Antergos Interview | LAS s29e08

Antergos is bringing Arch to the masses, but still keeps it simple. We chat with the founder of Antergos, formerly Cinnarch, about their future plans, and how they hope to improve Arch without taking away what makes it so great.

    Chris, my crystal ball is saying that btrfs is not going to be that successful. After Oracle acquired Sun, they stopped any serious development of it. My bet is that the ZFS kernel module will get more popular as people loose patience with waiting for brtfs to become more mature.
    It’s sad, but true.

    Drinking game idea: Take a shot every time Matt sniffs. Guaranteed to be wasted 2 minutes in.

    Loved that email about the dude’s family using various flavors of Ubuntu!

    Yes, my allergies are clearly ruining your day — I’m weeping over it, no really “User1000.”

    tltr: (shrugs)

    At the end of the day, what it really boils down to, (those two would make for really good drinking games as well) is that you must have allergies 365 days a year. You’ve been sniffing ever since you became co-host. Sure it’s not some kind of nervous twitch? I just can’t stand to watch the show anymore. (I’m sure you’re going to tell me that you don’t care, but guess what, I don’t care that you don’t care. lulz)

    Don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

    You have no idea, I probably went through about 5 cans of last week and when I ran out I had to resort to shampoo – I just can’t get enough.
    But no really, this was pretty fun for me too. Just kind of wanted to see if and how you’d respond. Sometimes you don’t get to talk as much on some of the shows, so just wanted to see if you’d ignore me or if you’d actually say something back with some backbone.
    In all reality though, don’t take anything I said seriously (doubt you did anyway). I actually think you’ve done a really good job on the show, a much better job than I ever would. And allergies 365 must really suck, I nearly collapse when I get them once a year.
    Anyway, keep up the good work!
