I strongly do not agree with Ladislav on some parts of his review.
Hasn't he anything else than to talk about the absence of a stupid, old and dead text editor?
Is the resolution a problem? There's res= parameter. And you want to know why I didn't use DDC since now? Because of compatibility problems with some buggy OLD monitors.
The length of boot? The distro autoconfigures everything automatically and it is one of the most compatible distro out there, that can even boot on Firewire/USB CD/DVD readers and installed on USB/Firewire drives too. We support DRI from every DRI-capable video card and OpenGL from NVIDIA and ATI. To get both of the worlds working nicely, we have introduced some extra steps.
We support NetworkManager stack (from Project Utopia): there isn't any other distro that supports things like us.
The author wondered why we dropped Gentoo Linux Installer, oh my God. just ask this to the people that have lost their partitions... Bah...
He didn't mention XsistenCe, NoMachine NX support, Gentoo Linux based distro migration (using the Upgrade function), XGL (IIRC), etc...
A poor and superficial review made by a 47-year (IIRC) man. We are the 2nd GNU/Linux generation, let's make things that just work without any political way of thinking.
And for the "mga" stuff. Well, I can't answer, but he had 11 months of time to inform me about his problems. We autoconfigure Matrox video cards if the lspci VGA line contains:
- Code: Select all
lspci | grep ' VGA ' | grep -i "Matrox"
So, it sounds very weird to me...
