Deluge – An Awesome But Unappreciated Cross-Platform BitTorrent Client

,----[ Quote ]
| By now, most MakeUseOf readers should know 
| all about BitTorrent, the most popular peer-
| to-peer technology on the web. We’ve talked 
| about the protocol more than once, and even 
| released the Big Book of Bittorrent—a great 
| place to start if you find bittorrent too 
| confusing for your use.
| There are thousands of BitTorrent clients on 
| the market; that is, thousands of 
| applications you can use to download files 
| using BitTorrent technology. If you’re 
| curious which BitTorrent program is the 
| best, everyone has their own favorite – but 
| today, we’re going to profile what I believe 
| is an underappreciated piece of software: 
| Deluge.


(+) Best of Both Worlds: Windows Genealogy Programs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Luckily, most any of today's Linux 
| workstation products can run most any 
| Windows program, including all the common 
| genealogy programs (The Master Genealogist, 
| Legacy Family Tree, Ancestral Quest, Family 
| Tree Maker, etc.). Anyone who uses Linux 
| does not need to feel left out.
| Several Windows emulators or virtualization 
| products are available for Linux users. In 
| fact, WINE (which stands for "WINE Is Not an 
| Emulator) is very popular. WINE has the 
| advantage of running Windows programs 
| without purchasing a copy of Windows. WINE 
| is available free of charge at 
| http://www.winehq.org. 


Nautilus + CoverFlow = Awesome

A marvelous comic book archive viewer

,----[ Quote ]
| Many of us enjoyed comic books in our teen 
| years. Some of us have never outgrown them. 
| While some people read an issue and toss it 
| (or put it in a polypropylene bag to sell in 
| 20 years), others like to keep their art 
| archived and online. To help manage such 
| collections, Bradley Swartout has created 
| CBViewer, a program that lets you view 
| compressed comic book archives.

[News] Review of Windows Applications on GNU/Linux, Other Killer Applications for GNU/Linux
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Wine, Linux and Multimedia Software (Part 1) ,----[ Quote ] | Installing Ubuntu was easy, with all of my hardware being automatically | detected including my laser printer. I was immediately impressed with how | simple everything is to use. Some of the software that I used under | Windows is also available under Linux. Skype, FireFox, and OpenOffice are | three of my most frequently used applications, and the transition to Linux | for these applications was painless. However, there remained one | significant barrier to becoming productive under Linux. Unfortunately, the | developers of many of my favorite Windows software have decided not to | release a Linux version. Whilst there are Linux alternatives for many of | these applications (some of which, no doubt, are just as good or in fact | even better than what I had been using in the Windows world), this did not | alter the fact that I would need to learn how a large set of new software | worked. Do not get me wrong, I love experimenting with fresh software. But | to be faced with having to learn about so many new applications | simultaneously was a bit daunting. `---- http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/20090904192118400/WineMultimedia.html Creating Pseudo-3D Imagery with GIMP: Part 1 ,----[ Quote ] | Here again, I would stress that nothing beats a properly planned image, | that applies to all genres you can think of.
