Bringing a Windows mindset to a GNU/Linux world

Filed under
Misc

I just ran across a level of stupid so off the charts I had to immediately comment on it here lest my inaction unwittingly foster an environment tolerant of such stupidity. Allow me to quote from a post on Linuxforums:

When I say cd’d I mean I used the command cd, to change directory. So for example say I downloaded and extracted the drivers to the desktop I would open a Konsole window and type:

sudo cd /home/sebmaster/desktop/[folder extracted to]/

(You probably dont need sudo but I have got into the habit of adding it before pretty much everything)

Those of you are familiar with GNU/Linux should see this heaping mound of stupidity for what it is immediately, and will likely find the following explanation superfluous. For the rest of you, here’s a detailed explanation.

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
