Gnome/Mate terminal maximized by default

…In case, when Compiz is used as Window Manager. I use Mate and Compiz as Window manager. According information from the Internet, there is only one way to run Gnome Terminal (and any derivative terminals, like Mate Terminal): run it with option --maximize. Better solution implemented in KDE Terminal - Konsole, it just save last window geometry. Command line option good… But… you should point it everywhere where terminal runs: menu entries, shortcuts, application settings where terminal pointed… There is no way to point such option for application runs in terminal.

Why may Linux driver developers hate distros like CentOS?

A recent incident from my life. Deal with CentOS 7.5. Base kernel for it - 3.10.0. Keep it in mind. CenOS kernel 3.10.0-862 contains back ported ALSA stack from newer kernels. New stack discards snd_card_create call and replace it with snd_card_new that mostly same, but put additional argument to the front of parameters: int snd_card_create( int idx, const char *xid, struct module *module, int extra_size, struct snd_card **card_ret) vs int snd_card_new (struct device *parent, int idx, const char *xid, struct module *module, int extra_size, struct snd_card **card_ret); (arguments aligned by me)
