    Geekfest

    Okay I didn't want to hijack Dazz's thread so I'm staring a geek-off

    I'm sitting here with gentoo doing a massive emerge... wondering since I have to upgrade the drive and put a DVD burner in this system, should I just do another phase 1 build of gentoo, or move to Suse & save myself all the head-aches Gentoo involves.

    But I do like having a phase 1 build....

    Too funny, I'm at work testing software and at the same time installing Gentoo 2005.1 at the same time. I'm using phase 3 though. Gentoo is new to me, I've used SuSe and Mandrake but they install and done. I wanted to start from teh ground up and learn more.

    Cheers

    This build's over a year old. It's okay but it's my first Gentoo build so there's a lot of things I should have done differently that are best corrected by starting over.

    Correcting my CHOST for example. Don't believe the threads that suggest you can just re-emerge everything, I've been trying to clean up after that for 4 months now. Format & do over ...

    SuSe would be okay, it would do the job but there's just no coolness factor in it

    I use VMWare sessions in Gentoo as test beds for my apps, I have images here of all the common desktop modles to test against before deploying.

    Cheers!

    I know this will be considered blasphemous, but I dont use linux. I'm a gamer, and I need my games. In addition, I am a business man and need to target my software for the most prolific platform, in this case being Windows.

    While I have used linux many times during my network admin days and at home before that, it always came back to games.

    lol, I only use linux as a host OS for the multiple flavours of windows I need to test against. I find there's marginally better performance doing it that way over using XP Pro as a host.

    At home, I've got a RAID0 SLI system that does 2 things:

    1) Plays World of Warcraft.
    2) Balances my chequebook, but only on Saturdays.

    Linux won't come within 100 yards of that system.

    The rest of the network is for my wife & kids and I just can't see them doing an emerge -uD world anytime soon. I have a hard enough time keeping up with what the heck just went wrong with my gcc, I'm not planning to support thiers too

    Cheers!

    Mostly Eonar, Alliance. I don't have half the free time I'd like to actually play the game, but I get every Friday night as a gaming night.

    My wife does "Girl Stuff" and I game

    Other than that, I sneak in when the house, the kids, the fish, the cats, the dog, my wife, and work don't require my attention.

    That is, if I'm awake still

    Cheers!

    I'm running Windows 2003 on my server and XP Pro on my workstation. I've got a little PC104 system running RH9 but I'm definitely a Windows guy (when there are no VMS systems around, that is.)

    If you're looking to run the absolutely coolest geekiest Linux on the planet (and off it) you need Flight Linux.
