  1. GNU/Hurd is what I had intended - I just shorted it to GNU for simplicity's sake. Thanks for elaborating further for me.
  2. No problem, also 3d acceleration being enabled - does not mean you will have an accelerated experience. It will tell said virtualized machine and OS that hardware accleration is available, to satisfy dependency checks and make certain installers and executables happy, but that doesn't mean to expect 60fps+ on a GTX 1080 TI playing CS:GO on a virtual machine even though counter strike opened to the in game menu screen just fine without complaining. Apply same concept to web browsing. Scrolling pages and watching youtube will still stutter and lag. Bandwidth bottleneck somewhere between the band
  3. I've been around the block a lot when it comes to OS's - it's practically an obsession -- certain situations work well with VM environments depending on what your goal and task are. Daily driving a VM as a browser will probably suck, but using it for a specific task like terminal usage or quick cross compiling or something - a vm should work just fine. Even for development if it's all free hand coding. I don't know if I'd recompile a kernel unless you have enough spare threads, and cores to spare with hardware passthrough enabled and have VT-x and VT-d. Basically depends on the situation, need
  4. Exactly my point - only useful on smaller profile lower end hardware...Maybe a VM but I don't advise or recomend it beyond initial checking it out to see if it would work on the said low powered small profile machine.
  5. The correct answer is all of them and none of them, as Linux is not a distribution at all, it's just a kernel, and nothing more. There is a lot of distro's however missing off that list non the less . Including major hitters like Mint, Red Hat, Cent OS, Arch, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, etc. Just to list a few. Even the original distro of GNU is missing. Then there's the fact that Linux is actually just a clone of Minix. At least you somewhat simplified the choosing process by filtering out the BSD and other Posix options including QNX, AmigaOS and BeOS. Cheers!
