Linux experience:

archlinux digtvbg linux logo administration

Archlinux with its package manager pacman, rolling release style of updates has built quite a name over the time. I’ve installed it to pcs and raspberry pis. The actual installation procedure is quite educating to say at least. Linux ecosystem has definitely found a nice ally in the face of the archlinux community. Last but not least – their wiki has saved more than a million lives (figuratively speaking).

Archlinux is guarateed to have a dedicated post in our blog.

Ubuntu  – my first installation of Ubuntu was in June 2006. At that time scepticism about desktop environment for a linux system was still quite real (maybe for a reason). Even back then in 2006, having no previous linux experience I managed to use Ubuntu almost smoothly. Over the time things in linux world changed, evolved in the very right direction – don’t mess the server functionality but improve desktop. In 2006 Gnome was the desktop, various Ubuntu flavors were not that many. Today I’ve settled with lxqt desktop – it’s not better not worse that the other desktop environments but I support progress. In my point of view lxqt upgraded lxde and prepared it for the future.

Some day I’ll try to say more in the blog.

This greeny little monster. At first I was sceptical about its usability and meaningful functionality (before even trying it). Once I had it installed I couldn’t believe that linux server configuration tasks and functions could be managed even easier than in debian/ubuntu world. OpenSUSE linux installer seems the easiest I’ve used (no pun against *BSD intended).

What makes openSUSE stand out in my point of view are these things:

-YAST2 – do try it before judging.

-OBS – the infamous opensuse build service

-Seamless integration of several desktops in 1 installation media.

Our blog will be glad to go into this soon.
