No one is born knowing C++. No one is known knowing Python. No one is born knowing POSIX API's. Everyone had to learn it, and everyone learns in their own way. And it is healthy to ask others best practises and what to do. The Bank of Learning won't become insolvent from sharing knowledge.

Tomorrow is #LinuxThursday on the #LundukeShow! (Holy Double Hashtag, Batman!)

Got topics? Got questions? Are they Linux/FOSS/Open Source related?

Use the #LinuxThursday hashtag to make sure we see 'em! (Doing it a little different this week.)

> Crucially, these updates to both Linux and Windows will incur a performance hit on Intel products. The effects are still being benchmarked, however we're looking at a ballpark figure of five to 30 per cent slow down.

> A spokesperson for Intel was not available for comment

Weren't they now.
