There should be a poll on that somewhere.

Linux Mint 11 is taking LibreOffice over OpenOffice by default now
Yeah. Almost every Linux distro that has been updated recently uses LibreOffice, because OpenOffice is pretty much dead.

I thought they were the same thing. Guess not.

OpenOffice and LibreOffice are (almost) the exact same thing. Just imagine that the project changed name when it reached a certain release... Of course, it's a bit trickier than that, but LibreOffice uses the exact same code as OpenOffice - but they've been updating it.

Oracle messed up something with OpenOffice when they bought Sun (I think they didn't wanted to make OpenOffice entierely community-driven), so this led to lots of unsatisfied developers to quit Oracle and fork OpenOffice to make LibreOffice in the name of the Document Foundation. Or something like that.

In short, some people hates Oracle.

I would start by getting Ruby for Linux, apparently it's pretty easy to set up too ^-^

I personally would say get codeblocks(all around IDe good for almost any language I use) If you use python make sure you download all of the modules you need and the correct versions of those modules

If I didn't know better I'd think Ruby were your favorite programming language, Ashbad :P
If you're into programming, then sure, install your language of choice. (if it isn't already. Most distros include Python, Perl, and probably Java right out of the box.)

Ubuntu doesn't include Java (not the JDK, at least), so if you know it make sure you install the JDK.

Basically, get whatever you want. The Ubuntu Software Center search bar is great.

You have to use synaptic for some of these things though.

synaptic or terminal depends if you want gui.
If you aren't completely ure of the package name use synaptic

EDIT: don't get OpenOffice it randomly crashes at least in linux mint 10 which is almost the same thing as Ubuntu 10.08
Anyone know what the most stable of these three are?
