I might be running for President

It has been a while, since I blogged. I didn't have time, with 6 kids and way too many summer plans. I installed Kubuntu after a hard drive crash, replacing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Wow, felt like going back to the Microsoft Environment (Yuck!).

Kubuntu made me wonder how long -- until the planet encompasses Linux, looking back at an era of hampered computing due Billy's brain fart (MS). I have been spreading Linux in my neighborhood, better and faster than any flu-virus. People love it,...

Since my last blog entry I have improved my Linux OS skills dramatically. I am happy to say: I am comfortable with Linux now.

My Programming efforts:
I discovered a serious lack of support and documentation for ORB (any ORB), and its implementation in a GUI Linux/Windows/Mac environment. On console applications them ORBS thrive well, but writing a X-Window Application with a toolkit (e.g. QT4) is a true disaster - them ORBs turn into ORCs!

Since my last blog entry - in which I mentioned that I would start learning about Distributed Technologies, I have been going through many AHA! moments that Sigmund Freud so nicely described. In my quest for getting savvy on Distributed Object Programming I found that CORBA is the only way to go. It is well known as a complex mess of incomprehensible matter in many communities. I shared that vision since last week, now I think it is quite doable.

The secret to learning CORBA is to...

Updated 11-14-2011 at 10:35 AM by m3rl1n (Found some interesting answers.)

In my last blog I mentioned being proud of having closed that platinum plated Microsoft door (maintenance and updates became too much of an investment - with no impressive return), and I promissed myself to regulary update this blog - oops!

I have been cramming C++, MySQL, and recently I developed my first X-Window application using QT4. Now that I got a fair idea about the basics, it is time to jump into deep waters, and start programming like I used to in VB. I think that is the...

No, I don't miss you!

I wondered if I would be falling back to Windows and MS Apps anytime soon? So far I haven't felt homesick for a single moment, since I switched. I guess that counts for something on the Linux side.

I read about compatibility problems that gamers experience when running Linux. I am not a gamer so I can't comment on those subjects. My kids like gaming way more than I do, hence my wife plays more games than I do, be it limited to Solitaire and Sudoko. I haven't heard any complaints...
