Mike and Jon's Bet
Jon had never had a Pot Noodle. Mike was shocked.
Mike had never tried Arch Linux. Jon was shocked.
A bet followed...
Here's Jon eating his first ever Pot Noodle.
'It didn't taste that bad! I chose the curry flavour, thinking the spices would cover over any inherent badness. It wasn't exactly filling, though, and it only had 5 peas in - so it was mostly water and noodles. I won't be making it a regular meal.'
Here's Mike installing Arch Linux:
'Wow. That's what I call a fast distro. I expected to spend a good hour or so fiddling around at the command line - not that I cared, as I've done that a million times before. But Arch's installer got the base system, X and Xfce on my machine in less than 5 minutes, and the boot time is screamingly quick. You have to know what you're doing, as there isn't even XTerm or OpenSSH included in the default install, and I don't have anti-aliased fonts yet. But Jon reassures me that the Arch documentation will explain everything. Ultimately, I can see myself really liking Arch, as I tend to get frustrated with all the extra cruft included in many distros.'
That is all.
