Reddit: Dumping Ubuntu for Fedora and Nvidia Optimus.. Easier ways to transfer all data, games and apps ?
With no support from Canonical and Ubuntu developers towards Nvidia Optimus users I have decided to move onto Fedora 25 on my laptop. I would love to start saving some battery. One of the major issues I'm facing is how do I transfer a lot of my data installed apps and games to Fedora. Apps like Unity3d editor and Projects, Gnome Builder Projects, My full Play on Linux install which has Office, and some games and specially Steam games, KDE neon install and closed source Broadcom drivers for my WiFi.
Are there any tools that I can use to make backing up my data and installing on a different distribution easier or can I use my current Ubuntu home partition as Fedoras home partition?submitted by /u/S1AY3RZ

'F*cking crap' aside, Linus Torvalds says Linux 4.9 is coming along nicely
Linux 4.9 is coming along nicely, with Linus Torvalds emitting the fourth release candidate on Saturday evening.
But before he got there, he offered a minor kernel mailing list explosion when developer Miklos Szeredi proposed “the concept of feature flags to allow backward incompatible changes to the overlay format” in overlayfs. Szeredi opined that the feature was long overdue.
Torvalds disagreed that the feature was needed, never mind overdue. Another poster to the Linux Kernel Mailing List, Amir Goldstein, asked for clarification of Linus' thinking.
GXml: Objects and Collections to XML and back
If your GObject class implements GomProperty interface, and is a property in your object, it will be translated to an Element attributes with a name and a text value.
For simple types, this means you can control if an attribute is written or not, depending if it is not null. Standard properties, not GObject classes implementing GomProperty, they will be always written with its default value. This is, for example, a boolean will always use false by default.

Introducting GPS Ami
Once upon a time, I started geotagging my photos. For that I bought a GPS logger, an Holux M-1200E. The device works great with gpsbabel, and since my photography workflow was stuck on MacOS, I used Houdah GPS (which uses gpsbabel behind the scene, BTW). Also I have been working for too long on moving that workflow to Linux and GNOME. At one point I even started to write an app I called "Magellan" to do what that MacOS tool did, as a part of my other project, Niepce. I didn't really get motivated so it went nowhere. It was written in C++ like the rest of Niepce. The technology isn't the problem here.
