Open Money- A look at Personal Financial Software for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to personal financial 
| software choices, the Windows folks have 
| historically had plenty of choicesâ with a 
| few major ones that seemed obvious. 
| However, the fine folks over on the Linux 
| side of the wall have not had the same 
| corporate weight thrown into its available 
| products, making it a bit harder to choose 
| a decent package.


TestDisk is a Great Recovery Tool

,----[ Quote ]
| TestDisk is a great tool for recovering 
| files from a broken disk. My wife's hard 
| drive crashed yesterday and it turned out 
| to be a corrupt boot sector. I booted to a 
| Kubuntu Live USB and was able to use 
| TestDisk to recover the MBR from the backup 
| (it was NTFS which keeps a backup at a 
| different part of the drive) and copy the 
| files I needed to a USB key.

Scribus: Worth the Effort for the Linux-Loving Desktop Publisher

,----[ Quote ]
| Desktop publishing applications are 
| different from word processing programs. 
| Desktop publishing isn't a sit-and-start-
| typing task; it requires more input from 
| the user in terms of page layout, spacing 
| and how elements are arranged. This might 
| require a little more learning on the 
| user's part, but if you're on Linux and 
| desktop publishing is your thing, Scribus 
| provides a robust set of options.


Review: LuckyBackup for Linux systems

,----[ Quote ]
| Backups are a crucial aspect of any PC 
| users work. No matter if you are a home 
| user who uses the PC for home banking or a 
| data center administrator who depends upon 
| backups as the go-to failsafe for petabytes 
| of company data, without a backup you could 
| find yourself dead in the water.
| [...]
| If your Linux machines need a solid, GUI-
| based backup, you need to look at 
| LuckyBackUp. Its flexibility and ease of 
| use cannot be matched in any GUI-based 
| Linux application. And just because 
| LuckyBackUp is geared toward ease of use, 
| doesnât mean it canât handle larger jobs. 
| If your server has a GUI, LuckyBackUp can 
| easily take care of that as well.

- From the Sys Admin Toolbox: Logwatch

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week we provided an introduction to 
| the Linux system logs. (See Logs: Your 
| Linux Systemâs Lovable Worker Bees.) Now, 
| what will you, as a system administrator, 
| use to watch logs? Logwatch, of course. As 
| so many others have succinctly put it, 
| messing with log files is a royal pain in 
| the backside. Logwatch makes the experience 
| of keeping track of system activity almost 
| painless for you.
