Seven months ago, I posted the first statistics of my Linux box. Now it's time to check again on it to see how it has behaved in these seven months. I'm not counting the old figures.
A. Number of attacks by trojans, spyware, or malware: 0. AGAIN!
B. Number of Kernel Panics (the Linux equivalent of Windows BSODs): 0
C. Number of system crashes: 0. Again!
D. Number of KDE crashes: 0 (No more crashes after updating my MEPIS 8.)
E. Number of computer freezes: 0. (Again!)
F. Number of programs that crashed: 0.
G. Number of times I've noticed slow system performance: 0. My Mepis has not slowed down at all!
H. Number of times I've explored, modified, or deleted system files making the system crash: 0. (I've learned more or have become more careful.)
I. Number of times I've explored, modified, or deleted system files WITHOUT making the system crash: Hard to say...maybe another 200 times. Certainly it is no less than that.
J. Number of times I actually needed to fiddle with the system: 1. (I had to use Konsole to enable my USB3 hard drive on MEPIS 8. The other systems didn't need it. (I'm not talking about XP. XP needed some special drivers and things for the job but I didn't bother to install them.)
K. Average time for reinstalling the whole system: 10 mins. (without disc imaging)
L. Average time for configuring the system the way I want it to be: 1 hour 30 mins. (without disc imaging)
M. Number of times I've partitioned my hard drive after installing Linux: 6. (to make room for my other Linux systems: Mandriva, Pardus, MiniNO, antiX and finally Mepis 11. Also, I've prepared another partition for Zenwalk!)
N. Minimum number of times I've tried other Linux distros (different from those I tried before): 6.
(Zenwalk, HeOS, Ubuntu, Austrumi, Vector, KNOPPIX)
O. Number of times the other distros I've tried have made my system crash: 0.
These numbers are so boring! ;) So boring that I'm extremely happy to see them! Many zeros, more satisfaction!
