Downloading RC1 now to install in VB for testing.  smile

Apropos openSUSE, I really wanted to like it enough to run as my main distro, but inevitably there was always something that didn't work the way I preferred. Manjaro Linux has been my primary distro for several months on both my desk- and laptop PCs and I prefer the community Cinnamon DE version.

Like Anaconda, I use VB for testing new versions of distros. It's much easier than installing and tweaking a distro on metal. BunsenLabs is the only distro that I'm currently running on VB and I like it even better than #!. I've never seen a distro boot and work as fast on VB! Consequently, I'm sorely tempted to install and run it next to Manjaro on my PCs. cool

I bought my first car in 1970, right after I got out of the USAF. It was a 1965, 2-dr, baby-blue Corvair Monza with a manual transmission and dual exhaust. I didn't pay much for it. The heating system was flukey and the car was heavy in the rear and tended to spin out on sharp corners at higher speeds--especially on wet roads. sad

After doing a 360 going into a traffic rotary, I decided to get rid of it while I was still alive. I traded it in for a beautiful, "cherry" tan '63 Chevy Bel-Air with red pin-striped trim.  smile

Back to Herr Krabbenhöft in Berlin. If that guys is 104 or even older than 74, I'll fly to Berlin and eat his hat!  monkey

@ Sector11: Yup, still alive and kicking, but sticking more to Arch-based Manjaro while running BunsenLabs in VB.  devil

I recently downloaded and installed the 64-bit version in VB and love the crunchy look and feel. Nice job devs!  smile

23 degrees C is a perfect temperature as opposed to 23 degrees F.  devil

Upgrade?! There are days when I feel like a 32-bit, 1 GB RAM PC with a motherboard that's ready to die. On other days...well...I feel almost...almost...like I did when I was 26.  devil  devil  devil

In the U.S., a toilet is also called "the can" and "the head," the latter common military jargon.   glasses

No virgins for me. A glass of Lagavulin will be fine, thanks.  devil

@ userx-bw:  Most of us are "still" anonymous since we use screen names like you do. In my case, g33zr is what I am and not who I am.  devil

I've given up distrohopping. The love is gone.... angel

Apropos reading, I read everything from classics to mysteries to pulp fiction to philosophy to poetry, depending on my mood. Same goes for music. I'm fussier about films, go figure.

As for tech stuff, I like what works without working too hard to get it to work the way I work.... devil

@jd: Go easy on the "sauce" and try not to drink alone. As some other geezers here might confirm, booze has a way of catching up with you in the long run.   sad

When I lived in Germany, I taught English for a while at a couple of private langauge schools. My students were often perplexed by the differences in pronouncing words like through, tough, rough, bough, bow, or words that were pronounced alike but had different meanings like seen, scene, seed, cede, be, bee, etc.

#23 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Arch Users - Do You Ever Hold Packages? » 2015-05-28 13:49:14

I'm not using Arch, but Arch-based Manjaro, and don't hold packages. I didn't hold packages when I ran sid either. If I break the system beyond my limited ability to repair, I simply reinstall everything and restore my folders from backup.

#24 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Which TV series do you watch/like/don't like.... » 2015-05-28 13:45:19

I liked the BBC series "Sherlock" on Netflix so much that I watched it twice. It's a superbly brilliant 21st century adaption of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. It's fast paced and hilarious!   lol
