[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Instapaper is finally available on the Android platform. If you're unfamiliar with the iPhone-originating app, it's an offline reader with a difference. I've always had a problem with offline readers. Offline readers, like the good-looking Pulse, function by pulling in XML feeds online.

I installed Linux Mint 13 LTS "Maya" Xfce on my personal laptop today, and it seems to be working really well in replicating my old experience. So far I'm pretty happy with it.

Subject: Is usability breaking Linux adoption?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Android is based on the Linux kernel, same as other Linux based operating systems, however is quite easy to use for many.Linux on the other hand, has seen usability vastly improve over the years. However, it looks like usability is yet to become a critical factor in Linux development, yet remains a stumbling block for many adopters, despite being free. This leaves Linux a preserve for technical users who can figure out the many configurations that need to be tweaked time and again.Android is proof enough that a more usable linux experience would lead to more Linux users. How long before we get there?

Subject: Kororaa 17: What Fedora should be

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Let’s be realistic for a moment here. I believe that there is not a single Fedora user who doesn’t use repositories that conflict with Fedora’s policy and default selection ideology. Not even the most hardcore Fedora developers can use the completely useless system that Fedora is out of the box, without adding third party sources and pieces of proprietary software.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

MediaBox is the most simplistic media player you’ll ever use. It uses GStreamer and is able to playback all the files supported by it.This means that you can play both music and video files using MediaBox to do it, using very little resources and a very simple way to choose the files you want to playback.

Subject: Speed Up with Midori

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Sometimes, human minds get stuck without a reason between two options, jumping from the one to the other, never finding exactly what they are looking for. This is what happens to most people with today’s browsers. Almost no one completely likes Firefox and Chrome for their own personal reasons, but everyone keeps trying both when a newer version becomes available. Time to make a step towards something “greener” and give Midori a try!

Red Hater David Zeuthen in his blog introduces all the new features in Gnome Disks 3.6 and also refers to the upcoming new options for Gnome 3.8. There are some nice additions; some are just optics and some are useful tools, but in my opinion not everything is perfect and complete.
