Non GNU Linux Chimera

Hello:

Just stumbled on to this article.

Do note the spelling*.

Best,

A.

* Chimera, not Chimaera.

Ha! I just came here to post the same thing :-)  The guy should have picked a different name...

Re: Non GNU Linux Chimera

Well, before long Chimaera will be old stable then fade into history so it probably won't affect us that much. Some folks searching on the other spelling could even end up here which isn't a bad thing . . . smile

Re: Non GNU Linux Chimera

I like this distribution — dinit as PID1, FreeBSD user land, Alpine's package manager and GNOME as the default desktop. It even has ed in the base system. Nice. EDIT: and it uses doas instead of sudo and musl libc so it cannot be used with systemd.

Just posted a screenshot of the live version:

Note that Alpine Linux is also a non-GNU Linux (one of the reasons I like it actually, GNU is bloat) because that uses busybox for the user land utilities.

And this is the person who judged me nonstop over disagreements of things I did...

Meh...

I looked at that page and I noticed a few things:

They are against loud anti-systemd nonsense and  far right movements at the same time.

Only problem is, systemd, was created by a corporation, thus... it falls in that exact territory.

@Head_On_a_stick

You do make me wonder if I should in fact leave devuan forums yet again.

Your caring about memory space while not caring about cpu usage tells me you fall in the suckless dogmatic category and thus you would be just as welcome as me there.

You might not be paying attention, but I will send just in case.

I am sure you know more than me about everything there is in the world

Did you not notice the "..." and the text beneath those excellent words of advice? HoaS had posted an unnecessarily crude, knee-jerk rant/response to charliebrownau. It was deleted/edited by one of our mods. In response, HoaS has apparently moved on from this forum because he has not been seen here since. Or maybe you like talking to the "dead"? It's a little creepy. Maybe try a seance . . .

Ahhh I didn't see that from fsmithred...

Well that restores my interest in seeing him comment here again...

How crude was it?  Now I am mega curious as to how crude it was.

Btw, he isn't actually dead... he just isn't around on this forum.

Dead means he is no longer alive, so... yeah not quite.

I am going to guess it was some dirty type of joke about charlie being pregnant or something stupider, etc...

Which, if so, is even more creepy than me commenting to him here.

I think that Shakyamuni would disapprove of this questioning of someone's mental status, when the real issue is the firefight over racial and political issues between charlie and hoas. It was your prior evasive response that led to zapper's further questioning, so if he does have any mental chaos on this topic it is probably due to this evasiveness. Maybe deleting hoas's response (whoever did that, I'm not sure myself) was not the greatest idea?

Behavior is not someone else's fault. We are all 100% responsible for our actions and own the consequent resultants. External approval or disapproval is irrelevant noise.

So its against the rules to guess then?

Or is it something else?

...

@andyprough

It was racial/political?

Yeah... I didn't know this... forget it then. Erase my other comment if you want golinux.

Re: Non GNU Linux Chimera

FYI . . . I rarely mess with anyone's posts because it is my hope that by leaving useless nonsense visible, the perpetrator(s) will eventually be so mortified that they will change their behavior. However . . . as this thread proves, it doesn't seem to work . . .

Re: Non GNU Linux Chimera

@golinux depends on who you are talking about.

I have seen it work, sometimes and other times, no way.

Depends on how thin skinned the perpetrator is. If they are thin enough, they will eventually give up.

zapper . . . iirc I have corrected you before on the assumption that HoaS wrote that text. He did not. That post was edited and the original text replaced by an administrator. This was the complete edited post:
