Links for mid-December

  • So I ended up… installing Arch Linux. And guess what? I love it. Everthing works. The installation process is a bit rough, but everything is logical and if you don’t want to spend time doing it you can even use an impressive live-cd project, Chakra. Package management is also innovative breaks with the rpm and deb tradition of “packaging” for a simple, straightforward way of actually fetching the original versions of the software. The result is that everything works just fine if you take the time to think about what you’re about to install and upgrade. Heck, even Second Life works perfectly, on my 64 bits architecture!
  • I’m announcing it with a week late, but lpOD 0.8 has been released. Come on over and test it!
  • At the height of his one of kind career as a Microsoft-puppet-pretending-to-be-impartial, Alex Brown wants to take out Brazil out of the ISO. As Berthold Brecht once wrote, if you are not happy with the people, just replace the people.
  • Last but not least, you are more and more readers of this blog, so let me thank you for it, and wish you a merry Christmas and happy new year!
