mintCast 287 – Debian 9



Bi-weekly Wanderings:

  • Isaac is MIA with a flooded basement.
  • Rob’s been playing Starfinder (still) and wondering about kernel releases and versions on his LMDE box.


Linux Innards:

  • Rob looks at Debian 9, and the various desktops available.

Vibrations from the Ether:

  • Favorite quote (from Brad A): “There used to be an old saying that “using DEC Unix is like driving a nail with your forehead. Eventually you will get somewhere, but not without a headache and some blood.” Most of the distros you have tried fall into this category.

    Nice solo show, Rob. One thing I’d like to say is that listeners should be careful to generalize about “BSD” based on experiences with TrueOS. I get the impression that TrueOS is a pretty poor reflection on FreeBSD (on which it is based). And of course FreeBSD and NetBSD and OpenBSD all forked from one another over 20 years ago, so whatever characteristics they share, there are also some big differences.
