Reddit: First Linux Install!

Monday 2nd of February 2015 06:46:30 AM

I just installed Linux for the first time on my own machine.

It's been a while since I used it. Traditionally I am a Mac guy, as I do a lot of audio editing/recording and it seems to get along with Pro Tools much better than Windows. I had an extra laptop that I bought last year for my wife lying around that she never used as she ended up using an old mac laptop I had, so I decided to give Linux a go since I hate windows 8 so much.

It is outstanding so far, I already like it more than Mac for an "every day use" machine. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. Also, the computer runs quite a bit faster now than before, another huge plus. Been lurking long enough here that I'm finally glad to join the party.

LXer: Learn the Art of Computer Programming With These Great Free Beginner Books

Sunday 1st of February 2015 09:24:07 PM
Learning to code still remains a buzz. The problem facing any budding new programmer is how to start. Questions abound. What's the best programming language for a beginner? What's the best way to learn? In my opinion, it is best to first get interested in programming, then seek out some experienced coders and discuss and discuss, and learn programming by doing, practising with lots of practical examples and the aid of an excellent introductory book.

Reddit: re:Linux support for popular professional programs

Sunday 1st of February 2015 08:26:28 PM

I find anytime this is brought up somewhere outside of linux centric subreddits one main tired argument is brought up in one version or another.

There is no money in linux. By which they are saying either linux users don't spend money, or the linux development community in general doesn't make money.

Which as we all know is a bad argument for a great many reasons. However this is still one of the largest issues keeping many companies from supporting linux because thats how they look at the issue as well. The same sentiments have been said by representatives from many software companies.

So I ask, is there a way the linux community can curb that point of view?
