palemoon &devuans are just self-serving egotists(so im told)

Postby figlfdev » Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:45 am

ive read that palemoon is just an ego trip, which could be true, but i think its more likely that theres just so much mess to clean up-- youd have to have an ego to even try to fix it. but calling someone an egotist for that line of reasoning is circular, or catch-22.

it also makes me think of the reputation the devuan devs have. no matter what they do. year after year?

also, palemoon is disgusting-- its made of cheese.

hmm, is finnix http://www.finnix.org/ an ego trip? How about 4M linux? Absolute Linux?
Yeah, in another topic we groused about devuan's choice of Discourse for its "forum"... but at least they have a forum! Following links from distrowatch, it's a headscratcher for me to notice how many a "distro" lacks a forum, lacks a mailinglist or has a ml with zero activity. My best guess is that many of these represent "portfolio" fodder ~~ jojo lists on his resume or mentions during a job interview "oh, and by the way, I'm the lead developer of and Chief Cybersecurity|Cloud|Buzzword3 Officer for the vanitynamehere linux distro".

When describing boutique distros, I can't recall previously hearing or saying "ego trip". Maybe "vanity distro"?
Some have been really well put together, and under-appreciated, seldom mentioned... like galpOn miNino

shh! piece and quite

couldnt tell you. might as well take it as a compliment, they obviously dont think youre old enough to watch a classically trained bass player with sideburns playing an aluminum pipe with bass strings and midi controls. they dont want corrupt you :)

i didnt think youd be a fan but if you look for that1guy "the moon is disgusting" you will probably find watchable version of it. i like it live, but it doesnt seem like your cup of tea. could be wrong, of course.

oh when im not specific i could be talking about almost anyone. in this case, i dont even have a name to give, but ive surely read speculation of that type-- my point about it was that its easy and (like a lot of speculation) difficult to prove or disprove. but im sure it happens. fig os for what its worth, is a small effort that started as an experiment, and continues as whatever it is. i actually do think its useful for education, but that could mean anything. what i consider education many would possibly consider a complete waste of time, and vice versa. there are some lovely and very stilted debates about that sort of thing, which im occasionally privy to that i find mildly interesting at least.

There are only a few actual Linux distros, Debian/Devuan/RedHat/Slackware mainly, who actually build from the program code, the rest are the base distro plus software - spins/respins. 8-)

I'm not saying this is bad, because I like a choice, but some are so marginally different as to only have a change of name & a different wallpaper - change the desktop environment or window manager, give it a name & you have a new 'distro'. ;)
