To be or
I'm just afraid of people who come here for a while, then their needs change
and suddenly it seems to them that "VL needs to change" (accordingly of course).
While the distro itself still has everything that made them come here in the first place.
It would be hard to sum all up any better !
Just for background- the vast majority of droolers & wannBeZ that insist on "their distro_flavour_of_the_ moment'
Rule as THE Linux El-Supremo _
W H Y ??
not in any manner to denigrate any personal viewpoints _ it is contended:
If any 'special needs'
- we should try to develop our OWN pet project to fulfill
If the users "need" any binaries pre-supplied - some requests don't seem realistic
E.G. > Why on earth would they then use PRE SUPPLIED
binaries in first place ?
That was one precept to ~ why sources-based platforms were concieved !
(and virtual 'linux-within' chrooted development jail ~ environments)_
In reality ~ it seems the concept of 64-bit vs pure computing power_
is presently better served using SMP
(I.E. ~ Do You
USE distcc Caitlyn ?)
According to Gentoo - there are many Apps that do not adapt well to 64 bit;
And yes - there may be a performance "hit" to running in 64 bit mode !
still apply only primarily
to the individual's environment
> hardware - Linux savvy
- tasking ~ 'emperically' tested
It would seem a safe bet, most don't even use present inherent latency or tmpfs to best advantage
Why not then 1st master what is available vs pander to un-posted 'qualified' perfomance statements
Seems to me - The whole premise & strengths of FOSS;
were all about enabling unlimited self-empowered choice
NOT "Linux must rule the world"
And sure as H - - - shun MY distro gotta be 'bestest'
That wierd behaviour - is enshrined weekly in I.E. DWWeekly non-stop fanBois dissing * eating own !
