Linux super-duper admin tools: Strace 

,----[ Quote ]
| strace is a mighty tool. It's so simple to 
| use, yet it offers rewards almost 
| instantly. I do admit it's not for 
| everyone, definitely not the majority of 
| home users, but with some patience, basic 
| investigative instinct combined with a 
| curious soul and desire to learn, you can 
| put strace to smart use. 


New project: marave, a relaxed text editor

,----[ Quote ]
| Marave (nothing, in guaranÃ) is a relaxed 
| text editor. Its goal is to let you focus 
| in your writing, free of visual 
| distractions and clutter.
| It is written using PyQt, so it should work 
| in all major platforms, and it is licensed 
| under the GPLv2 so it is free software.

Distromania: A Multi-booting Template

,----[ Quote ]
| People often ask why there are so many 
| Linux distributions. No one seems to ask 
| why there are so many items in a buffet 
| spread or so much variety in a botanical 
| garden. The large number of distributions 
| sure makes it difficult to pick the right 
| one for a particular task; but having 
| picked the right distribution, you have it 
| better adapted for the task at hand.



No, terminal apps are not dying

,----[ Quote ]
| But I do know, and believe in, this: Open
| source software has many beautiful and
| amazing advantages over the closed-source
| model. And only one of those benefits is
| the idea â no, the proven principle that,
| 10 or 20 or even 50 years down the road,
| someone might pick up some crusty old
| tarball off a backup server somewhere in a
| forgotten university somewhere on the
| planet, take a look at the source code and
| add a new spark of life to an otherwise
| lusterless, forgotten application.
| Old programs donât die, they just patiently
| await reincarnation. ;)
