Questionable Desktop Operating System

May 28th, 2008 makii 1 comment

Of course I usually prefer Linux over Windows. It’s more flexible, especially for a developers’ needs, despite the IDE I use for Java I have a powerful shell to fulfil arbitrary tasks, it just looks neater than the standard Windows desktop and I just love it!

So I was pretty lucky when, finally, my new workstation arrived:

  • Dual Xeon E5420 @ 2.5 GHz
  • 4GB RAM
  • 150GB HD
  • nVidia Corporation Quadro FX 570 (never mind, I’m just interested in the two DVI-exits)
  • Gigabit Ethernet

So far, so good. I had already the latest Ubuntu disk to set up the box, when my nice co-worker told me we had to use CentOS as OS, as this one is also running on production.

And then we found these quotes on the net (original source lost, unfortunately):
