Linux Mint 16: A Personal Experience

Ever since Linux Mint 16 hit the public stage with it's Release Candidate, I have been wanting to try it out so bad. This was back in November 2013, just a few weeks before the final release. I've read the blog post about 'What's New' in Cinnamon 2.0 and my mouth just hung wide open. This new release had killer features that (in my experience) no other operating system have natively support. That is, Edge-Tiling and Edge-Snapping.

Let me tell you about Edge-Tiling. If you are a frequent multitasker like myself, you would find yourself with many different programs and windows open. In Windows (and previous versions of Linux Mint), you only had the choice of snapping your window to the left or right side of your screen. However with the improved version of Edge-Tiling, you are now able to snap windows to all 4 corners of your screen! I found this extremely helpful for my multitasking. This meant I could check my emails, watch videos, view my file transfer progress and work with terminal all on one screen!

Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga. - Episode 1 [v.P]

Do you have a little sister fetish? Then "Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga." is for you.
Or if you prefer the English title: Lately, my little sister's been a little weird.
A RomCom anime. A boy suddenly gains a step-little sister and said sister gets possessed by some ghost/spirit that needs to fall in love with the brother in order to "move on" to the next stage.
The art isn't too brilliant.
Apparently step-brother-sister isn't taboo in Japan.

This is not my cup of tea so I'm dropping it. But if hearing a young girl calling you "onii-chan" tickles your fancy then by all means follow this series.

Witch Craft Works - Episode 1 [v.P]

First episode and I'm loving it already!
There's not too much into the story except a boy suddenly find himself surrounded by witches that want to kill/kidnap him, and one very popular girl calls him "her princess" and vows to protect him forever.
 The wolf-girl and the megane-girl are totally my type!

Kuroko no Basuke: Episode 38 [v.P]

I'll do it tomorrow
