15 Healthy Snacks for Linux Gurus

Filed under
Misc

I am not a nutritionist or health expert, but I can tell that majority of those who have computer related jobs are overweight. Programmers, web developers, and probloggers normally spend 8-12 hours per day sitting in front of the computer screen without moving a muscle, and are typically eating unhealthy snacks like fudge bars.

Linux/Unix gurus could be worse. They are those who usually spend much more time with their computers and devour much more fudge bars. Just take a look at some photos of Richard M. Stallman, John "Maddog" Hall, and even Linus Torvalds himself, and you will know what I mean.

Since I'm one of those who believe in the saying that "health is wealth", I decided to share to you this list of healthy snacks which I got from "Diet Blog". I hope this will not only benefit those who are overweight but also those who are not yet overweight Smile

Here's the essential list of healthy snacks already:

Aw. My eyes...

re: NSFW

lolol That's an old one. It was used to gross us out years ago, but just when it's faded safely out of memory, somebody comes along to burn it back. Big Grin

Yeah, I was being kind of sarcastic. Smile

PC-MOS/386 is the latest obsolete operating system to open source on Github

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more

GIMP, More Awesome Than I Remember

For what seems like decades, GIMP (Graphic Image Manipulation Program) has been the de facto standard image editor for Linux. It works well, has many features, and it even supports scripting. I always have found it a bit clumsy, however, and I preferred using something else for day-to-day work. I recently had the pleasure of sitting at a computer without an image editor though, so I figured I'd give GIMP another try on a non-Linux operating system. See, the last time I tried to use GIMP on OS X, it required non-standard libraries and home-brew adding. Now, if you head over to the GIMP site, you can download a fully native version of GIMP for Windows, OS X and Linux. Read more

Linux 4.14-rc6

So rc6 is delayed, not because of any development problems, but simply because the internet was horribly bad my usual Sunday afternoon time, and I decided not to even try to fight it. And by delaying things, I got a couple more ull requests in from Greg. Yay, I guess? rc6 is a bit larger than I was hoping for, and I'm not sure whether that is a sign that we _will_ need an rc8 after all this release (which wouldn't be horribly surprising), or whether it's simply due to timing. I'm going to leave that open for now, so just know that rc8 _may_ happen. Read more Also: Linux 4.14-rc6 Released: Linux 4.14 Kernel Final In 2~3 Weeks
