Miguel de Icaza is one of the personalities Open Source . Although his last steps in this segment have been somewhat controversial because of their affiliation to the world-Mono Microsoft recognizes Icaza, Open Source is an implementation. NET, do not forget that de Icaza was the founder of the GNOME project, and other projects.
diving in his biography I found a fact that did not know De Icaza is the creator of Midnight Commander , a myth of Linux utilities “console” and very popular used by Linux users around the world.
and this program has now spoken on his blog, one of the best names in the blogosphere in my opinion, tyranny is surprised to see how many users of Linux and Mac OS X not have a sufficient basis to understand to what extent can control their operating systems.
Hence we encourage everyone to read some books on the topic and also follow some tutorials and using some tools. The tips below:
Unix Programming Environment : This book by Kernighan and Pike covers many of the characteristics of modern Unix systems, but according to de Icaza is an essential book for understanding the basis of many components.
fot the Impatient Unix : is a book much easier to read, with practical help and allowing us to enjoy reading, according to the original post, from beginning to end.
Emacs : Here things start to get complicated, because I know for a fact that many of you readers muylinuxeros, you use alternatives such as vi / vim or nano. But advocates Icaza Emacs and strongly recommended to follow his entire tutorial, which you can access by launching Emacs and then pressing the Ctrl-h and then t. Over the next 2 hours we will understand the operation of an editor … goes far beyond being an editor.
Midnight Commander : a little self-promotion here talking about the advantages of using MC as a file browser instead of performing these operations from the terminal. The truth is that it is a good idea to save time in many operations, especially if we learn the long list of keyboard shortcuts that optimize the use of Midnight Commander. Unix Power Tools
: According to de Icaza, this book is a compilation of tips written by some of the most experienced users of Unix. The truth is that it looks great.
last tip de Icaza is more curious, and is learn typing with applications such as Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing (do not know if it is available in Castilian, I guess because it’s pretty famous), although one of the comments here vote for a much more fun to learn to type: The Typing of the Dead game, which I fear is only in English, but it must be pretty original.
original and interesting collection sure I can be helpful . Especially coming from someone like Miguel de Icaza, who has quite a few tables in this world of Linux and Open Source;)
