This is just my first post to get the blogging assignment started for Intro to Unix. I had a Ubuntu 12.04 installation setup already before this class so I was able to mess around and customize the user interface prior to the start of the semester. I found the GNOME 3 environment to be a lot nicer and simpler than the Unity one so I had that setup. I also have used github for several other projects so I have familiarized myself with git and have that already setup on my computer.
Apart from this class, I am also enrolled in the Applied Software Engineering class which will also be using the Linux environment. I installed the Qt library and IDE for that class so hopefully I will get a good grasp of that library with both of these classes.
I will try to post on this blog approximately every week updating on my Unix progress and my thoughts on Unix.
