BSD has been tempting me but I haven't done it yet. I think I may temp this one the next time I have a rainy day.


Windows free since Crunchbang 8.10!

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

I've read alot that sysadmins love using the BSD variants for servers - partly because of that init system - but it sounds like it's can be a great desktop too. Congrats on making it work @HoaS

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

GhostBSD 10.something-beta-whatever release. Really nice theming. This is a much better choice for budding BSD'ers than PC-BSD (sorry guys but strip it down, make it based on pkg and compatible with ports). Of course, spins with small teams are always going to be less solid than proper OS/distributions but you could have a lot of fun with this.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

After the end of Crunchbang i barely hopped from OS to OS, in most cases i did some extremely short hops (a day)... but still ; Arch linux, Antergos, Manjaro, Android X86,  Haiku OS, Chromium OS,  Archbang, and one of the BSD (free or open, i am not not sure anymore).

I realy like pure ARCH and i ran it for many months, reinstalled it more than once to, just for fun. Eventually i end up 'fidling' it to pieces, or i lose trust in it for many reasons... The main one being me not wanting to check the system from top to bottom every-time something might not be what it has to be.

BSD was  a realy short hop just because i wanted to get into X to then abandon all hope with the drivers... which migh have been solved by now because of all the desktop OS attempts being made while using the BSD core.

and now im literraly using #! again, even though its begining to age.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

I think I may be cured. I've had the same two distros on my PC for over a year, now: Arch and openSUSE.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

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
