Another day another small update. It doesn't happen every time, but it's good to see the FOSS team working to optimize their code on a regular basis.

Some bizarre religious sect, started by an Arch Bishop.

 

I thought they were a breakaway group of freedom fighters named because they are arch enemies of the shareholders of the Redmond Faction. Them guys that are after world domination in the pc market and eventually folks lives in general. :pirate:

From Wikipedia, quite an accurate description of what the Arch community provides to the Linux community.

 

You used to be such a Debian fanboi, dude? What happened to you? ;)

I still love me some Debian.

 

I install Debian on every system I set up and maintain for friends and family.

Less work for me you might say.

 

My own desktop, which is for my entertainment, I run Arch.

It gets exciting sometimes. Not what I want on a client computer, but perfect for my itinerant tinkerer nature.

I remember Arch. I just got tired of the updating. I'm like a cat. I prefer the same thing day after day. Slackware only has a security update about every month or so and they're usually Mozilla updates.

Nice big update today, and a good amount of shrink.

The skrink seems to have hit the skids I'm afraid. Above is today's extra and the last two times I have updated were additions too, one was approximately 75 MB. Did not have time to post the exact figures. lets hope the shrink resumes next time. :'(

Yes, we unfortunately don't see shrink every update.

But it's nice to see whenever it happens.

We don't ever see it in our other OSes.

Another good day in codebase shrink. 5% reduction of installed size in some base packages, probably everyone has most of them installed.

It's Sunday and that means upgrade and backup everything in the house. Sorry, reverse that, backup and upgrade.

 

It's a good one today. Linux kernel, headers, man pages, gcc, and some other stuff.

Big update from KDE and nVidia today.

Not doing so well on shrinking the codebase.
