In general, Linux is not an operating system that collects old junk, which would require periodical reinstallation of the OS or, using a cleaning tool like CCleaner for Windows. Most of this can be attributed to the package management system.
However, a small exception still remains. The users' home directories get cluttered with old configuration files of programs. You can easily review your own current situation for example with the command ls -1a ~/.
A lot of this stuff gets placed on various locations, while to me it seems that the sane location would be ~/.config/ and its subdirectories. Has this directory actually been standardized somewhere?
Can we start a campaign to tidy up every application and modify them to use a centralized location? This would finally put an end to the last island of Linux garbage.
Some kind of user-specific meta package management system for managing application configuration data could also be interesting. You could just tick checkboxes for the applications of which configuration data you would like to remove, and then click a trashcan button. This tool could also pop up automatically if an app was uninstalled, and it would ask if I want to delete the configuration for that app.
Other ideas are welcome as well.submitted by /u/jones_supa

Ingenic, a semiconductor company that is based in Beijing, China, design their own CPU core and System on Chips (SoC) based on the MIPS32 architecture. You can find their products in many end consumer products such as digital picture frames, portable media players, and GPS devices.
They have recently ported Tizen 2.3 to the Newton2 platform, which is ideally suited to the fast paced wearable and IoT market, and they also have a Tizen 3.0 demo image running on MIPS CI20 Creator board. We recently got to catch with Petar Jovanovic from RT-RK, which is a consultancy company that specialises in system software and compilers/tools, about their porting experience with Tizen:
