New to Linux: Dual-boot work and casual OS?

Reddit - Wed, 2016-09-28 17:36

So after having to do my second hard reset of my laptop due to windows 10 crashing in the past 4 months, I'm considering moving to a linux based OS. After exploring some of the options, I've found some nice options, as well as a few ideas.

I stumbled across Ubuntu Mate, a light OS that seems great, especially as my research relies primarily on MATLAB. I am excited by the thought that this could help improve computation time on my analyses. This OS also seems great just for casual use, but lacks the functionality of other OSs.

I have also found Arch Linux, which appears to be completely customizable and would be particularly nice as a primary OS, because of the added functionality. However, this would use more resources than Ubuntu Mate.

So what I am thinking is that I could dual boot these two OS and use Ubuntu Mate as a work OS, where I keep all of my data, work files, and MATLAB, and I could use Arch Linux as a primary OS for all other uses.

Being new to all of this, my question is does this seem realistic? Would there be any big issues with this that I may not be thinking about? Would the performance difference be worth it to do this?

I will likely start with Arch Linux, once my computer resets, and test out MATLAB and see the performance. Then compare it to Ubuntu Mate, to see for myself. Regardless, I thought it would be fooled to get input from more experienced uses.

Linux and Open Source Hardware for IoT

Most of the new 21 open source software projects for IoT that we examined last week listed Linux hacker boards as their prime development platforms. This week, we’ll look at open source and developer-friendly Linux hardware for building Internet of Things devices, from simple microcontroller-based technology to Linux-based boards.

What ticket system do you use and why? I am looking for something under a free license, easy to maintain/upgrade and with possible commercial support.

Reddit - Wed, 2016-09-28 15:16

I am looking for a support ticket system mainly to help track tasks but also take internal requests at a small office (around 30 people) and produce basic reports (time to close, average response, volume, etc.). I'd like the same system to integrate a wiki to link tickets and documentation.

I'd setup a dedicated VM for this, so I hope to find a project under a free license already packaged or available for Debian systems, which I would then host locally.

I've used and setup RT, RedMine and Trac in the past, Trac seems to fill all requirements (including relatively up to date packages in Debian), but I was wondering if there are any other newer projects I may not have heard of and how they're being used. If you use and have setup any such project, I'd love to hear about it.
