What Linux distros are used by Stallman? Anonymous 11/20/2020 (Fri) 17:04:08 No. 6452
I've heard in an older video that Linus Torvalds uses Fedora, and I read on Stallman's webpage that he presently uses a newer distro called Trisquel GNU/Linux.
There's a whole board for asking this kind of stuff.
>>6453 however OP would be better-advised to have sex rather than discuss the distros of linux used by stallman

I noticed that concerning Gentoo it appears to be a meme to use pictures of Richard Stallman saying things like, "install Gentoo"....but it appears that legit GNU folks don't really get behind Gentoo all that strongly. Is this a psyop? Is this a deception to get people to use a distro that is more compromised by the corporate military industrial complex? I am very curious of this, friends. It is on my mind. Here is what is on gnu.org about Gentoo: here is what gnu.org says about Gentoo: >"Gentoo GNU/Linux >Gentoo includes installation recipes for a number of nonfree programs in its primary package system."
>>6453 Ah ok, my bad. Sorry about that. It is also sort of a conspiracy thread as well.
>>6455 the fact that the name and logo are stupid is reason enough to regard it with suspicion.
>>6457 Also the founder quite for a few years and worked for Microsoft.
>>6458 *quit still, gentoo is bad ass
First of all, it's GNU/Linux. Second, these are the Stallman approved distros: https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.en.html
sry pls feel free to move this thread to /tech/
>>6461 penguins are very suspicious creatures. perhaps associated with occult lore
Why are you asking this here? /tech/ needs more love.
>>6455 It is an attempt by trolls to trick those who are unfamiliar with Linux to try to install one of the most complicated distros
>>6454 What kind of people does Stallman have sex with?
Is there a Gentoo-like distro that only serves free software?
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Fedora, is in fact, CIA/Fedora, or as I've recently taken to calling it, CIA plus Fedora.
>>6468 That's very interesting. To be honest all of my experiences with Fedora were pretty good, functionality wise and stability wise. I could do a lot of things on Fedora that were not working for me on other distros.
>>6469 Like what?
>>6470 like it seemed a lot of community shilling and conspiratorial stuff ceased from occuring on my computer...like random connection issues this was a few years back...maybe it was that the CIA wanted me to use their distro or exert some further influence or control over me
>>6467 gentoo. it's just a matter of changing your package.use file.
>>6470 i gave a copy of fedora on usb to a homeless person who had similar issues and he said similarly that fedora caused some stuff that was going on to cease

Your machine is incapable of meeting your excessive expectations of it. Even the lowly Intel Atom line of CPUs out-perform the Pentium N3540. Once you go beyond basic email and simple web-browsing, that machine simply is not going to cope. >Hi everyone, sadly all recommendations did not change anything. However I've been testing a Fedora 33 live image with Xfce and things works perfectly, I've been in more than three meetings with Google Meet (even sharing my screen) and one with Zoom and had no problem at all. I know my hardware isn't very good, but I was sure the problems were not all due to my machine. All my experiences and "experiments" with this issue suggest to me that this is a Debian related issue as I had the same trouble with Debian-based distros. I think I will change to Fedora permanently as this solved my problem. Thank you all for your help and your time.
