Is Sparky Linux Fragmented?

Our friend Karmi seems to think so. Look:

I think this is a bit petty on Karmi’s part, coz this ain’t a specific Sparky but a Debian problem. Also, afaik, there ain’t hardly any difference between the super slowly Rolling and static Sta(b)le releases so choose any and install the shit on your machine and be happy. Ain’t nobody got the time to deal with a boring computer OS more than absolutely necessary.

Yes, the Sparky devs shoulda gone with the semi-rolling or, even better, the really rolling Sid version. That woulda made an even less fragmented distro. Anyhoo, they did their best to debloat Debian and made a very nice lightweight distro that is super easy to install and comes with a small collection of desktops so it’s also child’s play to work with. But then it’s fukn Debian, only freaks and sysadmins should ever be exposed to stuff like it. So it don’t matter one way or the other.

  1. You’re a longtime ‘Submissive Linux Distro‘ user who is a ‘Password Dependent‘ OS user so you would naturally have no clue what that post is about. Heck, you need two different Linux OSes because your favorite won’t work on a main computer…what’s ‘Dat about?!

    Just look at all the Fragmented versions that Sparky offers…including the “Oldoldstable images”!?! Next month they will have a ‘Oldoldolderstable images‘ option. 😉

    Only decent version option without the annoying Authenticate popups & pestering Pesky Passwords is the Cinnamon version…

    Linus Torvalds on “Why Linux Hasn’t Succeeded on Desktop”: ‘I still wish we were better at having a standardize desktop that goes across all the distributions … It’s more of a personal annoyance how the fragmentation of the different vendors have, I think, held the desktop back a bit … It seems to be that Chromebooks and Android are the paths towards the desktop.

    BTW, Were you trolling humble me? 😉

      Karmi! Would I ever? No, in fact I stumbled upon some wrong, misleading, irrelevant stuff in your review. That’s why I responded.

      Ok, in medias res:

      “You’re a longtime ‘Submissive Linux Distro‘ user who is a ‘Password Dependent‘ OS user”
      Ok, if you say so and if you think typing my password into the terminal once a week is such a stumbling block, then don’t use it.

      “Just look at all the Fragmented versions that Sparky offers…including the “Oldoldstable images”!?!”
      Why would I? I notice they keep some old shit around for whatever geeky reason, ignore it and install the latest with my fave desktop. That pancake is eaten. 😉

      “Only decent version option without the annoying Authenticate popups & pestering Pesky Passwords is the Cinnamon version… ”
      Good on Cinnamon. Use it if you like it. Btw, in Cinnamon I need to type in my pswrd same as in all the other desktops I ever used. Cause I do the updates in terminal and that looks the friggn same in all the Linuxverse.

      “Linus Torvalds on “Why Linux Hasn’t Succeeded on Desktop””
      With all the love and respect for Linus, he is largely inconsequential for the hobby-ist Linux community. He makes the kernel but has obviously no interest and no grasp on how Linux is used at the grassroots level. We end-users are mostly happy for every little project coming up with their on distro, new desktop enviros and nifty little tools. It’s fun. And honestly, without i.e. Mint’s Warpinator Hubby and me would have more problems sharing files. Call it fragmented or bloat, we’re happy and joyful that we have such a sexy little tool.

      If Linus had his way we’d all be computing in terminal editors, VIM or how that shit is called. 😦 Or in, even worse, Gnome. 😮 😦

      That?

      Fukn Gigabyte mobo obviously can’t handle Linux. The OS that runs on the world’s 500 fastest computers, the OS that powers the internet – and Gigabyte can’t handle it. 😦 Next time Imma gunna buy ASUS!

  2. Thought you had Manjaro Linux on that MoBo because Endeavor wouldn’t work on it…sounds like Endeavor is the problems, which is why you need two Linux OSes.

    • Manjaro is Arch, EOS is more Arch. Somehow EOS does fall apart after a couple days and Manjo werkz without probs. On my Lenovo minis and our laptops both systems are running fine. Maybe it’s the AMD architecture, maybe Gigabyte … most probably it’s me not being tricky enough. 😦
      Oh, and why would I need two OSes? I could just put Manjo on all machines, or Mint or Sparky or Ubuntu or RHEL or whatdoiknow … But that’d be rather boring, not?
