My *nix experience is limited. CentOS, RH on webservers, and a very limited exposure to Raspbian, Mint and now Angstrom.
What I’ve found is that even though they are all linux, they all have completely different ways of installing software.
Raspbian with apt-get and raspi-config, seems to be the most comprehensive. With some Googling there are a lot of answers.
Mint/Ubuntu sure makes it easy to install, and is beautiful to boot.
Now, I’m tackling Angstrom and was adding packages for openCV and it is a different world. Google finds people with the same problem and no answers. Figuring out paths for install options is hard. It’s all much harder.
So, I don’t primarily need a desktop, I want to use the GPIO on the BBB and run openCV and opensphinx (which I haven’t tried to install yet).
What real advantage does Angstrom have over something else? Like Lubuntu or Ubuntu? It seems that the BBB has a fair amount of horsepower and memory.
So, when will I see the advantages of Angstrom?
