LinuxBBQ is proud to announce the immediate availability of 'Cream', an installable live session that features no less than 76 window managers, untouched and vanilla from the developers' sources. Cream is an easy and quick way to test window managers, even those obscure ones that have never been featured in other Linux distributions before. We made sure to create a uniform look and feel, while staying on the light side in resource usage. Cream runs smoothly on any IBM-compatible PC with at least 256 MB of RAM. The live ISO image weighs in at 478 MB, so it can be put on a small USB stick or on CD. As an extra, there are framebuffer, tmux and TTY sessions included, as well as the Enlightenment desktop environment.

A month is a long time in Linux. Two months is almost an eternity. Many writers delivered their thoughts on Ubuntu 14.04 ages ago and have since moved on to Linux Mint 17.

Occasionally as seasoned Linux users, we run across simple things we never knew existed—and are amazed. Whether it's tab autocompletion, sudo !! for when you forgot to type sudo or even recursive file listing with ls, the smallest tricks can be so incredibly useful. Not long ago, I had one of those moments. Most people know rc.local is the file where you put commands you want to have start on system boot. Sometimes the rc.local script is disabled, however, and it doesn't work. It also can be difficult to remember the syntax for starting a particular program as a specific user. Plus, having a long list of programs in rc.local can just become ugly. Little did I know, cron supports not only periodic execution of commands, but it also can start programs when the system starts as well!
