Moreover, it is also possible to have a portable pdf creator with you. This freeware is “OpenOffice.org Portable”, the portable version of the famous text editor developed by the open community and Sun Microsystem.
In the freeware section we posted a review about this particular feature of OpenOffice.
This week, in the Linux page you find a brief but effective post about the installation of rar and unrar. This post can be very useful to that people who use a Linux distribution without these two essential functions preinstalled.
A new technology news source was posted in the Hi Tech news and tips page. The post is dedicated to users who want to have wide daily information about technology trends.
This is our Linux week! In the Linux page you find some useful and very detailed tips for Linux beginners. In particular you will find two different posts about Automatix and how to install it in Kubuntu. Thank you for your comments and a special “Thank you!” (with a specific post) to Donncha who suggested us to try gThumb, a very good image viewer for Linux. Thank you all again and… See you next week!
This week we invite you to visit our brief reviews about Xnview, and GIMPShop, two essential graphic freewares for professional or common users.
These softwares are freewares and multiplatform so they are ideal for the daily use (in your office or simply at home). In particular XnView is a graphic reader and converter which can be used directly from an USB Key (yes, it’s possible to have a portable, complete graphic reader always with you!).
Please, don’t forget our specific Linux page with two, very interesting, new reviews about Elisa (a project to create a powerful media center for Linux) and about the Kubuntu package manager (to easily install new programs).
Last but not least, our special thanks (and review) to Tyberius who suggested us his good Windows Alt-Tab replacement: SmartTab (freeware, of course).
See you soon!
