Adobe's new free font: Source Code Pro
Adobe yesterday released its free and open source Type family, Source Code Pro, which includes an eye-pleasing monospace font ideally suited for coding. In the past, and at the recommendation of Fernando Perez, I’ve used the beautiful (but non-free) Consolas by Microsoft; now, which is best? To install on Linux: Grab the font. Copy the files to ~/.fonts. Run fc-cache -f -v. The font should now be available for selection in apps such as Firefox, Gnome Terminal, etc.
Emacs package management
EDIT 2023-01-06: Nowadays, there is use-package. I recently tried to install MuMaMo as one of the dependencies for Takafumi Arakaki’s Emacs-based IPython notebook. The instructions on the MuMaMo webpage were as clear as mud and aimed primarily at Windows users. Enters apt-get for Emacs! My Emacs setup is shared across multiple machines: a synchronized elisp folder, containing *.el files, along with my .emacs configuration. el-get allows you to share your package installation folder in a similar fashion.
