I'm a PhD Student with applied mathematics as a background.

In terms of programming, working primarily with Java environment, but have previous experience with MATLAB, C and a bit Perl. I've been trying (for a long time) to find time and energy to get into functional programming paradigm (read: Scala and Haskell), statistical modeling/programming with R.

I have also gotten my hands dirty with HTML and CSS, on multiple occasions, likewise with XML and LaTeX.

Does this approach have any undesired side effects I should be aware of?

comment Having Virtualbox disk images on /opt
@AlexandreAlves just to make it clear, are you suggesting creating a folder as root under /opt/ and changing ownership of this folder to my user account?

comment What are possible issues with installing a package from the developer instead of the distro-repositories
@njsg great answer, thanks.. How do you deal with software that is not packaged for your distro, then? Can you think of any real-life practical examples in which installing a software from the developer breaks the existing system?

@jordanm so you're saying don't skip the repo unless you want to bother with maintenance?

Cool! I presume one would want to have an alias for that though? :)

comment Checklist for a painless distro-migration for a workstation: what should I keep in mind?
I have heard of this before tho never really tried. It assumes that the new installation will play nicely with the "old" /home, which should in theory be true. The other bit about keeping preferences etc on version tracking I am not really familiar with, could you perhaps elaborate about it? (not too familiar with using version tracking in anything other than programming projects)
