Which is /g/ favorite distro?
I have been lurking for weeks and still don't know!
Thank you for your time.
It's a meme.
Everything is compiled from source, meaning you get a marginal edge in performance since it's geared to the hardware you compile on, but to my understanding there's a hell of a learning curve and it's less stable without an intimate understanding of the system. Doesn't work out of the box.
To the contrary, Debian is reasonably user friendly and traditionally rock stable out of the box (gold standard for webservers), with the cost being slightly dated packages due to slow release cycles.
If they are serious they say install funtoo. If someone says install gentoo he meand that you could figure out how to solve your problem on your own if you could read well enough to be able to install gentoo.
Please don't try to push it on newcomers.
Xubuntu. Becauese it just werks TM without being as big Ubuntu or as fugly as Lubuntu, it has that nice balance. Not to mention the huge community and every problem being solvable a google search away.
>I have trouble with basic reading comprehension
OP asks what /g/'s favourite linux distro is. Drop by in any desktop or daily programming thread and you'll find that Arch outnumbers Debian by a bit.
I remember seeing several strawpolls with similar results.
I'm answering the question. Now, take some time off your busy schedule to kill yourself.
Not a big fan of XFCE. Arguably smaller memory footprint and more stable than GNOME, but the tradeoff in user friendliness isn't worth it IMO.
Then again, you can take solace in knowing the developers haven't been robbed dry by feminists.
OP here, thanks for all the help.
Can I ask what DE this is?
>So I can do debian + gnome and get it looking like that?
The bottom MAC like launchy thing looks cool - would that be another package installed onto gnome?
No clue because I use XFCE myself but I doubt it would be to hard to set up even if its not included with the default package.

It seems she had rather rich credentials as a corporate lawyer and later became the chief legal adviser for the Software Freedom Law Center, which was probably how she became well embedded within the FOSS community as a counsel and speaker.
It probably seemed like a great idea at the time, but you know what they say about good intentions.
