10 obscure Linux applications you need to try
| Do a search for Linux applications on Freshmeat and you’ll get around 11,828
| hits. (As of January 12, 2008, that was the tally.) Of those 11,828
| applications, which ones are worth using? Not 100 percent of them for sure.
| Still, buried within that grand total you will find a few gems that get zero
| publicity but are worth giving a go. This article will highlight some these
| little-known apps, which range from multimedia to certificate authority tools
| and anything/everything in between.
Shutter (aka GScrot): Screenshot Utility on Steroids
,----[ Quote ]
| Writing computer-related tutorials, documentation, articles, etc., is
| virtually impossible without a good utility for taking screenshots -- and
| Shutter (formerly known as GScrot) has all the features you could possible
Edubuntu update - still rocking
,----[ Quote ]
| So what's the verdict? Seat of the pants testing suggests that
| performance of the thin client network isn't quite on par with
| Microsoft Terminal Services (I have an identical test server
| running Windows Server 2003) or Citrix systems. However, for
| the majority of home, school, and SOHO applications, Edubuntu
| represents an incredible value and brilliantly easy setup.
| Performance issues aside, setup is quite a ways ahead of that
| offered by Microsoft and Citrix and certainly more accessible
| for the average user. This is a really mature release and I
| can't wait to see what is offered by the 7.10 release slated
| for this fall.
