Yes and yes. This is more like Alienware (or is it Dell?) throwing things at the wall and wanting to see what sticks.

Re: Not convinced by rolling releases

Thing is though through the much ballyhooed official proposal, no one is suggesting that LTS should die so where's the fuss I wonder??? As long as there's LTS, frankly imho a rolling release solves the "why we can haz 1000 bugs interim everytime!!!" complain once and for all?

Re: Rolling release schedule in Canonical's near future?

@bimsebasse Agreed. I've always wondered about the same "what's with the LTS and the other 6 month release base?" dilemma. Plus how hard would it be to just reorg the same 2 way into proper same release numbering w/ LTS (needs better and improved bugs solving than the current situation obv...

Re: Ubuntu Phone NO, LinuxMint Phone YES.

Android uses the Linux kernel. Ubuntu for phones uses the Linux kernel. Jolla uses the Linux kernel. So not sure what you mean :wink: Umm I'm pretty clear about what Ubuntu for Android is, which to me looks like VM-ized app that I won't ever use. But I guess I read this GSMarena article wrong then ...

Jolla is a bit more orig no? I mean Ubuntu for phones use Android's kernel right? Kinda weird when you look at it in that perspective. i9100g on CM10.1 nightly user here :oops:

Re: Chromebook or not?

This one? Not a bad idea until you venture much further than just hashing assignments out. Also there's this nice potential of actually running a proper distro here but I'd wait until someone can figure a much less of a hassle in doing that (w/ LMDE maybe ;p~). It's cheap, should be more than fast ...

Re: The actual use of good hardware.

If you're an EX-overclocker, hardcore gamer or HW enthusiast, chances are you just build or order a badass system for future proofing. People with specialized professional needs such as high level CAD or distributed computing are of course exempt but for those aforementioned, we're just done with th...

siduction 2012.1 Desperado. Supposedly a friendlier aptosid fork... I think. I still dream for a Sid based Bodhi but Jeff would insist on a new full separate team to run and maintain that.

Re: ideal OS

Don't wanna come off as a nerd rage comment here since I've lost that mojo a few years back I think but... ideally you'd want an OS that can completely bridge x86, x86-64/AMD64 whatever to ARM computing experience. Let me explain... These days doesn't matter if you're young or a grumpy old *nix rebe...

@linuxviolin

Noted. I'm just wishing that HP would open it out but it's sure as hell won't happen in the near term (if ever..). Apparently they're more convinced that any microwave oven or printer manufacturer are the better licensee candidates.
