July Challenge and Retrospective – Tux Time

This month my challenge will be to use Ubuntu on my new home machine “Angelus”. I have been a heavy Linux user in the past, but evil corporations 😉 have forced me to use Windows over the last years.

While vogella.de runs on Ubuntu the server and does not require frequent changes and therefore my Linux bash skills are getting a bit rusty. I also want to make use of find, grep, awk and the like and cywin it just not the same thing.

Also all the cool things (Git, compile OpenJDK, compile Android, …) runs easily on Ubuntu. So lets see if I manage to go back to the real thing. 🙂


Regarding my last months challenge Updating Tutorial to Eclipse 3.6 I think I did pretty good. I updated around 10 tutorials (I believe). There are still lots of tutorial which requires updates, I hope that I will find time in the future to do so.
