recently ran into Linux dev. my brother's an IT administrator and I was always wondering why he has 5231 tabs opened all the time as I was always pretty organised when it comes to gathering information (I'm a C++ dev), but now I get it. fixing one mistake in this OS and environment just causes another fixing which in turn causes the next one and eventually you'll just freaking lose it. it. just. won't. stop. goddammit.

    Comparing to Windows, it is at least better to fix it eventually than living with it forever..

    Well that's why I don't work at Microsoft.

    2) you dont use ubuntu

    @taiBsu Well if you need help, ask anybody in the linux gang ^^ (we bite, but only when your upper bit is set)

    @gnulinuxer4fun aye, thanks a lot. :D

    @taiBsu sure :)

    I want to make a pun about the upper bit being set so here goes:

    dont up set me too much, else I byte.

    What mistakes by the way? Linux sysadmin here and except for commands I'm not familiar with I don't have to search engine anything relating to Linux :)

    Thanks for the offer @linuxxx but for now I'm fine, I ran into some provlems trying to configure my Banana Pi for a Nextcloud system which almost drove me insane. I must have flashed the SD card about 5 times or sth because I just went out of ideas what the actual problem was. Well as I said, not a Linux expert. at all.

    @somoso ubuntu has a very weird management of libraries.

    My C++ std libs were /usr/share/local/libs
    or something similar. completely in another thingy.

    Also, it tends to have VERY long booting times and to decompose with every keystroke

    @somoso For me it's solely an ethical thingy :)

    @linuxxx care to elaborate?

    @dalastTomCruise I've had many times where I had to reinstall ubuntu because somehow it broke without me doing anything (mainly because of the update managers)

    also, it's boot times on my computer [rather good SSD, 16 gig ram DDR4, 12 Core 4.0Ghz CPU]
    are WHOPPING TWO MINUTES.

    While fedora boots in about 5-10 secs

    @gnulinuxer4fun Haha yeah ubuntu broke on me once (mainly because I was messing with shit) but other than that it's been pretty smooth. What would you recommend as an alternative?

    What version are you using?
  • 1
    @dalastTomCruise I currently use Fedora the cool girl
  • 1
    @somoso I am loving fedora

    @dalastTomCruise They've tried to get companies to only use official Ubuntu iso's and they've integrated Amazon ads by default for a while. Those are no-go's for me.

    I am also Linux admin and I have usually only 4 tabs opened when I am searching for a problem solution. Am I weird? :D

    @gnulinuxer4fun strange... I have elementary os (which is based on Ubuntu) on my laptop with not so good specs and it boots in 5 secs 😅

    Are you mounting any network drives which time out? That was often for me the cause for long boot times.

    @kolaente lol - as said, third party distros usually make up for ubuntus flaws

    I find linux easy to use for dev. In case you messed it up, there is google. :P
    ...And yes, you need a lot of tabs to fix something but it will work. ^_^
