Re: Arch is the most updated distro :D

wow this is pretty impressive...

although I'm skeptical of the Gentoo claim of 75% obsolete. One of the things I hated about Gentoo was how out of date it could get...unless you liked breaking things it felt like 95%! heh

arch: because it's only 45% obsolete!

If Arch is 45% obsolete, what is an unpatched installation of Vista?

That website is relatively inexpensive to design custom clothing (That hoodie would be 42 dollars with free shipping).

Re: Arch is the most updated distro :D

So far, I must say that it is a pleasure to update my Arch linux without any problem. Even when Arch is considered a bleeding-edge ditro, I have not had any problem while updating it. I wish all the distros where like Arch.

Re: Arch is the most updated distro :D

I don't get the 48%....

From what I can see, [core] has 350 packages (175 x 2 arches), 32 packages are flagged out of date, [extra] has 3982 packages with 309 flagged.  Note that each package has been counted twice (i686 and x86_64) as it was easier for me that way.

So unless a lot more need flagged, at this point of time ~10% are outdated.


Edit: I see...  He looked at these packages:

alsa-utils, cups, emacs, firefox, gcc, ghostscript-gpl, gimp, glibc, gnome-desktop, gnupg, httpd (apache), kdebase, linux, NetworkManager, openssh, pidgin, postgresql, python, ruby, xorg-server

So ruby and python will probably be counted as out of date, even though ruby-1.9 is in [testing] and python3 is in [community].
