I just installed arch linux over osx and am now happily single booting linux. :)
Software related you can install a customizable window manager, the ones that Sylinn recommended are fantastic options.
Hardware related, I think that the best purchase I have ever made, hands down, is an ssd. It has made things SOOOOOOO much faster, here is what I got (the 240gb version):

It is super easy to install, though they are a little pricey its totally worth it. I have a macbook pro 2010 model, so I also replaced the CD drive with my old hdd with the help of a hard drive caddy like this:

Which was a little harder to install, but not impossible by any means. And its cheap!

If you are so inclined, Samsung just released a line of very affordable ssds up to a terabyte in size for only like 500 bucks (I say only, but for a terabyte ssd thats unheard of). Macs are known for being non-customizable, and apple takes pride in that, but with the help of a very small screwdriver you at least have access to the harddrive, memory, and CD superdrive, which is as good as most other laptops.

thanks you. I did not know lua before i started awesome. So the first time i've most learn with the rices of u/elenapan and the awesomewm api together, it's really hard to done something with only the API man, it lack a lots of exemples.

Else to learn lua, i've read the best book on the subject :) the first 100 pages are great. You can find it for free on some site.

There are many others nice sources too like to : , , ,

Initially I watched an episode of lunduke hour that featured a freeBSD dev

I like the documentation available to help me learn. I got my hands on the FreeBSD handbook and can't wait to get into the design and implementation text book, Addison Wesley, 928 pages.

I appreciate the focus on servers and research computing that is BSD's strong suit.

I see that, I suppose I just read it wrong. I found syntax here, and the best textbook my classes used was Code Complete by Steve McConnell. Good book, though huge and often too in-depth. But really, there are more than enough resources online, no need to buy a book. The benefit of it is that the textbook uses C++ to describe more advanced programming practices. It's a focus on how to program well and professionally, rather than just teaching basic syntax

All the code is up on github here, so feel free to poke around. If you have specific questions about the architecture or design I wouldn't mind answering those, but I don't have the time to walk you through everything line-by-line. If you need that kind of instruction I would refer you to the fantastic tutorials for OpenGL related stuff and a project oriented tutorial-style book like this one for Java for general programming concepts if you're just getting started. I'm not familiar with anything similar for C/C++ but perhaps someone can chime in with suggestions.

A Nixeus MODA v2. By no means a high end mechanical keyboard, but I still love it.

u/Jako21530 · 1 pointr/unixporn

I finally got a 1080p monitor!

Amazon link if you are interested

More importantly, I upgraded my GPU to a 380x from a 280x. Now when my computer is kicking, it doesn't sound like a wheezing whale.

To celebrate the occasion I changed up my BSPWM config for the first time in a couple months.




Wallapaper - I changed the colors to blue and added a vingett so my eyes wouldn't melt as I look at the screen.

I've had good luck with AMD cards. This setup has a fairly ancient 5770 with a pair of dvi and minidisplay ports. I then have to inline an active adapter as my thrid display doesn't have a displayport.

u/frownybrownee · 3 pointsr/unixporn

Nope, I'm running a Sandisk Cruzer Edge 16GB. 5.5GB / partition and 9GB /home. Have 1GB free on / and 6GB on home.

EDIT: Just noticed they're 70% off on Amazon, here you go mate.

Thanks ;). Not so skilled on that and my advice might be misleading; though I got a background in cs:This would be my suggestion for someone beginning.
