From time to time I was facing strange behaviour of my Ubuntu Gnome desktop. After some action (e.g. drag’n dropping object on desktop while cleaning up mess) all my icons and desktop objects disappeared only background image left. It was not so frequent, but it was definitely not a good experience . Finally I found a simple solution to work around it.
Just restart nautilus and my desktop was restored.
Thats it.Gnome Issue Linux Ubuntu
Yep, I upgraded my workstation to Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Linux. Upgrade process was as usually smooth without any troubles. I again put myself into risk by upgrading over remote connection using VNC. But no problem at all. Just better performance and more polished desktop. Ubuntu just rocks. Thank you guys!Desktop Linux Ubuntu Upgrade
I found a very nice quote from Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie, fathers of UNIX, that I really like:
A powerful operating system for interactive use need not be expensive either in equipment or in human effort. We hope that users of Unix will find that the most important characteristics of the system are its simplicity, elegance, and ease of use.
There is no need to say anything more to that… That is why I prefer Linux and other UNIX based systems.

While working with PHPMyAdmin I saw following message on my screen.
#1030 - Got error 28 from storage engine?
Well, I was afraid what is wrong, but it is very simple. You are out of space! So hurry and clean up your disks before something fail (and setup an notifications or SMTP agent on it ).Error Linux PHPMyAdmin
While I am thinking about myself as OS agnostic person, I do have some preferences or opinions about what is an ideal OS form me. I switched my personal computer to Linux a few years ago, but my workstation OS was usually chosen by my employer IT department. To be honest I did not try Vista, I was happy with XP and this was true even after a lot of my colleagues moved to Vista (and back to XP again). For software developer there are more essential things than Aero or new security model. Developer needs to write code, compile and debug. I have to say that best development experience on Microsoft platform was with combination of Visual Studio 2008 and Windows XP.Desktop Linux Microsoft Performance Usability
Well I am a big fan of Linux for many years. I used or experimented with a lot of distributions but my love are Gentoo, Debian and Ubuntu. I am not a professional system administrator, but I am using Linux for both my workstations and for server as well. For last few years I was using Gentoo as my OS for home desktop. It was great time, I learned a lot about Linux generally, but it was also painful from time to time. I spend a lot of time fixing my workstation after some fresh portage updates. I was resolving issues, masked, blocked packages… I was merging configurations, but not any more. I decided to save my time for some more creative work than fixing OS configuration twice a month. So I am back to Ubuntu and I love it.Desktop Linux
