Re: Top Linux distros for software developers

Every developer at my work is now on ubuntu. Most because it's the only linux distro they know and it's now mandated that developers use linux. I do even have 1 developer that has his Ubuntu machine joined to the domain so he gets the notifications of expiring passwords. Not sure if more will want t...

Re: WPS Office

Yeah, WPS I remember years ago when they had quite active development had REALLY good compatibility with MS Office, but it's fallen behind. Not just FreeOffice (which has always been pretty good), but also LibreOffice and OnlyOffice.

Re: KDE Neon 5.8

I guess that depends. I'd say Neptune beats it. Yes, Neon has better version of KDE proper, but Neptune is based on a more stable core, and IMO Debian very much "just works" whereas Ubuntu is...flaky.

Re: Top 5 RPM based distros September 2018

I honestly don't think I can say there's 5 rpm distro's I even LIKE. PCLOS hates my equipment, Mageia's snails pace development and having such limited repos annoys me, OpenSUSE I just can't seem to work right. Rosa, OpenMandriva and Fedora would be my 3, with Fedora actually topping the list. While...

Re: Open Mandriva Lx 3.03

The problem with Fedora for most people is it's TOO frequent. Having to upgrade every 9 months just gets old. And I actually like Fedora.

Re: 4 scanning tools for the Linux desktop

I read this last week. It amazes me that they can talk about scanning programs and NOT mention SANE, since it's basically the best linux scanning tool there is (if you know how to get it set up).

Re: SparkyLinux 5.5 released

Sparky has improved greatly IMO from a few years ago. Originally it was based on Testing, but now you can get it based on STable or Testing. This IMO was a huge improvement, as I'm just not a fan of dealing with distro's based on Testing given the inevitable breakage that occurs.

Re: When was the last time youve used Windows?

Depends. At work, I use Windows every day. AT home, I use it only when I want to play games. I have actually used it tonight, as I was playing a few games while dinner was cooking when I got home.

However, outside of work, my usage is 95% linux, and when not gaming, it's 100% linux.
