GNU Octave is a project started by James Rawlings and John Ekerdt, but its main developer is John Eaton, with the name inspired by the chemist Octave Levenspiel.
Octave is able to solve many different problems using its native functionalities and can be extended using its programming language, the code being executed line-by-line every time you run an Octave program. Octave also features some handy plotting capabilities that we cover later in this tutorial, although it’s worth bearing in mind that Octave’s main purpose is for performing mathematical and numerical computations – it is not a replacement for general-purpose programming languages such as C, Objective-C or C++
I want something fast, efficient, that never (ever) crashes doesn't require me to use any desktop environments, works across ssh well offers basic functionalities like search operations ideally inline (bash?) scripting and of course can handle humongous amounts of files on any file system well (WITHOUT delay or crashes) out of the box but highly customizable infinite simultaneous folder-on-folder operations drag-and-drop relationships basically what nautilus should now look like if gnome had not decided to badly immitate Apple and Windows at the same time....
Anything of the sort available?
Gentoo: crashes, somewhat cludgy and not actively maintained, allows only 2 folders at a time, only one operation at a time => shit Nautilus: crashes, not customizable, super slow on large amounts of files generally painful => shit The KDE thing .. don't ask
Please, something.submitted by hotnerds77

First off, Happy SysAdmin Day. We think we have a pretty good SysAdmin surprise in store for you today as we are announcing the CoreOS stable release channel. Starting today, you can begin running CoreOS in production. This version is the most tested, secure and reliable version available for users wanting to run CoreOS. This is a huge milestone for us. Since our first alpha release in August 2013:
191 releases have been tagged
Tested on hundreds of thousands of servers on the alpha and beta channels
Supported on 10+ platforms, ranging from bare metal to being primary images on Rackspace and Google.
As the second part of our Linux graphics testing this week after a Radeon R600/RadeonSI performance update with the Linux 3.16 kernel and Mesa 10.3-devel are some comparative numbers that include Intel's Haswell HD Graphics and various NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on the Nouveau driver.
What we have for this article are the benchmarks of an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs (and the integrated HD Graphics of the Core i7 Devil's Canyon processor used for testing all the hardware) with the latest open-source graphics drivers using Linux 3.16 and Mesa 10.3-devel. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was running on the system with using the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA for the latest kernel and the Oibaf PPA for the updated graphics drivers.
Happy SysAdmin Day 2014! Over the past three weeks we've been profiling the Linux Foundation's heroic team of system administrators in honor of the amazing work they do behind the scenes to keep this organization and our collaborative projects humming. Here are some of their best quotes, which highlight just how talented, passionate and also fun-loving Linux SysAdmins really are.
Today is also the last day to nominate your system administrators for recognition here on Linux.com, as well as the chance to win free tickets to LinuxCon and CloudOpen North America taking place in Chicago August 20-22, 2014. Just email the Linux.com editors at firstname.lastname@example.org about why your SysAdmin should be recognized. Submissions are due by the end of the day today, July 25.
