Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Experimenting with MX right now and debating if encrypting the homedir (which MX does) is enough v. doing LUKS/LVM for the whole drive (which I do in other distros) for CYA work security purposes.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Github just suggested this one to me:

oasis — a small statically-linked linux system

It uses the velox window manager, which appears to be very similar to dwm but running under Wayland cool

Will do smile

Can't quite figure out the build system atm (ninja & lua based?) but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

MX is growing on me. I did make a wacky antiX/BL setup and may yet try it with MX.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

^ A pre-configured Debian XFCE distribution? Very nice cool

Shame they don't do a version based on stable.

EDIT: MX Linux have that covered though glasses

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

MidnightBSD is a desktop fork of FreeBSD and it's been in development since 2006.

It must be a very reliable distro, because when I had a look at their forum, there were not many issues to read about.

Btw just saw STAR. Interesting, based on Devuan.

Awesome distribution cool

Anybody who wants a #!-like distribution with nosystemd should check that out.

That's ozitraveller's project - does an excellent job with it.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

OpenBSD 6.3 is out:

https://www.openbsd.org/63.html

I've been using -current for ~3 years now and it just keeps getting better & better cool

Anybody with Intel or AMD hardware (there is some Ryzen support now) should try it out; no NVIDIA users though tongue
