  • Qt Mail Client Trojitá 0.6 Released
  • N1 Email Client -- A User-Friendly Option

    If you’ve paid close enough attention to the news, you know that the Mozilla Foundation has cut the cord to Thunderbird. Considering that, for years, Thunderbird has been the most user-friendly desktop email client for Linux, this could have been a disaster for the open source platform.

    Bradley White from the upstream CCTZ team prepared some more changes in CCTZ itself -- so a new RcppCCTZ version got to CRAN the other day catching up with these changes.

  • Picard brings order to your music library

    Two ways to sort your music are either by the lookup method or the scanning method. The lookup method will check the existing metadata saved to the song file and compare that to the MusicBrainz database. This is usually a foolproof way to find data for a song. The scanning method will use an acoustic “fingerprint” of the song based on wavelengths and other miscellaneous sound-oriented factors of the song. It will compare the fingerprint to the existing MusicBrainz database for a match. This is the most accurate method to use, but it will not work out of the box in Fedora. There is an easy workaround to get scanning to work, however.

  • 4 tools to play Windows Games on Linux?

    Linux operating systems gives the stability that Windows platform somewhere fails to deliver. But what about gaming? Can we compare Windows and Linux on gaming front? I don't think it will be a fare game to compare both on this aspect. Users who want to go with gaming will rarely use Linux and users who are comfortable with Linux operations will rarely go for Windows. Both are big competitors to each other and both have respective pros and cons.
