This article was created especially for my son, who had hard times understanding using pointers and interfaces. To make the explanation complete, I added (with his help) two things: functions and methods. I see those two as a complement to pointers and/or interfaces. Or vice versa. This explanation is divided into six parts, each part adding onto previous part. I tried to make it all as simple as possible. The basics We will start with something very simple.
This article is written with 20+ years spent in development, 10+ years actively writing in Java, 7+ years actively writing in C# and 3+ years actively writing in Go. This article is a personal opinion. This article advocates you, to try and use Go language. Speed of development When I am about to write a piece of software nowadays (and I can surely write it in all three languages), I will always choose Go.
GUI (graphical user interface) is easy to use and goodlooking. But CLI (command line interface) is faster and easier to automate. Advantages of Command Line over Graphics Graphics are fancy but lack clarity and prone to errors and crashes and uses alot of resources (RAM, CPU and GPU). Here are some advantages. Lightweight Text Interface If you accomplish a task like converting mp4 to mp3 on command line using ffmpeg, it will be faster than using any other GUI program such as Format Factory (for Windows OS).

I tried too many Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Elementary OS, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Clear Linux OS, Endeavor OS, Fedora, Debian, Deepin, Peppermint os, Pop! OS, Parrot OS, Kali linux, Void Linux, Gentoo, MX Linux, Zorin OS and CentOS. I was a distrohopper! After all those experiments and daily usage of different distros (short for distributions) with different desktop environments and package managers. I come to a point of view.

Cutefish is an Arch-based Linux distribution which focuses on UI / UX. It is almost a Mac OS-clone (a.k.a Mac OS inspired). The desktop has the top bar with a global menu, and the bottom dock. It is Manjaro cutefish. If you want to check this Linux distribution, here is their official website.
ElementaryOS is a modern looking Linux distro. It is built on Ubuntu, a.k.a “based on Ubuntu”. Elementary focus on user experience and developers community. Elementary OS is focusing on the areas of problems which prevent Linux from being the common desktop operating system. Elementary tries to fix this bottleneck. Let’s discuss those things / ideas. Pay-what-you-want AppCenter Creating opensouce applications for Linux is not profitable at all. That’s a problem. Nobody will dedicate time and effort to create a free and opensource software.
Ubuntu is the defacto standard of Linux distributions. I love Ubuntu with GNOME desktop environment. Ubuntu Look Ubuntu has a unique look. I can differentiate it by the brownish color of desktop UI, and the left long panel. I really think that putting the apps panel on the left is the best position as we need the vertical space more than the horizontal space. Stable & Reliable Ubuntu is based on Debian.
