I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment I have 16GB RAM. Do I need 32GB swap?
@UriHerrera - not arguing it should need it. But the fact remains that some does.

@UriHerrera - some apps takeover what are normally OS tasks, and force themselves out to swap and back in again

@UriHerrera - the JVM is not the only applciation which needs a swap space to run, VirtualBox, and many others do, too. In short, though, why would you not put a swap space on a system when it's so cheap to do?

@UriHerrera - many applications rely on it (the JVM being one)

@UriHerrera - swap is most certainly needed regardless of how much RAM you have

if I had not already installed the new OS, yes - but without chroot, I don't think this would work

the service command won't work - that will show me what is running now ... not what was running :)

comment How can I determine what services I had running before a new install?
the question shown as a duplicate (How do you get a list of all starting services?) is interesting - but not at all a duplicate. That question does not deal with how to find what were the services running before a new install (as this question clearly indicates). That question is about what services are running.

comment How to hide terminal output when executing a command?
you can also do just: eclipse &> /dev/null. That catches both stdin and stderr to the redirect point (in bash)
