As a new user I'd like to start some meta-discussion:
I noticed that there exist two visually indistinguishable communities on G+, both named Linux.

There's this Linux, topping at almost 250k users,
and there's a second Linux just shy of 50k users.

Why is that?

+Jan de Haan I'm sorry, but I'll bite. Why am I a "holdout" if I choose to run different software than you?

Why did Unix/Linux survive many decades of vi vs emacs, bsd vs sysv init, gcc vs egcs, gnome vs kde, qt vs gtk, wars, but it's only this one that engenders such animosity?

I simply don't wish to use you-know-what, and except in certain circles, generally get heavily criticized for holding that opinion.

*Hello, Google Plus*

Here I go pouring myself out here from on now.

I will end up writing up about my hardware and software day-to-day challenges as a currently unemployed person who began coding 11 years ago, when I was 13.

For now I can tell you that I love the smell of WD-40, and I am too ashamed to show you my desktop computer. It's not that bad, it's just all over my room. [small]AND IT DOESN'T HAVE UNNECESSARY PARTS AT THIS POINT[/small].

I know, I'm terrible at this, but hell - everyone is at their beginning. Tell me what you want!

This I can get behind.

And you're at your best, when you don't limit yourself. But being at 100% is so demanding...

Hello.
I'm a new Google+ user, so any input will be appreciated!

I encountered a community I won't name that's just shy of 250k users. There's also a community of the same name that has nearly 50k users.
Their topic is the same.

How can I unify my view of both of them? How can I cross-post my posts between two of them without much hassle? Is there something that'd allow me to browse those two communities, and only those two communities in one stream?

Thanks in advance!

+John VanRoekel Spam prevention thing is actually a good point. I wouldn't want to end up on some kind of spam list.

While I don't even know how to determine how many users share both communities, I guess you're right - there's a pretty good chance there'd be little to no benefit from posting to both.

Thanks.

Also thanks +Paul Snedden for input!

Two weeks ago expired my guarantee period on my personal tablet: SM-P900, aka Note Pro 12" (16GB).

I think it's time to get deep into this beauty, and for the first time in over 2 years: deliver the rooting it DESERVES!

I'm holding on to my hat! Let's go!

How to format text on Google+ posts and comments:

Take notice of the spaces between words! Sometimes it does not work...
Google's chief G+ architect is working on this, so let's be patient!
