From the very beginning, I’d like to say that I’m an avid Windows user. RMS thinks that we shouldn’t give away freedom in exchange for convenience. Truthfully, I had to fuck a lot with my Ubuntu installation to work properly, to stop hanging on boot, shut down in less than a minute, use two GPUs correctly, stop eating my battery worse than a Hulk and … I think, usual people deserve this convenience NOT TO DO IT EVERY TIME THEY BUY A PC!
But still, I was feeling pretty miserably to fail short with my Linux experience while I was reading Linux System Programming, 2nd Edition by Robert Love and decided to fix it. Anyway, I can’t recall how many times I reinstalled Linux and decided to start from scratch so finally I decided to write all the breathtaking steps from my long journey here.
As I decided to take the hard path, I also set out to change few more usual parts involved in the process:
- blog engine
- fight plan
In regard to blog engine, this is exactly the post devoted to it. I decided to use jekyll because of the following benefits:
- I’ll have no manual helpers, so I’ll finally learn how to type fast.
- It’s written in Ruby and I always dreamed about learning it.
- I can impove my text editor usage skills.
So I decided to dump beloved Wordpress.
What I’ll be writing about
- New programming languages and related experiences;
- VIM / Emacs tips;
- Linux usage, administration and daily routine;
- Thoughts on computing in general, but I’ll keep’em as short as possible;
- Debian/Ubuntu packages, sources and PPAs;
This list can expand but I already think it’s a lot.
