My business partner, Alexis, posted a good blog for us old Linux fogies. I also used to start X from a console window. Ubuntu kind of cured me of that habit (I use lightdmexclusively).

Software developers who see the world as a series of systems in need of optimization have turned that instinct inward. Call it the six abs of highly effective techies—HGH bodies for PHP minds.
