Comparing Apples to Oranges

Most of the time, when we see perfection, we can't really appreciate it. Until we see the alternative. Well, alternative is an understatement. See what it would be like if Microsoft packaged iPod.

Loving Gentoo Linux

I just upgraded my home server to a lightning fast 350Mhz Pentium II. It used to be a top performer in 1998. The OS of choice is Gentoo Linux. Why? After installation (with a custom kernel) was finished, I typed netstat -at and found nothing running. Absolutely nothing. It was up to me to add sshd and lighttpd. Then I did lsmod and found only 2 modules loaded, one for network card and one for SCSI controller. Nothing else. That's why. However feature laiden Fedora Core is, I just can't stand 200 modules loaded and 300 daemons running after a refresh boot. I exaggerate. Anyhow, go Gentoo!
