Thread: You know you've been using openSUSE for too long when...

  1. #1

    Default You know you've been using openSUSE for too long when...

    1. You always hang around after shutting down to check the computer actually powers off.
    2. You don't post a forum response until at least after Henk asks the OP which openSUSE version.
    3. You're still calling GRUB2's recovery boot option `fail-safe'.
    4. You successfully suppress the urge to start a forum post with `well actually...'
    5. You remember the `good old days' of kernel 2.6.x that seemed to last forever.
    6. You think that bile-colored green might actually look good on most of a desktop wallpaper.
    7. You know the first openSUSE was not version 1.0 but version 10.2.
    8. You've forgotten or never knew that tumbleweed is actually a type of plant.
    9. You perform a full re-install of openSUSE just to help out a forum poster or prove a point.
    10. You don't post a forum response until at least after Henk's request for code tags.
    11. You've made over a dozen backups of your /etc/fstab.
    12. You're still devoting an entire partition to /var/.
    13. You remember the days of Blowfish password encryption.
    14. You wish you still had box-set for your latest openSUSE installation media.
    15. You keep a copy of $HOME/.*rc on your USB pen which you carry with you everywhere.
    16. You'd prefer to call the current YaST by the name `YaST3'.
    17. You think `man bash' is actually a useful forum response.
    18. You use KDE and GNOME on alternate days just to keep a balanced experience.
    19. You don't post a forum response until Henk has moved the post from one subforum to another.
    20. You cannot suppress the urge to finish numbered lists on an arbitrarily round number.

    Essential, though breaking #20:
    21. You relate eras in your life to: S.u.S.E, SuSE, SUSE, openSUSE

    22. You discriminate whether a whimsical post should go to `Soapbox' or `General Chit-Chat'

    Haha! Nice one

    ROTFL! X'-)


    I will not actually tell which ones I like more ;-)

    Some more:

    21. You still think LILO was a good thing.
    22. You have to stop your fingers from typing SuSE.

    STOP spying on me!

    and my additions:

    2*. You know that yast2 -IS- openSUSE, and pledge to slay it's enemies.
    2*. You are adamant that the creators of OBS should get the Nobel Prize.



    P.S. Well done

    You only do that with old unreliable hardware.

    The good old days were when it was kernel 1.something.

    Not for a forum poster. But I have done it to get information for a bug report. Hmm, that reminds me ...

    I'm inclined to think that would give you an unbalanced experience.

    n. You smile any time you see either hendersj or Dexter1979 tell someone
    on the openSUSE Facebook post that the forums or IRC are where they
    should ask for help, not on Facebook.

    These are all good but #8 hit a nerve here - after a couple of weeks of
    strong winds (eastern Colorado) those "real" tumbleweeds were piled roof-
    high in places and actually closing some roads.

    The unpleasant connotations of the name name will keep me off that version
    for a while!

    #? You change between completely ignoring "Opensuse", "OpenSuSE" and mentioning "openSUSE" at least 5 times in the first two sentences of your reply
