… but Arch Linux is the ultimate powertool for power users! And housewives, and SL cartoon figures too.
Just got a brand new Linux Kernel, 4.17.12, and installed it right away.
Why is this so important? Well, to be perfectly honest, it really isn’t. No big deal if you always get the latest Kernel delivered right on your doorstep, like, 2 seconds after Linus (the man himself) gave his final ok and the Kernel was published. No biggie to use Linux distros that are based on older Kernels, like for example the whole Ubuntu family, including Linux Mint. Oh yes, let’s have a peek at what the amazing Linux Mint Debian Edition, LMDE3, comes with:
Aha! 4.9.0-7, right? Hey, not saying that Kernel is, like, totally outdated … but a bit long in the tooth it is by now. Well, it’s perfectly usable but be advised neither Debian nor Mint are sending out Kernel updates throughout the lifespan of this LMDE version. And if it keeps on rolling like LMDE2 before it, it might be some years before you’ll get something new and exciting. Yes, we all know Debian and its minion Ubuntu are more about Rock Solid Stability than about high fashion, yadda yadda yadda … but if and when you’re a geek, or a wannabe geek lookalike like Orcsi, you want always the lastest and greatest stuff on your computer, right? I mean, come on, the shit is free in Linux, so it won’t cost you anything to be always dressed in high Linux fashion. \o/ YAY! \o/
PS: More about LMDE3 soon. I finally got it installed without errors and testing it right now. So far everything looks groovy and why shouldn’t it? Oh, and it’s out of Beta already, so when you download it now, you get the final release version.
Whoa, that must’ve been the shortest Beta testing phase in the history of ever:
