Re: What has happened to [K12OSN] K12Linux



Hi,
You can add my vote to the growing list of "Confused Linux Promoters" a.k.a Linux Sys Admin & Users you find it near to impossible to believe what has happened to Linux. As an early adopter of K12LTSP I was delighted by the ease and coherent approach to setting up and run a thin-client system, now with K12linux it seems nothing short of a miracle if the server doesn't ..... ugh ..... crash, something akin to the "Blue Screen of Death". Although I do agree that that Linux has progressed dramatically in a few short years it has also become a daunting challenge to manage & maintain. The development of utilities like Yum & Smart do make updates easier, however when an application doesn't work trying to find the problem & resolve it is no easier than finding a coherent entry in the M$ registry. I have always adopted the "KISS" principle maybe it time to take a step back and try that approach to Linux, least it go the way of the "Dodo bird"

After having spent better part of the afternoon just trying to setup K12Linux and really questioning why, I ran across an article this afternoon that kind of hit the nail on the head. It is an article written by someone I believe most of you know; Carla Schroder. I say she hit the nail on the head because she points out the real coming demise of Linux, especially Red Hat (Fedora mostly so far, but Ubuntu is doing their share, although the GNOME people are adding their own level of confusion) which I also believe is doing their own "Vista" self destruction. Take a moment and read the article, then go back and compare K12LTSP to K12Linux and tell me I'm wrong.

Live Hard Drive install shouldn't mangle the ifcfg-* files

Thanks to Almquist Burke for discovering this critical issue in the previous spin. I respun the images as "stable2".

Going ahead with formal announcement probably tomorrow.
