I have an two apps on the App Store. They're called Musicthat and Tealday. Check them out!

I've written these libraries:

  • NSTerminal: A little library to ease writting command line apps in Obj-C
  • libcondset: A C++ library that let's you pragmatically manipulate and serialize predicates.

I like to work with:

  • Ruby (off Rails)
  • Objective-C (Cocoa Touch, Cocoa)
  • Python (Google App Engine, Flask)
  • Common Lisp

And I'm familiar with C, a little C++, and some jQuery.

I'm a Linux user (as you can probably tell).

If you have fast enough internet, some disks, and some time, you should just download the ISO and save money.

comment Cinnamon on Ubuntu high cpu usage
On a 4 core system it is less of an issue, but on a one core AMD it was a deal breaker. XFCE was a lot nicer about resource usage.

What machine is it? If Secure Boot (shudder) is enabled, you need to disable it before the computer will boot Linux.

comment Cinnamon on Ubuntu high cpu usage
Had the same experience. On a one core laptop. Not fun, but I couldn't find any solution. I ended up switching to XFCE.

comment What exactly is a chroot? Is it similar to a simultaneous dual boot?
@mathematician1975: You could. Not sure how well that would work though. What the chroot can offer you us something like that, where you have a new development environment for the device. Because the device's code is (most likely) not written for your architecture, you'd want to just get an environment where you trick your compiler, etc. that they are on your embedded machine, so they'll build for it. Take a look at this: help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot

comment Installing g++ on 8.04
Dang. That is one annoying setup. I think you should just try @user4124 suggests, and if that doesn't work, build a new version of GCC using your current version.

It says that it contains an x86 processor. You could shoot into the dark, and hope it works. That's done wonders for me.

What's the processor? Linux supports almost everything. PowerPC: ✓. ARM: ✓. x86: ✓. x86-64: ✓. AMD64: ✓.

Hm. If you'll comment after you try. Why can't you upgrade? Ubuntu isen't like Windows. Old versions die fast, rather than being supported for 10 years. You need to upgrade to the newest LTS version, 12.04.
