Linux

We got any Linux Users in the Pit?

I'm taking 2 courses for my Comp Sci major and using Linux for both. (They give us a live DVD, which means you don't have to install Linux; but it's easier to just install it.) So, I'm basically learning how to program C++ in Linux. I like it so far.

What does the Pit think of Linux? Poll is public.

It's a good OS but unfortunately pretty useless for me.

Why's that, out of curiosity?

Too limited for my professional needs. And I find the applications to be dull/uninspiring. I just use OS X which is basically Linux but a lot more streamlined and efficient.

I use Linux Mint as my primary OS. I also have Ubuntu installed from testing out the Steam Linux beta.

Thinking about installing Fedora next. I'm taking a class in Uni about operating system theory and they use Fedora to cover the Linux parts.

EDIT: I've also been messing about with a Raspberry Pi recently, which uses a modified version of Debian. It works well but, you really don't know how well you have it with modern computers. That thing only has 256 MB of RAM. Trying to run anything but a simple BASH shell is dreadful.

I've always found linux to be a fun toy but I cba to ever sort out all the kinks and issues you get when I can just use windows and have it work without a huge pain in the ass and hours of research just to get programs and stuff to work right.

If you CAN be be bothered to sort it out though I bet you could get something way more intuitive and less resource sucky than windows.

hate to be the pedantic guy but while OS X is unix based, it has nothing to do with linux, rather it is built upon freeBSD. Linux can also be incredibly streamlined as its completely customisable to every single minute detail. Efficient I agree with though, because Linux generally is not plug-and-play. at all (although more recent ubuntu builds have come a LONG way in that regard).

it's always good to try lots of distro's anyway, but for the sake of "being on the same page" there's not gonna be a whole lot of point in going to that trouble. The only difference you're really going to notice is the package manager. Outside of that you can pretty much still run all the software you would on your Mint system.

for the record, I like linux but it still has plenty of quirks and I'm still happier with Windows 7 as a "main" PC.

I know what you mean but I wouldn't say it has nothing to do with Linux. They share a lot of the same approaches on the surface.

I have Windows, mac, and Linux based machines. Necessary for my job.

As you could only pick one, I picked "TS is a knob"



Edit: Ubuntu is my flavor of choice and Lubuntu for playing with old laptops..
