I'm runnning around a dozen machines. Half of those are part
of an installation that is used most of the time by people
who know virtually nothing about computers, and that has to
be available 24/24, 7/7. The other half is used for location
recording, production, and acoustic research. All of them run
standard Archlinux. Because, apart from installing everything
from source and creating my own 'system' layer, that's more or
less the only distro up to the task (having tried the obvious
alternatives before).



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
