[linux] It's TOP and more

I've been using top for checking processes for CPU and memory usage but there's even more user-friendly way to check it. Here comes htop.

htop is an interactive process viewer that is similiar to top but more, it's interactive, easier to understand and it has graphs.

To install on debian/ubuntu
sudo apt-get install htop
To install on CentOS/Fedora
yum install htop


[ubuntu] Use wicd instead of network-manager

Tired of entering your password every time Network Manager connects to a wireless/wired device on first boot?

Replace it with wicd :D
sudo apt-get install wicd

Then remove Network Manager
sudo apt-get remove network-manager

Restart your system and you're done.
