Hello everyone, I work as a support representative for Linux users at an academic institute.
I wonder if you guys have any tips for me to ease my work, give better support to users, and maybe learn something new as well.
It could be scripts, tools, customized distro and so on..
Things I did at my workplace:
A pxe server with live CDs
dokuwiki for Linux users

Reddit: Is fedora or opensuse welcoming to new users who want to use it daily for non-coding purposes?
I basically want to use linux the same way I use windows, for entertainment. Watch videos, twitch streams, movies. Play some games that work fine on linux and ye that's pretty much it, I'll keep W10 for microsoft office and adobe stuff.
I want a visually appealing one as well, that's why fedora on GNOME seems like the best choice, but I'm not sure if its easy to use. I have seen linux mint as well but its kinda windows look-a-like.

I’m thrilled to be part of the first project to bring KDE’s flagship desktop software to our users direct from the KDE community. We had to fill in a few gaps in what Plasma offers its users to complete the experience but we did that by working in Plasma rather than doing our work separately. So we added bootup themes for Grub and Plymouth and we’ve worked to make sure the app store, Discover, covers the whole archive. But the most important feature is what Neon is intended to be, a Plasma 5.6 desktop as the developers intended it.

Reddit: Is mongodb database ACID compliant enough for Inventory/CRM/Accounting systems of small businesses?
I'm a programmer but know very less about the DBA level intricacies of databases. I want to understand the trade-off that one makes to achieve a better performance of mongodb against the robustness of traditional sql databases like mysql/postgresql?
If I were to implement an Accounting/CRM/Inventory system (or even an eCommerce system), how will this ACID compliance of MongoDB affect the correctness of data in each case.
I want to understand that if mongodb was lacking in ACID compliance in any way, why is it so popular choice today among lots of developers?submitted by /u/rms_returns
