Looking for Hell of Software
I have been frequently quoting in other threads about my old computer which is a Pentium III. I have two out of three BSD CDs lying around while the third I lost to a filesystem damage :(. I had a bad experience of FreeBSD. Firstly, the installation is slow and not as independent as Linux OS's. I was very much attracted by the BSD's appetite, which said it needed 24 MB RAM minimum. Secondly, the KDE 4 desktop is on CD 2 and 3, while the other BSD'ers had (just) said you can enjoy FreeBSD from the first disk. I cannot enjoy without CD3 then! All good editors are on CD 3 as well. I became dis hearted and dropped the idea of downloading the third CD again. I saw very little amount of software on FreeBSD disks, unlike the overbrimming Linux disks.
I was looking for hell lot of software ........
I browsed the FTP repo of openSUSE 11 (which my friend will soon be bringing for me). I can't go on with Ubuntu any more because I hate downloading software. I want it right in my hands.
Maybe I am misinterpreting BSD!
Should I redownload BSD disc 3 and ENJOY it? Or should I install openSUSE?
