The Distro Dance

by @ 7:26 pm. Filed under General Linux, Work-Related

As of Monday, June 3, 2006, I will no longer be working at Novell doing the SUSE Linux CoolSolutions stuff. I have accepted a position doing PHP and system administration on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server machines. I will also be receiving approximately a bunch more than I am now. You see, I can be bought. I have no shame. I am in it for the money. It’s all about capitalism; the American dream, baby.

As such, I am no longer absolutely bound under penalty of death by schoolbus to using ONLY SUSE Linux. A while back I told someone (seems like it was Hans Fugal) that if the time came that I wasn’t bound to SUSE Linux by way of my vocation, that I would try out Debian. Well, as I said I would, I am taking a look at it. After 3 days of jigdo downloading stuff, I finally have two DVD images. Dude, that is a ton of packages. Is there any other Linux distro that has more packages than Debian does? Wow.

Anyone else have any reason that I should try any other distributions while I’m at it? Don’t just randomly name Linux distros. I have a link to DistroWatch, too. I can just as easily go to that page and click the links on each distro. If you are going to make a suggestion, please tell me why I should look at that distro. The more details you give, the more likely I am to not delete the comment.

Yes, I’m in a bit of a mood.
