This is my Debian Sarge Netinstall. From command line to X in a couple of minuites. Probably my favorite Linux install yet. :D
You can see I've got my Lain theme installed, along with Scite and Fluxbox. None of those evil desktop enviroments :) I've got nothing installed that I don't need.
Also, the little person sitting on my window is the cutest example of a GPL program.
It's called MACOPIX, and all does is checks your email and looks cute XD
The best thing is that through the netinstall, I setup my usb mouse, I can now mount thumbdrives!

I vote for GNU+Linux!:#1: POSIX do not allow filename that contains `/'. RMS is right at least here:lmao:
Xentalion's avatar
True. I shall change it.
Well, KDE and GNOME sux more =P
gnulinuxman's avatar
No they don't!! KDE and GNOME are awesome! :D
Xentalion's avatar
So is Fluxbox! :D It's all FOSS!
gnulinuxman's avatar
OK, Mr. Masochist...
Xentalion's avatar
but it's not painful, its fast. GNOME and KDE are painfully slow. :(
gnulinuxman's avatar
I don't mind the "pain" of running KDE on my Pentium II =P

Oops, seems like I posted a little blog article here:)

Btw, GNU/Hurd has much more perspectives on becoming totally unified, than GNU/Linux. It's translators concept is amazing! What if you don't need to be aware at all, is your data retrieved from a local filesystem or remote, usual file or a file inside a tar/gz/zip/7z, encrypted with any algorithm. Or maybe it isn't a file at all? Say, its an extract of RSS feeds mixed up with some FTP directory listing. Or do you enjoy having a full GNUHurd system with any app ready to run right from the Internet at any time without installation as if it is were already here, in the filesystem? No more logical protocol usage! Watch video through streaming smtp and connect to your home computer's filesystem via irc tunelling through https:lmao: After all, get a Tor translator and run ALL your network activity via onion routers (though it might be impolite:)) No, Linux isn't the limit:excited:

I have to try GNU/Hurd, it sounds interesting, after all, it's written in C++. But I'm only suggesting that my packages are unified because I like them and can use them well together.
GNUlancer's avatar
You mean sources? Well, they're unified for you, cause you can easily manage 'em:)... Probably I should try ebuild, gentoo folks are so passionate about it:)
GNUlancer's avatar
Pretty!:clap:

But why do you think integrated desktops are evil? Because they're bloat:windows:? Right, but they're much more unified than the rest of the system, and thus comfortable to configure and use. I mean whole desktops, including user apps.
Imagine if the :windows: had tons of usable universal desktop-integrated programs with ONE interface, ONE way to configure and manage and ONE directory standard. Fortunately it's impossible:) ortherwise there would be no non-geek GNULinux users, cause most of them love it's unified and compatible nature (especially the fact there are usually hundreds of apps included, no need to install), not aware of opensourceness, freedom etc.

The evil part is a joke. :) I know that almost everyone else uses desktop enviros such as KDE or GNOME, but I've found that they really don't work as well for me. I'm more of a programmer then a normal user. :D
Actually, if you build packages from source, you get a much more unified system. And my system is really unified by what I want on my PC.

Sorry, i meant desktop, im just so used to typing windows after evil :P
Xentalion's avatar
The evil part is a joke :) I just don't like desktop icons, and I like my windowing system to load quickly. I prefer the macish bar or the Fluxbox menu.
Ekeichi's avatar
Evil windows environments? They aren't evil, in fact, running fluxbox on this computer would be a waste of processing power.
Xentalion's avatar
No, this is a pentium II, 300mhz :) The rest of my processing power goes to quake 2 or mplayer.
Ekeichi's avatar
*this* computer being my own computer which is a pentium 4 3.5 ghz. No desktop environment is evil, thats all Im saying.
Xentalion's avatar
It's all what you like best. I like Fluxbox, and other people like desktop environments. To me, desktop environments are bloated and slow, but to you, a desktop environment is a useful or good thing. :) This is the whole Vim vs Emacs, GNOME vs KDE, and Linux vs BSD concept. It's great to have a customized system, but fighting over who's way is best will just bring us(the FOSS community) down.
Ekeichi's avatar
Yeah. Some might seem bloated, but not 3v1L
