Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

Of course not. One week ago it was the latest thing. Usually security updates are more important than just some bugfixes.

Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

Linux they say is lightning fast. How can you improve on that?

Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

My point is that linux loves to update every 20 seconds. Sooner or later there will be an update that does not gel with the current configuration.

Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

Get is not the word I wanted. Gel in this case is slang, it means will not mix.

Is elementary OS Luna a better option or Bodhi?

I do not think there is a significant difference between about 100 distros of linux.

Re: Do you lead a Gangnam Style Life?

Yes, most people here majored in it. The result

1 -> 29.
