Ubuntu 17.10: Finally, an exciting Ubuntu release by https://is.gd/ePcNMx

The days of the boring Ubuntu releases are over. The release of Ubuntu 17.10 was going to be the final iteration to include the ousted Unity desktop interface.

Never Miss an Email Again: Gmail Notification Extension for GNOME Shell by http://bit.ly/2qvWajl

Looking for an easy way to get Gmail notifications on the GNOME desktop? Well, you needn’t look any further.

The Gmail Message Tray GNOME Extension does exactly what you want: shows you notifications of emails in the GNOME message tray (aka ‘notification centre’ aka ‘date/time indicator’).

One of the main reasons I use a desktop email client such as Thunderbird or Geary is the ability to receive notifications on the desktop as and when new email arrives.
