LottaNZB 0.5.3 Usenet client

,----[ Quote ]
| LottaNZB 0.5.3 Usenet client for Linux is 
| released. It both features some new bells 
| and whistles, making the application ready 
| for future releases of your favorite 
| GNU/Linux distribution, but also includes 
| numerous bug fixes.


Desktop publishing for Linux at its finest

| There is one caveat with this program 
| though. It cannot import any proprietary 
| files, i.e. PageMaker files. If you have 
| old files that you created in a proprietary 
| program, you must recreate the file from 
| scratch. Apparently the developers of 
| Scribus did not want to encounter any 
| issues with the proprietary programs, so 
| they decided to stay away and make Scribus 
| completely independent.


Easily Install Windows Applications In Linux With Wine-doors

,----[ Quote ]
| By now, you should have already heard of 
| the popular Wine software that allows you 
| to install Windows applications in Linux. 
| There is also another paid application â 
| CrossOver that utilities Wine and comes 
| with a simplified GUI to help you get the 
| job done easier. Now, hereâs another 
| software that is as powerful as Wine and as 
| user-friendly as Crossover, and best of 
| all, it is free.



Another Look at Wine for Running Windows Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| In my dressing down of Wine, I noted that
| users are unlikely to find Wine mentioned in
| their ISV's support matrices, but, as I
| learned, two of the most frequently-
| recommended MySQL query tools I encountered,
| PremiumSoft's Navicat Lite and the open source
| HeidiSQL, owe their Linux support to none
| other than the Wine project.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
