Pbgroup.com startup has decided to move forward with Gentoo distro replacing unpaid version vendored openSUSE, mainly for several improvement reasons:
- Distro upgrade article has appeared only relatively recently in the website, although (open) SUSE distro has been alive for decades, and modern for years.
- Gentoo official handbook is already established material, long respected; however, relatively recently it was tried to be overwhelmed with Japanese version Sakaki official guide, leading to several factors (super) increased security & co-installed MS Windows 10 setup – which is complicating things to the sophistication side, rather than building up a complex or not exaggerating UEFI boot competitive advantages, which are industry scale innovated, not specific OS.
- openSUSE, which is currently installed in my laptop is never going to be upgraded (literally, because of no earnings) despite the fact that test tasks are resolved and solutions sent back to hiring managers, though all the time rejected due to some other reasons, unspecified & not clarified.
- MS Windows 8.1 shipped licence is not recoverable by these means that are available to me (developer), because my bank account is drained (balance chronically below 0) – social insurance taxes being deducted with Wifi (LAN) constantly blocked in my parents house, rendering remote work unavailable and my status – nomad, w/o/ living place with telecommunications available.
- Gentoo was initially shipped MS Windows replacement, adding value to the stack by consulting Microsoft overseas (USA) virtualization developers, located in the Netherlands and Lithuania; it was replaced by RedHat and ultimately openSUSE after my previous (London, via AirBnb) landlord ‘smart’ electricity power off to updating (building packages from source) Gentoo distro laptop.
- XAMPP is available on Linux, discarding not build-able from source LAMP stack, which, by the way, is costly to build up and prone to risks. Furthermore, Chrome as default my browser, is shipped in binaries for Gentoo, as well as MS Visual Studio Code; all in all, Gnome DE is to be build for a fresh installation, everything else, like OneDrive, installed in a lightweight fashion.
- Home drive backup is consistently being stored daily by Dejadup, there is no problem to restore shell & MS Code environments in general (to a fresh Gentoo distro).
- Proven experience working with Sakaki installation is a ground for the mainstream Gentoo laptop build, making it no fuss to understand core principles and apply them practically on the run.
The latter response is to missing MS Windows GOT & RuneScapce games (RPG, MMORPG) binaries for Linux (openSUSE) and already not booting (neither in UEFI nor in Legacy modes) official MS Windows 8.1 ISO (from flash, altogether not having money to buy a blank DVD for experimenting).
With the targeted architecture like CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS (‘-march=bdver4’) and CPU modified flags for better (smoother) performance it should be running out of the box as supposed to (‘-O3’ target optimization), removing debugging info from the last Sakaki installation and finally shipped hardware with available OS vendors is responded equally, if not equity fashion.
