Our ALE Central Meeting for Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013
at 7:30pm will be:
Dynamically Dueling Distros:
A Multi-Part Compare & Contrast Presentation
– RHEL/CentOS – presented by Jim Kinney
– SuSE SLES/SLED – covered by Allen Beddington
– Gentoo – discussed by Lawrence Hamblin
plus, pending travel opportunity,
– Bodhi – with Mike Harrison
THE PLAN is to cover strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes,
installation, usage, libraries, package managers, configuration,
security and programming of each distro in 10 minutes.
(Yeah, right!) As distro choice is almost a religious process,
be sure to bring your favorite barbs and jeers as well as your
misty-eyed remembrances. Please: No rotten fruits or other
spoiled vegetation as some of this material will stink enough
already (see gnome3).
– There is still room for a volunteer for Debian or Slackware.
– We may need to do a Ubuntu vs Fedora grudge match later.
The meeting will be held at Emory Law School in our
usual Gambrel Hall, room 1C venue.
Our meeting time frame is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm
