comment Font in IntelliJ IDEA on Ubuntu 14.04
Note that Intellij uses the default java which typically is openjdk (which for some reason has inferior font rendering), unless you set the JAVA_HOME line in bin/idea.sh

Azul has started providing OpenJDK builds under the name "Zulu" which can be downloaded, unpacked and used automatically. (They earn their money from support). azulsystems.com/products/zulu/downloads

comment XRDP gives checkerboard screen

comment How do I install Java?
Under 15.04 the icedtea-7-plugin does not work well with Firefox. I've found that downloading a tar.gz distribution and manually symlinking libnpjp2.so into /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins made it work. Note that the websites need to be marked as trusted too in the java control panel (this in turn is only possible if you do not have spaces in the full folder name of the unpacked jre).

Snappy Ubuntu is an incompatible sibling to the traditional Debian-based Ubuntu.

comment What is Snappy Ubuntu Core?
It appears to me that Canonical is creating a whole new strand of Linux distributions, as it does not use either the Redhat nor the Debian infrastructure, and that using the Ubuntu name for it should help developer acceptance.
