Awesome Text Editor - Atom

10th October 2015

Since I started using Sublime Text 2, I have fallen in love with the simplicity design. Compared to other more "robust" integrated development environment (IDE), it was faster to run, more customisable, had a large community and some of the functionalities are simply awesome. Since Sublime Text requires a payment of $70, it is a little pricey for me. After I had enough with pop ups telling me to pay the licence fee, I decided to look for an alternative.

Installing linux on GUID Partition Table (GPT) disk

There are many advantages of GPT disks compared to Master Boot Record (MBR). MBR was introduced back in 1983, any technology being that old has a restriction in modern day computing, and MBR is no other. If you are interested, feel free to read up on the comparison between MBR and GPT, but I won't be explaining the differences here. Instead, I want to explain the issues I had with GPT and how to resolve it.
