>>581823153 on xubuntu right now. Two servers in the basement ( Ubuntu 9.04 and 12.04 ). I have 5 raspberry pis ( Debian ) and and ODROID U3 running xubuntu. Use Fedora and Centos at work. Your post is invalid
>>581823153 I run Linux on several servers, but on the desktop it still feels clunky compared to win and mac. I run windows on my gaming machine, and osx on my work machine. The year of linux on the desktop has not yet arrived.
>>581825209 The raid card on the one is ancient it is just a file server, there is no driver beyond 9.04 for it.
One raspberry pi runs the tv for the kids in the car, two are dedicated to my home brewing. One is in the master bedroom as the media player, and the last one is used for playing around with arduinos. The ODROID is the media player in the main tv room
Linux will never be acceptable on the desktop because it takes a corporation to get the people together and make it good. Open source works well for a lot of software but not something that required good ui, actual art, someone with a unifying vision and ability to not change everything all the time.
In other words Mac has the best desktop followed by windows followed by nothing.
>>581823153 I like windows, I've always used it (obviously as its the case for most people) and I know how it works, I can easily fuck around with most of it and if I need something more complex done or fixed I can speak to a regular human being who'll give me a reasonable, coherent answer. Plus I dont really like how the interface looks, a lot of the different versions look like half assed OSX clones and I'm not overly into macs either, nice as they are. Before anyone starts ranting and raving I don't want to learn l33t haxor skills and have to spend hours modifying a metal box to behave how I want it to, I want the computer I spend hard earned money on to play video games, run youtube and let me do the odd bit of word processing, with minimal fucking around
>>581827205 Servers and infrastructure sure but that's where the actual computer/software experts play with it, I can imagine half of amazons staff don't even know what linux is, it's cheaper to use computers and programs that the majority of their staff are likely to know
Languages I know, but don't know well enough to do something considerable in: Assembly R VHDL
Languages I use at work: C and C++ mostly. Python if I have to script something quick and dirty.
>>581827643 Well, du'h, computers are pretty dumb machines, they don't do anything by themselves, you have to write code to make them work. I write most small utilities in bash, and lately I've started using php-cli for shell scripts too, because, it's so easy.. For real programs, I write C, C++ and sometimes if it should be done quickly and easy, Java.
In b4 "How do I learn 2 code?": Start writing code.. No school or nothing is needed for that. But you do need to enjoy it, coding for money but without pleasure must be torture, so don't ever settle on a job where you write boring code.
