Linux has changed the way I work and use a computer, both PCs and laptops.
Being OpenSource, it is linked to the maker world, hacking, modification, DIY. If you've never tried it, you have to give it a try.
In this section I will talk and collect information regarding GNU Linux and its different distributions, as we are testing them.
Do you know what Linux is? Do you think it is not for you? How can it help you? What will it allow you to do? Is there information on Linux?
But isn't this for computer geeks? To this I answer you. No. Anyone can install distributions like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, etc. With step-by-step guided visual interfaces. Extremely simple. No need to use the console or a line of code, all at the click of a mouse.
I continue with the PC and gadget repairs although this cannot in itself be considered a repair. But it is something that every time they ask me more. Put some operating system that makes them work on computers with older or older hardware.
And although I tell you a little about the decisions I have made in this specific case, it can be extended much more. I will try to update and leave what I have done each time the case is presented.
In this article I leave a Anaconda installation guide and how to use your Conda package manager. With this we can create development environments for python and R with the libraries we want. Very interesting to start messing with Machine Learning, data analysis and programming with Python.
Anaconda is a free and Open Source distribution of the Python and R programming languages widely used in scientific computing (Data ScienceData Science, Machine Learning, Science, Engineering, predictive analytics, Big Data, etc).
It installs a large number of applications widely used in these disciplines all at once, instead of having to install them one by one. . More than 1400 and that are the most used in these disciplines. Some examples
Lately many people in my environment ask me about LinuxThey even want you to install it to test it. So now that I've been using Linux for everything for 6 months, I think it's a good time to share my experience.
Use Ubuntu for 6 years on the laptop but not intensive way or to work, the laptop is for leisure, browsing and some Arduino stuff. For a long time I tried to install some distribution on my PC, but my old GForce 240T graphics gave problems and although they tried to help me to correct the problems and install the correct drivers, in the end I got tired and continued with Windows 7 and then 10. I tried Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and some more and I could not install any. The truth is that I no longer remember if I tried something that was not based on Debian.
But a few months ago I had a Manjaro distro ready on the USB and I thought why not? and see where it worked and also great. I love Manjaro. I have been using this distribution for about a month and I fell in love with its Theme Maia. But there was an update that gave problems again with all the Nvidia (Rolling Release stuff?) So I tried Kubuntu, which had never been able to install it and had no problem. And so I've been using Kubuntu for more than 6 months in my day to day.
