    Non-programmer using Linux!

    At the Cage, where I play football (the real football), I met someone from Psychology field that is using Linux! So, I thought that it would be interested to make him some questions...

    Pseudo-interview with him on my pseydo-site.
    Code - functions and small libraries I use


    It’s 2014 and I still use printf() for debugging.

    Ok, so now, other guys are interested in Linux too. One is asking if there is an edition of them ubuntu for tablets and if so, how can he install them.


    //However, I do not know how the battery can last with Linux on!

    it's true that linux-based tablets tend to have battery life issues, but there is a distribution of ubuntu for tablets, and although it isn't released yet, you can get it and install it. Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }

    Thanks for the info, I am going to share it with him..Has anyone tried them?

    But if he installs Linux, he loses his guarantee... I will suggest him not to do it!

    I haven't tried it yet, but violating warranties is a normal part of hacking/programming. you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }

    He is a mathematician! He is inspired by the article in post #1!
