SLED 11: a distro for businesses, not idealists

Jay

Re: One very nice thing about SuSE

We are a Novell shop and hate SLES because of YAST! YAST is crap! It Sucks! I want to kill whoever developed it. Now back to replacing SLES servers with CentOS and Red Hat

Dear Obama: Please consider open-source a waste of your time

Jay
Linux

Open source saves our company $500,000.00 a year

And that saved money goes to hiring more employees and increased training for our IT staff. Our CFO gets it. We are profitable and are expanding in this economic slump. Thanks to Linux, Apache/Tomcat and Java we are saving $3,000,000/year on licensing alone and we are more productive then we were with our old closedsource model.

Novell cutting more heads?

Jay
Boffin

Typical Novell

Just start to get somewhere with something just about decent and they fuck it all up.

Same old Novell, if they would just invest in their software and stop chasing the fad they could really make an impact on IT.

Oh and we are a Novell shop. `hangs head in shame`

Novell dishes up OpenSUSE 11.1 details

Jay
Boffin

Did they ditch Yast yet?

That bloated steaming pile of shit is what makes SuSE crap!

The one thing I have discovered in my career in IT is that Novell software gives me tourettes!

Shit! So lets change our naming again so that Vista (aka steaming pile of dung) has nothing to do with our new name ... Windows 7.

Red Hat: Go support yourselves, Fedora users

Jay
Boffin

Re: "loaded SuSE 10.3. EVERYTHING just worked!"

I am sorry but I find that hard to believe.

Novell forces us to run SuSE 10 to run any of their services on Linux. We (us Linux admins that is) hate it. Please Novell just give us RPMs and we will install it on Red Hat or CentOS.

To get back on topic, I agree that Fedora 9 is whacked, so whacked in fact that we deployed CentOS 5.2 for our latest desktop image.

RE: Does this mean the end for The Pirate Bay, et. al?

Nope!

Only a sucker would pay for both these services and even attempt to have anything resembling a real life.

Digital downloads are still years off, especially since we can get better quality rips for free with no DRM.

Wake up and smell the JAVA Microsoft!

Lenovo throws arms and legs around SMBs

Jay

@Mark Dempster

Actually the quality has gone down hill. I love the IBM branded t series thinkpads they were tough and could take a beating. The new Lenovo seem to be cheaply made. They remind me of the old R series stuff except I don't think they will stand up as well.

OpenSUSE 11 a redemptive OS with a Mactastic shine

Jay
Boffin

@Matthew

Actually we are a huge Novell customer and we try to avoid SuSE as much as possible. We have even gone as far as installing SuSE10, installing <novell product>, then ripping off the binaries and required libs and run it on CentOS.

YaST (not sure the version but it seems to reappear every now and then) has a documented bug (with Novell support) that if you just start YaST and do not change ANYTHING it will sometimes overwrite your custom changes. This is why we rename the yast binaries on all out SuSE boxen. Red Hat ditched Linuxconf years ago for this same reason.

YaST needs to die, it is bloated and buggy and a steaming pile of crap!

YaST = Yet another SHITTY Tool we are going to force you to use like it or not.

Mine is the one with the CentOS and Ubuntu boot cds to nuke all the SuSE installs

In that size of an environment you should really give Linux (for the server) a try.

Simple to set up and totally free. Add on free email and backup and you can save several thousand on software alone.

Whoa!!

The first thing I do when I encounter SuSE is wipe it and install Red Hat or Ubuntu (depending on the roll).
