That feature is on Gnome Terminal like for ever, but I never thought to use it that way! 

So we can simply get different Shells per profile! Super super awesome!

To those that don't do JS developing, but they still use JS programs. And there are really cool JS console programs! Node is the next GNU tools :p

DO NOT use NodeJS from your distro package manager. It will lead you to all weird issues. It can install commands with the same names as other programs, it will need admin privileges to install Node programs (npm install -g app), & your Node applications won't run efficiently, or might don't run/installed at all. 

Instead use a Node Version Manager. This is what I use:
https://github.com/creationix/nvm

There are more managers, but all do pretty much the same. They set runtime paths & the Node programs under your $HOME. You can select multiple versions, you can set a default version, you can update, remove & so on. 

Again, installing Node from your distro packages is bad. Use a Node Version Manager is good :p

That ofc applies to more environments. Go, Ruby, Python. Try to do system isolated installations whenever is possible!

Yeah installing everything globally is generally a terrible idea. I basically only keep a handful of things I use constantly in the global cache - Mocha, Chai, Express, and a few other utilities.

Pretty sure it is still Bash :/

Preferable scripting language for Linux things?
(Just "typical" scripting )

+Dragos Cirjan Yes portability is an issue. Every machine has bash. But the question was actually whats your preferred language, not what are you forced to use :)

I see so many huge scripts, spawning so many commands for parsing text, or other files operations.. and I feel like "Guys, there is JS, simpler, safer, probably faster too!" 

Not to mention that you can save & distribute (if you want) your scripts on NPM registry!

That's the way to change backgrounds! A more dictatorship model than the current, that will pick the wallpaper for you :)

But seriously, just a simple illustration of RobotJS, with the user unable to interact till automation is finished.

Using Cinnamon a bit lately, and while it has many annoyances (who hasn't?!), it does make you wondering. Why some 2nd generation Linux desktops, drop the traditional bottom bars?

It makes sense on small devices, but on desktop? Why?

+Michael Mistretta There is no such thing as personal preference, that's un-important! I mean Gnome (& rest) is designed for everyone, not for personal preferences :)

Yeap Gnome activities is still the strongest point of Gnome, but I think there is much space for improvements on other elements. Talking from UI point of view.

A nice screenshot and also the strongest point of Ubuntu phone! You connect a mouse on it, and boom! You get the desktop edition!

Perhaps we need a bigger screen too, but thank you God of Consumption, we are full of those!

+No Nombre For me Firefox is not an option, as long as I cannot import all the things I have on Chrome. Plus I'm very used to Chrome's profile management & some Chrome extensions.

Small hint. If you're using Pantheon Terminal, you can change fonts and fonts size from DConf-Editor. For example in case you use PowerLine that needs custom fonts. 

eg.
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings font "Inconsolata-dz for Powerline Medium 11"

There is also an option to set the default Shell! So basically you can use Gnome Terminal with Bash and Pantheon Terminal with another shell by default. A small convenience :)

Not sure if I should post this, but whatever! That's a work in progress for a new Gnome default theme! 

And NO! It's not MD!

OBVIOUSLY that was a joke! GNOME isn't creating such theme. That's a 3rd party theme!

+Joshua Strobl You just could say that you agree with +Daniel Foré, it would save you the typing :)

About your last part. I'm a very democratic person. I'm not only able to talk, I'm also able to listen. To really listen.

So in the same ankle, I would expect others to be also able to listen, when someone says "That is a poor choice, leading on bullshit developing". 

Not talking about you here, but it has come to my attention, that people don't  care about misinformation, but for not getting negative comments. I can't remember anyone to complain when someone says something is "good" when actually is "shit". That is misinformation too, right?

Also, I'm not mad on your comment, really, neither I respond angry. I'm just saying :)

Probably too early to say, but The Qt Company (Digia) should be nominated as the most "significant" Linux desktop company for 2015!

It's funny how open source technology changes so fast, and turns things upside down. Wondering what 2016 will bring!

+John Layt Alright, since you're Qt contributor I'll trust your judgment on this matter. So I removed that part from the original post. Besides, personally I only care for being open source. The rest sound kinda details to me :)

RobotJS is a desktop automation library for Node, supporting Linux, Windows, OS X.

https://github.com/octalmage/robotjs

In this example, Robot will move the cursor down 100px and activate left click!

I told my computer to call me in 5! ..But it was just an expression of speaking. It was more like 6 or 7!

Should we start report bugs on those? :p

Patreon page!
https://www.patreon.com/wogue +Tube, because Patreon needs one!

Why?
Very honest answer, the lack of funding was the reason for stopping updating worldofgnome.org, which was an okay news page, & kinda sad is dead now. Truth is that every effort without some financial reward is destined to end, sooner than later.

The fund-raising is for buying some spare hardware for making Linux stuff reviews on YouTube, and if ..if it runs good, to revive worldofgnome.org.

Why2
So why to donate on a news blog, instead of directly to an open source project? Very good question, but people do all the crazy things :p

What if
If fundraising fails ..well, nothing to lose. Either you, or me :)
