Groovy is an almost perfect complement to Java, providing a compact, highly expressive and compatible scripting environment for my use. Of course, Groovy isn't totally perfect; as with any programming language, its design is based on a series of trade-offs that need to be understood in order to produce quality results. But for me, Groovy's advantages far outweigh its disadvantages, making it an indispensable part of my data analysis toolkit. In a series of articles, I'll explain how and why.

One of the great strengths of the Perl community is CPAN, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. If you've written a module for Perl that might be useful to others, the community encourages you to release it on CPAN. Given that the Perl community also encourages experimentation and play, part of the CPAN namespace is reserved for modules that could be considered frivolous or trivial, the Acme:: hierarchy.
Ubuntu and Linux Mint are currently arguably 2 of the most popular Linux distros (with Debian) around.

If winecfg is a screwdriver, winetricks is a power drill. They both have their place, but winetricks is just a much more powerful tool. Actually, it even has the ability to launch winecfg. While winecfg gives you the ability to change the settings of WINE itself, winetricks gives you the ability to modify the actual Windows layer. It allows you to install important components like .dlls and system fonts as well as giving you the capability to edit the Windows registry. It also has a task manager, an uninstall utility, and file browser.
Smartphones put a wealth of games at user's fingertips, but many of the proprietary games are loaded with advertisements, in-app purchases, and other features that create less-than-stellar play experiences.
