lang72dowdle: And I am a RHCE
:)
mazeanything above that while possible (and sold by some folks) is overpriced for it's power (unless you're doing nuclear explosion simulation or something)
weedardowdle: Do sites still use Active X?
ne0centios 5 almost here
metalikmorning all
ne0but where
ionixhi is JDK findable in centos repos?
mazeoh here there everywhere
dowdlelang72: I've been one since 2.1x... whatever it was. I got RHCE when RHL7.2 was king. RH all the way.
weedarI can't remember last time I saw a site that still used Active X
dowdleweedar: Yeah, Windows Updates site.
ne0some old p0rn still have activex
bkurt78lang72: I agree with you on Novell, I do kind of like their SLED product for desktop as much as I hate to admit it.
mazethen you guys beat me, I started at RH 5.1
lang72dowdle: :) I just use RH as one of several tools, but the main general one. OpenBSD for firewall, BSD for the jails (looking into xen now), and so on :)
weedardowdle: hah! :D
lang72bkurt78: ;)
dowdlelang72: You should try OpenVZ if you like jails.
mazeyou only need windows update though if you're running windows - so it's not really an issue - is it?
bkurt78lang72: I'm hoping RHEL5 desktop comes around and gets some good attention from the Red hat folks.
dowdleMaZe: But you should be allowed to do Windows updates with Firefox!
lang72dowdle: I know. Just using FreeBSD 5.x of old habit. I think ports on FreeBSD is a bit bothersome to administrate. Easier with yum
mazewell, that's a seperate issue
lang72bkurt78: RHEL5 have a good technological platform for a desktop. RHEL4 did not have it. Gnome was not really ready. HAL and so on makes a huge difference with plug and play
MaZe: 5.1 was a tough start. A lot of issues with 5.1 and 5.0
Back in the days
dowdleWell, I'd like to see RHEL on the desktop but if they keep their 18 month (with RHEL5 24 months) devel cycle... that ain't cool... in "Linux time".
mazethat's why I can't wait to install CentOS 5 on my laptop... finally have peace and quiet (compared to current messed up ubuntu)
evil_stevewhen you had to walk uphill *both* ways to school?
dowdleI'd say any RHEL based desktop system would have to cycle down to at least a 12 month devel cycle.
mazedowdle: I don't agree - that's exactly what companies/enterprises want - nice and slow , nice and stable, nice and RHEL
evil_steveMaZe: we want the second option, without the first option
dowdleMaZe: They have had a "corporate desktop" for a long time now. I'm talking about for the mythical home user.
bkurt78lang72: oh yeah indeed. I'm doing a 30 day eval of rhel 5 desktop right now and it is pretty nice. Although there's nothing there that Fedora can't do at this point.
mazedowdle: the truth is the home user doesn't matter
and will follow in time after the corporate desktops anyway
besides - notice that vistas devel time was 5 years...
lang72bkurt78: Fedora is the testing ground for the desktop. The main advantage Fedora has is Fedora extras
