Reddit: I'm using Fedora with Cinnamon DE. What would be the differences if I switched to Linux Mint?
Fedora's default desktop environment is GNOME 3, but I'm right now using Cinnamon, which is the Mint's default.
For me, a developer wanting a Linux distro as a day-a-day used desktop and not really a server, would there be any significant change to the system's usability, performance, etc apart from some different small things like Fedora using DNF and Mint using APT?submitted by /u/BloodShura
Hello Reddit! I apologize if this is in the wrong subreddit, I'm still getting used to Reddit. I'm new to Linux, and programming, but I really want to try and make some basic stuff for Linux. I know how to code, but I don't know what is out there for Linux. What are the most commonly used programming languages for Linux and what is used to create GUI for the applications? Sorry if this is a stupid question or I used the wrong terminology. As I said, I'm pretty new, although I have an idea of what I'm doing once I get started.submitted by /u/Vilcas

Robotical’s hackable, Cortex-M4 based “Marty” educational robot has flexible legs, and can be upgraded with an onboard Raspberry Pi.
A startup called Robotical is seeking funds on Indiegogo for a 3D printable, mostly open source, walking robot called Marty. The WiFi-controlled bipedal bot has a 180MHz Cortex-M4 MCU, and is primarily designed to teach kids about programming using Scratch. It can also be programmed with Python or C++, and you can upgrade it with a Linux-driven Raspberry Pi or other small SBC.
I posted a question that didn't belong in this sub. Instead of deleting it right away, the post was left up for a few hours and some kind users gave me multiple working solutions to my question. Then the mods deleted it.
Thank you for being lenient and not super aggressive!submitted by /u/erik_87mt
HowToForge: PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites.
A first update for the recent RcppGetconf package for reading system configuration --- not unlike getconf from the libc library --- is now out. Almost immediately after I tweeted / blogged asking for help with OS X builds, fellow Rcpp hacker Qiang Kou created a clever pull request allowing for exactly that. So now we cover two POSIX systems that matter most these days --- Linux and OS X --- but as there are more out there, please do try, test and send those pull requests.
3 graphical tools for Git
In this article, we'll take a look at some convenience add-ons to help you integrate Git comfortably into your everyday workflow.
I learned Git before many of these fancy interfaces existed, and my workflow is frequently text-based anyway, so most of the inbuilt conveniences of Git suit me pretty well. It is always best, in my opinion, to understand how Git works natively. However, it is always nice to have options, so these are some of the ways you can start using Git outside of the terminal.
Are Open Source Applications Your Best Option?
That's because one of the major attractions of open source software is that you're not stuck with the features it comes with. Instead of paying a corporation a license fee for the product it chooses to offer you, you can pay a developer to take the open source code and add exactly the features you need so the result meets your requirements exactly.
That's the theory anyway, but it's important to remember that software choice is not always about features and there are certain applications for which open source software may be the wrong choice.

- Ninth : Implementation of my API on the daemon
Tenth : SmartInfo is alive!
This week, I worked on the gnome client. I wanted to link my right click menu with the call view. That’s was difficult because the right click menu is called by a signal. So, I didn’t have access to the instance of the menu to send my own signal. I tried a lot of things to implement my signal, but it’s just impossible. Then I discovered the GAction. With this technique, I just needed to change the state of my action and connect it with my method in my view and it’s done!

- Wireless Workshop Accepted into 2016 Linux Kernel Summit and Linux Plumbers Conference
Wireless Workshop accepted into the 2016 Linux Kernel Summit and Linux Plumbers Conference
It might well be that wireless networking recently made the transition from an ubiquitous networking technology to the dominant networking technology, at least from the viewpoint of end-user devices. Part of this trend is the use of wireless in automobiles, and this workshop will look at Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE), also know as IEEE 802.11p. In addition, the bufferbloat problem is starting to focus on the more difficult wireless environment, and to that end, this workshop will discuss FQ/Codel integration, testing, and development. As usual, the workshop will encompass the full 802.11 stack, not just the kernel portions, and therefore wpa_supplicant will also be on the agenda.
