It's all about Linux distros.

Image
As we, all know that Windows is not the only OS that is into the mainstream. Yet it’s a fact that Windows powers 93% of the total pc market, it’s not always your OS of choice, considering you have to do more sophisticated and not so common tasks like kernel level programming, editing your OS to its core and all other things that follow. And this is where comes Linux to rescue you from all that sort of limitations and bounding. Linux is an open source Unix-like Operating System, actually “The Linux Kernel” to be specific, which drives your system. Since it’s licensed under GNU licence, Linux has been ported to a variety of different systems and architectures.
Linux Distributions
As already mentioned, Linux has an open source model. This means one is free to use Linux on his/her system in any way he wants. Whether he wants a particular component to be removed or needs some additional features to be built right into the core of OS, he/she can do so by building his/her own custom OS. Now …

Google's Hidden Easter Eggs

Image
For what stuffs do you use Google? You might say for searching the internet, or using its email services. But what I say? I say that I use Google for showing me a full fledged barrel roll, or to flip me a coin. Really.. If you don't believe me then Google for "do a barrel roll". See? It works like charm. If you want to know some more funny tricks then continue reading.
1.Do A Barrel Roll Okay, so this one's a common one. But I'm still sure that many people don't know that your Google homepage can do a barrel roll.

Understanding Programming Environments [Command Based Programming, non IDE based]

Image
Many times I come across to a situation when a friend of mine would ask me for helping him/her to set up the programming environment. The real trouble that we all generally face is the ability to correlate the programming environment in different operating system. I mean, when someone is told in college/workplace to code a C program in "gedit" and compile it using "gcc" in Ubuntu (or any other Linux distro), he might have have a hard time doing the same on his own laptop or system at home, because he has Windows for gaming, off course.We all know that every Linux distro out there sucks for gaming. Well, gaming apart, this article will help those who have a hard time setting up the identical programming environment on Windows as is on Linux.

Compiler First things first. It is the compiler that will turn your code into something which is executable on the system. By executable, I mean "a.out" on Ubuntu, "a.exe" on Windows, "a.ipa" on an…

Image
Hello Guys! In one of the previous posts, I wrote about some the best custom designed UI (on ROMs)  available for Android. Well for all that you need to root your phone and rooting phones can sometime become really painful, especially if you own a smartphone which is not officially supported by the ROM developer. So now what? If you want to customise the UI of your Android phone without going through all those complicated and time consuming methods of rooting your phone, what'd you do? The best solution is probably to install a custom third-party launcher.
What's an Android launcher? In layman's terms, Android launcher is the end-user app to interact with all the other apps installed on the phone. A typical Android launcher comes with a means (such as an app drawer) to launch the apps along with other features such as homescreen, wallpapers, theming, fonts, transitions and other long bunch of customisation.
