(Just curious) Fellow GNU/Linux users - what made you decide on this OS?

As per title, is post is born out of idle curiosity. I'm not looking for "Because it's the best!!!111!" responses - more wondering what that moment was that made you think "Wait...I can do that?" and not look back.

FWIW - mine was when I'd spent hours trying to get Windows XP installed on a laptop with no optical drive back in ~05 or so. Basically had to install onto the laptop hard drive using an IDE>mobile-PATA adapter and move the disk back in after. Windows gave me umpteen BSODs, Ubuntu, however, Just WorkedTM. To be fair I then had to do battle with ndiswrapper, but all in all it was a much better experience.

Peanut gallery - lend me your thoughts on this matter.

Purpose of adding a static route?

Reddit - Sat, 2017-02-25 00:27


I'm curious about the purpose of adding a static route is? I was messing around with some tracerouting and noticed a route going to sfmix.org, upon further investigation it looks like a peering network, and on the site it has a "Route Server" page with IPs to add 'static route' to. I'm just curious about what this is, and if I could benefit from adding a static route on my home linux server to sfmix.org's route server. this might sound stupid but i'm pretty clueless when it comes to advanced networking. please let me know! thx!
