"Wasting intern time? That's an oxymoron."
+Rob Hawkins
I had an intern once and we wasted a lot of time reimplementing up2date for Red Hat Linux without a subscription. About a month later  yum was introduced for Fedora Core.

Fedora 22 Workstation running Gnome or another hardware accelerated desktop using OpenGL doesn't look very well on Intel chips. Tearing, rendering artefacts trailing mouse pointers and disappering symbols from the panels are a show stopper on #Fedora 22.

The solution for Intel graphics is to define a couple of additional parameters for the driver. To do so, create a new file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with

sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

For Intel Sandybridge or newer include these lines:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"
  Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
  Option "TearFree" "true"
EndSection

For Intel chips older than Sandybridge you need these lines:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"
  Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
EndSection

According to http://fedoramagazine.org/solution-graphics-issues-intel-graphics-chipsets-fedora-22/  there's also a new  Kernel  package on its way that will fix the rendering problems on older, pre-Sandybridge Intel chips.

Corrupted ODT files: LibreOffice doesn't know yet how to handle damaged OpenDocument files. Abiword (http://www.abiword.org) deals with them much better and just opened an unsound ODT flawlessly where LibreOffice 4.4 just threw I/O-errors.

On a side note: Microsoft Office also does a good job in recovering damaged documents.

When I want to know where  some aspects of my life are going and what I want to do next, I don't check the Outbox, I check the Drafts.
