My wife is the furthest from computer literate. She still tries though, and gets pissed at me all the time when she boots up any of our computers and can't seem to figure a damn thing out. I've delt with this ever since we've been together: cellphone rings its the wife looking for help.
Tonight, I decided to stay up a bit past my bedtime to put together something for her to make her life a little bit easier. An interactive bash script with clear instructions and 99% automation for everything else that needs configuring (Bluetooth, randr, workspaces, vlc) to get her up and going, doing what she wants to do (and begs me to fix with a simple easy to remember alias.
I hope this helps her out a bit, it works flawless for me so I can't wait to see if she will break it.

Many parts of the GNU operating system, which Stallman began building in early 1984, remain central to the free and open source software ecosystem today.

I'm looking for some suggested reading on process management. Either standalone docs or books with food sections on process control under Linux. I've got systems with occasional run away processes that I need to wrangle in. I know of various ways to keep processes from over running the system resources but what about when these processes hang around too long and it's time to say good bye?submitted by /u/TreeFitThee
