Re: Bunsenlabs and Debian

I think the devs have done enough for Bunsen to qualify as a proper distro, but there are clearly some examples elsewhere which don't qualify as distros. For example, Stella is based very closely on CentOS and its authors call it a "spin"; perhaps this is a term which could be used more widely?

This is the second time you resurrected this thread (and without adding any value).
Why?
I would much prefer to let it rest in peace & die of old age.
Maybe the mods could do sth about it.

That's a matter of opinion, surely? Clearly I didn't *think so, or I wouldn't have made the addition I did. And a month isn't "old age" in my book; threads can go months on other forums I post on (try the Vector forum, for example), without anything being added, and then pick up where they left off.

I've said all I want to say on here, so letting the mods decide sounds sensible.

*To be fair, you did have a point about my first post in this thread not adding much (if any) value. Though I say so myself, I think this last one did make a reasonable point though.

Re: Bunsenlabs and Debian

@ohnonot, this is a General Discussion thread, so I don't think @CP's question is out of line, and I don't think Mod action is required.

That said, I have no experience with Stella nor CentOS, so I can't comment, and I recommend that he post the question on a more appropriate forum if nobody responds here.

@Colonel, fair enough, yes?

BTW, spin, distrolet... semantics. CrunchBang was a one man project based entirely on Ubuntu and then Debian, it made an impact on the world of Linux. Spin, distrolet, unofficial derivative, or distro?

BunsenLabs will rule the world!

If I live long enough I just might see it happen.

Sure, fine by me. I think though that the success of a thread should be measured at least as much by the number of people who view it as by the number of posts; I've seen threads elsewhere with just one post on them but with a lot of views (because the post said all that really needed to be said on the topic and no one felt the need to add to it).

Re: Bunsenlabs and Debian

Doesn't matter if it's a distro or a spin. Bunsenlabs is a piece of art, the effort of some people that want to share his view of how stylish, rock-solid and productive a debian desktop can be.

Re: Bunsenlabs and Debian

'It's not just a theme' or 'uhm, no' could be a the correct answers to that specific troll.

Nope, I'm just getting on, half lung power, and on pills for my ticker.  But so far, I'm good ... knock on wood. {ouch}

Re: Bunsenlabs and Debian

yawn.

the thing that started this thread is a pretty disgusting piece of WWW history, and the question has been answered in this thread, in post #5 (!):
https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Census/BunsenLabs
what else do you need to know.
semantics? "spin", "distro", "derivate"? pshah.

yours truly wrote:

in any case, what's a distro and what's not - there's no clear definition other than the fact that someone's "distributing" it.

that's all.

the rest is -
an explanation about how that disgusting piece of WWW came about in the first place, and the inevitable lust for gore that keeps people coming back to threads like these like flies to a pile of ... well, you get the picture.

well put. KISS (unlike me)!

Edit:
oops, just noticed that almost 2 days had passed since the previous comment; so I guess this time it's my fault.
