Fedora LTS?

Wikipedia migrated from Red Hat Linux 9 (WTF??) and Fedora (certainly not a wise idea for a large deployment that doesn't want lots of moving parts) to Ubuntu.

Some people started raising that inexistence of some sort Fedora LTS is a problem. But, I agree with Mike McGrath post that Fedora serve the niche of a fast paced distro in the Linux ecosystem. Ever since my first day with Fedora , Fedora have been an exciting place to test out new technologies of the FOSS world. Yes it crashes here and there sometimes - eg: AIGLX and compiz during the early days, new Xorg, etc, but thats a common risk when you are choosing to live with this fast paced distro. CentOS filled the gap perfectly for my server needs, combined with Fedora EPEL, CentOS is just right. The only thing missing from CentOS currently is only Livna, (I don't really like RPMForge), once RPMFusion provide packages for CentOS, perhaps it'll be my main distro choice for installing in desktops that i'm lazy to tak…

Code Geass: Zero Requiem

Its been a while since i last post something in this blog. A bit of a change from the usual tech posts, an anime-related post - Code Geass's R2 final episode.

Since Eureka Seven, its been a while that I last experienced withdrawal after a series. Throughout the 2 seasons, Code Geass have been a very enjoyable ride. The story are well written and well presented. The non-stop feeding of cliffhangers, the plot where good and evil are different based on perception, made it a very enjoyable and fun ride.
