Is Linux Mint a Better Choice than Ubuntu? - Datamation - http://www.datamation.com/open-so...
"I've used Linux Mint GNOME edition off and on for a few years now. I have mostly used it in testing, as I'm really not the target audience for this distribution. Yet I continue to be impressed with how simple and user-friendly this desktop is. In addition, there are other factors that I think give Linux Mint a huge edge over Ubuntu for the casual user." - ovigia from Bookmarklet

"Debian GNU/Linux is a Free software replacement for operating systems like Windows and MacOS and their applications. You don't have to be a Debian newbie, or newcomer, to get help from this site, but the documentation here aims to provide help at a level that Debian newbies will find useful. The documents usually address topics that Debian newbies often need help with. Everyone who uses Debian GNU/Linux was a newbie once, even if they were not a beginner. Being a Debian user also means being part of the Debian and GNU/linux communities. If the community gives you help, giving help to others is a way of giving something back to the community. One way of helping others is to document your experience of successfully solving a problem. Debian NewbieDOC helps to make this easy because the website is is a wiki. Anyone can edit pages and create new ones." - ovigia from Bookmarklet

#flosstools #cli #lowspecbox: Introduction to tmux: A GNU Screen Alternative — ServerWatch.com - http://www.serverwatch.com/tutoria...
"GNU Screen is one of the most useful utilities for any admin, but what if Screen isn't your cup of tea? For the longest time, GNU Screen was the only game in town -- but the up-and-coming tmux is worth checking out. What's tmux? Like Screen, it's a "terminal multiplexer," which is a fancy way of saying you can run multiple sessions in the same terminal (and then some). Like Screen, tmux does much more than just let you manage "windows" (or, you know, screens if you prefer) running pseudo terminals." - ovigia from Bookmarklet

#tips: Detach Processes With Disown and Nohup — ServerWatch.com - http://www.serverwatch.com/tutoria...
"Many system administrators make a practice of using GNU Screen or tmux to manage jobs running in the terminal. If you have a long-running job that you want to "detach" from the terminal, you can simply use your terminal multiplexer to do it. But what if you don't use tmux or Screen, or you just forgot? For those times, there's nohup and disown." - ovigia from Bookmarklet

"Looking to slim down a system? The dpigs package tells you which installed packages consume the most space. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you how much space is consumed. However, it does give you an idea of which packages are hogging the most space. By default, it will report the top 10 packages, but you can see more with the -n X option, where X is the number you want to see. For example, to see the 25 top space-hogging packages, use dpigs -n 25." - ovigia

UCubed: Running an #Ubuntu / #Debian unconference - The H Open Source: News and Features

"Les Pounder: The idea was to bring together different communities, initially we focused on the Ubuntu and Debian communities, and when I say Debian, I also include the derivatives. Ubuntu is doing a lot of good work to increase the userbase of Linux, but doesn't contribute as much as it should upstream to Debian. Whereas Debian, and its derivatives, are constantly improving and pushing... more... - ovigia

"When you’re choosing a database, you’re making a long-term decision, because changing your mind later is difficult and expensive. You want to get it right the first time. Two popular open source databases, MySQL and PostgreSQL, are often the final two candidates when admins are preparing a new rollout. This high-level overview of these two open source powerhouses should help you choose which is more appropriate for your needs." - ovigia from Bookmarklet
"In Conclusion Despite their different histories, engines, and tools, no clear differentiator distinguishes either PostgreSQL or MySQL for all uses. Many organizations favor PostgreSQL because it is so reliable and so good at protecting data, and because, as a community project, it is immune to vendor follies. MySQL is more flexible and has more options for being tailored for different... more... - ovigia

"Linux Mint Debian is snappy, fast, elegant and its rolling aspect makes it a brilliant operating system to those experienced enough with APT to work around occasional breakages and regressions. It’s also rough around the edges and requires the user to know what he/she’s doing. No wonder LMDE users like LMDE so much, but it’s not surprising either to see a vast majority of Mint users stay on top of the Ubuntu base. Linux Mint Debian is great, but it’s not for everybody. Today, we’re making it simpler and easier to use." - ovigia from Bookmarklet
