Ask Slashdot: What Distros Have You Used, In What Order?

Jae686 Re:I don't understand (867 comments)

I don't use Linux, so I've always been baffled by this: why do you need to swap distros? What's up with this OS that everyone feels the need to jump around all the time? It's like a geek rite of passage to find the most obscure distro you can, it seems. I don't get it.

(Not trolling, genuinely puzzled)

we dont need to, we want to. :)

Steve Jobs Dead At 56

Jae686 Re:Lameness (1613 comments)

From the fall of AOL to the rise of iComputing, we had a 12 year golden age where walled gardens were derided, people owned their own devices, and the landscape of the internet formed more or less naturally.

Nevermind things like WGA, TPM, DRM, the omni-present EULAs in nearly everything that the majority of humanity used, making backups of one's media was considered to be "theft", Windows(!?) was actually poised to take over the server room, decoding an encrypted file or a proprietary chip meant litigation and/or jail time, and many, many other examples...

Golden age, my ass.

Kodak's 1975 Digital Camera

Jae686 Re:Kodak: credit where credit is due (140 comments)

I have a Kodac camera (a CX6330, its opened up right now, due to some bent switches....) and the respective EasyShare Printer 6000 dock and they were a pretty good combination at the time. Both the camera and the printer are pretty good. The printer is still in use, its being shared over a CUPS server. So in my view, I have a pretty good impression of kodak. If only they had Dslr cameras.........

Apple Says iPhone Jailbreaking Could Hurt Cell Towers

Jae686 Re:More freetard whinging (495 comments)

Just because you cant "build a cell phone as good as the iphone" does not mean you are forced to be happy with / about it.... And AFAIK there were smartphones long before the iphone came out..........
