Blogging Platforms

I started blogging last year in December. Since then I’ve switched between a lot of platforms. I’m going to talk about them.

Wordpress Then I switched to Wordpress.com. Wordpress.com is the version, in which Wordpress hosts the site, and gives you a sub-domain.

Debian is one of the old distros which is being developed since 1993 and its development is not going to stop anytime soon. Also Debian project supports any given specific version for atleast 2-3 years. Thats the reason why a lot of distros use Debian as its base. Even Ubuntu is using Debian a…

Its very light-weight distro, and it install very few core packages at the time of installation. Also one get all the latest packages as Arch Linux is rolling release distro. Also Arch users get access to Arch User Repository aka AUR which is a comprehensive repository with tons of packages. One can say that AUR contain all the packages that you can find on any other distro.
