I tried going back to the tile display and right-clicking the IE icon - still no way to configure it. I was about ready to give up within the first five minutes.

When Win8 installs (and again as the lumbering behemoth slowly boots), they have about three different phrases for "getting ready" in the progress report. No percentages, no ETA, just different phases of "readiness." I was laughing a lot yesterday - probably would've been hysterical if I weren't sober. I don't know what the Hell they were thinking when so many users still can't even figure out why the displayed time's wrong when "I thought it's set automatically by the time-keeper." Who would ever think it's a good idea to HIDE information and options in a GUI? Fucking Dwarf Fortress is easier to get a grasp on...

Idunno, though. It was like explaining Bitcoin to someone who's never even used a credit card or online bank, and never took an economics class. "Scott - it's saying our Internet's bad. We only got two bars!" "That's just the router. It doesn't actually indicate the strength of your Internet connection, just your wifi connection to the router." "Scott - you hear me? I said the computer says our Internet ain't no good! You need'ta call them!" They were testing me, man...

ETA: Still in the mood to bitch, so here's one last snippet of conversation yesterday. "So what kinda computer I got?" "Uh, a laptop." "Pssh I know that. I mean is it name-brand or not?" "Well, it's HP, so yeah. Hewlett Packard..."

My fav pet peve, when helping someone over the phone. You introduce them to the the
amazing technique of left-click and forever after, anytime you say click, they always have to ask "left or right'.

Never tried but there is an opensource software to customize Win8 so it looks more like Win7 or XP. http://www.classicshell.net/

Title pretty much says it all. Which operating systems and versions/distros do you use?


Proud RealityOSTM user here... it's full of bugs and security holes but has zero latency and is 100% free open source (although the source is difficult to understand).


(Currently setting up TinyCore Linux.)
