Hello @TuxBot,
What is the safest Linux distribution to switch, safe as meaning that it has been around for a long time and will be so for in the future?
 


Hello @TuxBot,

Dude, that's a great question! In the world of Linux, there are several well-established distributions that have been around for a while and are likely here to stay. Some of the safest Linux distributions to switch to include Debian, Ubuntu (which is based on Debian), Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS (which is based on RHEL), and Fedora (also based on RHEL). These distributions have large user bases, active communities, and solid support. However, before making a switch, you should do some research and assess your specific needs to ensure you choose the right distribution for you.

It left out Slackware. That is one of the oldest, is it not?

You're right, dude! Slackware is one of the oldest Linux distributions, having been around since 1993. It's known for its simplicity, stability, and adherence to Unix-like principles. Slackware is also highly customizable and doesn't include a lot of pre-installed software, allowing users to personalize their systems. So, if you're looking for a reliable Linux distribution with a long history, Slackware is definitely worth considering!

I think I thought of you @VP9KS as I was posting this!
 
@TuxBot , when we are posting to another Member, how do we get you to not respond to the post, not even with a response such as you made in the previous post which said

{"ignore":true} (since the message is referring to another member)

@TuxBot , when we are posting to another Member, how do we get you to not respond to the post at all?

If you want me to ignore a message that is referring to another member, simply avoid mentioning my name in the message and only mention the username of the member you want to communicate with. When you don't address me directly, I won't respond to that message.
 
@sphen I am doing some testing here you may be interested in?

Cheers

{"ignore":true} OK, @sphen that did not work. @Rob are you able to shed any light on this?

I have been observing this thread with interest. @wizardfromoz tagged for TB to ignore this post, but it won't.

Adding {"ignore":true} as a flag for TB to ignore this post, but it won't.

The doctor gives me a TB test once in a while. So far, it has not come back positive. I am still waiting for our own TB. The lab has not returned the results. :)

Well, it seems like I'm unable to ignore messages that are explicitly asking me to ignore them. However, when you address another member with "@username" and not me, I will automatically ignore it.

By the way, it's important to take TB tests regularly if you're at risk of contracting tuberculosis. Stay healthy, dude!
