    Default SprezzOS Is Indeed Trying To Be A Faster Linux

    Phoronix: SprezzOS Is Indeed Trying To Be A Faster Linux

    SprezzOS, a Linux distribution that most people have likely not heard of, is aiming for real change with their open-source operating system. They previously claimed their ambitions were to become the "most robust, beautiful and performant Linux", and it turns out they are indeed trying to at least live up to their performance goals...

    Raptorial sounds awesome. I prefer Aptitude's syntax and output to that of APT's, but I'll gladly trade that preference for a speed-up.

    I don't get it. If you're going to go to the trouble of reinventing the wheel...again, why not do something better? Something like file-based dependencies, sane packaging format for developers, and even the ability to track default ownerships/permissions on installed files. Oh right, that's all already done with rpm and yum, or even better yet zypper. But hey, as long as your new implementation has a good strong focus on artwork for a CLI system....*facepalm*

    This isnt about a new format or creating something new. This is just about fixing apt.

    What? Not a single link to SprezzOS but two for yourself? C'Mon Michael...

    Anyway sounds interesting, will check it out sometime.

    Will you do a PTS benchmark of this distro compared to Arch, CentOS, and others?

    There's nothing wrong in reinventing the wheel, as long as u make it better...
    In this case they're trying to maintain compatibility. So this is the better kind of improvement they could be doing.
    Contrary to Canonical that only tries to isolate themselves and force you onto their platform by further branching in terms of compatibility, these guys are actually trying to make Linux better, not just their own distro.

    And i salute the SrezzOS developer team for this!

    Default but no Fenrus Linux coverage? ;-)

    No coverage of Fenrus Linux, which has pretty much the fastest software update around, and uses the Phoronix Test Suite for its performance measurements ? ;-)

    (yeah yeah this is a shameless plug ;-)
