One of my favorite distros for the time I started to use Linux.
My very first (usable) bistro was Corel Linux but when I got Caldera Linux in one of those PC-Magazine CDs I really love it. Unfortunately it was a demo CD so after a while I have to format the PC and reinstall to continue using it.
At that time I was neither a fan of KDE or Gnome (which was in its very early stages). KDE was more developed though, and that’s why most distros have it as the default desktop environment.
It was until I’ve got a Mandrake 7.2 (I think it came in Todo Linux Magazine) that I started to use GNOME, I think it was around 2000.

Short story… Microsoft have this NEED to support Linux because of the “cloud” infrastructure it have. A big chunk of azure instances run Linux instead of Windows and they are porting Linux/Unix tools to Windows (eg. Bash for Windows, etc.) to keep Windows relevant in this field.
So, Microsoft Developers are having a pain in the ass doing this ports because Windows doesn’t support AF_UNIX sockets, BSD and Linux have long time supporting them; and even when Microsoft have something kind of similar called “pipes” there are differences that make really hard to do such ports.

Give it a try, for $1 dollar you get 5 books, for $8 dollars you get 7 books more, and for $15 dollars you get 16 books in PDF, mobi or ebook. They can also email them to your kindle ;-). Did I mentioned they are DRM free? ?
Get a bundle of Unix ebooks and support charity!

Excellent way to use telegram if you want to avoid all ha the interrupts of leaving the shel or maybe just don’t have a graphical interface at all.
All weekend I’ve been itching to write about telegram-cli, a command-line interface to—faux gasp of surprise—the Telegram messaging service. Naturally, bec

Y si los hay, conozco a varios que se instalan (pa empezar) ubuntu desktop como servidor porque quieren tener modo gráfico.
Si lo primero que se debe aprender es a usar la terminal y un buen editor de texto (Pico/Nano no cuentan pero igual se aprenden)

What can I say?, Microsoft finally accepted that they needed it to be “serious” about servers. I personally hope I won’t ever have to deal with using a server running Windows, not even if it runs bash, although if it is done fine the common “usage” for the user will be fine. I think the problems will come with the underlying platform, I mean Windows by itself, the kernel, the system calls, and the way it handle processes etc..
The surprise… Canonical, the fucking SOLD to Microsoft. My conspiranoic side already had these ideas that Ubuntu and its “convergence” stuff were nothing but the playground to what now is Microsoft Windows 10 Continuum, the scopes, and everything else might be that thing too.
I know exactly who the hell is taking all the bandwidth!!
And yes, my internet bandwidth sucks…

So, I have a bunch of ogg files that I moved to mp3 (I don’t want to start a format/encoder war, I just did it), I wanted to move the old ogg files, I didn’t delete them because probably I need them in the future. To move the files apart the easiest way could be using find and xargs:
This are the real geniuses, we are just dumps standing on their shoulders.
