3G woes: maybe NetworkManager isn't that bad? 

,----[ Quote ]
| I won't talk here about the awful user 
| interfaces (supplied by the carriers and you 
| must use them) which make your eyes hurt, brain 
| explode and usability die (compared with them 
| NetworkManager is a breeze). My problem here is 
| with making them both work together on the same 
| computer, which on Linux is natural: you add 
| the connections in NM (with a wizard) and just 
| select whatever you want from a menu.


Five tips for a more efficient Linux desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| For me, the Linux desktop is all about being 
| efficient. Yes, I do enjoy the eye candy as 
| well. But having an incredibly efficient 
| desktop just makes for much faster, more 
| reliable work. And much to the surprise of 
| most users, Linux should be hailed as the 
| king of desktop efficiency. There are many 
| ways to have an efficient desktop in Linux, 
| but I have narrowed the list down to these 
| five tips. Even if you employ only a couple 
| of these techniques, your desktop experience 
| will become far more efficient.



21 of the Best Free Linux Productivity Tools

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the essential ingredients to running a successful business is
| maintaining an advantage over your competition. Many different types of
| computer software can significantly enhance performance at the workplace, or
| in the home. A polished office suite, a reliable backup system, an intuitive
| desktop environment, even a welcome break from reality with an immersive game
| all have their part to play in helping users achieve their maximum potential.


Be a Productive Linux User

| Use Terminator: Terminator is a nice way to free your valuable screen space
| from multiple terminal windows. Instead of using one terminal window for each
| task, divide an existing window horizontally or vertically each time you need
| a new terminal window. So if you find yourself using 8 terminal windows, you
| can use Terminator and pack your terminals into 2 windows.


Be super-productive with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It might sound a bit weird but the kind of Operating System youâre probably
| using may affect your productivity at work! Though, a user is a more
| responsible entity when it comes to productivity, but somewhere
| down-the-line, we can hold your operating system responsible for the same.

Why Open Source contributes to productivity

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source software has become quite popular lately and I think itâs awesome
| that free software like Amarok, Open Office, GIMP and so on, are becoming so
| good that they not only rival their paid counterparts, but surpass them in
| many ways.  


Kubuntu days...productive days

,----[ Quote ]
| So, what is the point? It is that, for non technical users, as I am, Kubuntu
| have reached a point where I'm able to do with linux everything I used to be
| able to do in windows, install it, make partitions, configure a network,
| install apps, share printers and directories, configure wifi devices, create
| users, etc. very easily. In fact, I can do more things now that I could in
| windows.    
| We can improve a lot though, but it has been a confirmation of what I already
| knew (we all know). With linux I'm more productive, even in tedious actions
| like the ones I've done these days.  


Matthias Ettrich: The KDE-Man!

| Nobody in their right mind would choose Windows over GNU/Linux based on the
| desktop experience alone, says Matthias Ettrich.


Switching from KDE to WinXP #2

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion
| I have looked at several features that KDE?s Konqueror has but that
| WinXP's Explorer doesn't have. I have also mentioned a few of the
| things I don't like about Explorer and often why I think Konqueror's way of
| doing it is better. You may have noticed that there is nothing positive
| about Explorer. That is true and it is not for lack of trying. The fact is,
| for me, the way I work, there is just nothing special about Explorer. I
| didn't find any feature that struck me as being especially cool or useful
| that Konqueror didn?t also have.
| Switching from KDE to WindowsXP at work has seriously impaired my
| productivity.
