Mac OS X transformation pack is ready for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy/Linux Mint 16. This transformation pack has been completed with collaboration of haniahmed (One Gnome Shell theme) and mbossg (One Gtk theme + two icon sets) both guys did really fine job. Mac themes for Linux are almost stopped but we kept this project on our list from 12.04, and now we release Mac transformation for every new Ubuntu release.
Getting Amazon Prome, 4OD, Demand 5, or Google Play Movies to work on Ubuntu 13.10 requires a little bit of effort, but it can be done.
Konqueror a KDE all in one tool
You might have heard of the Konqueror Web browser, but many people overlook the fact that its an all in one app. What can this awesome program do? Well it can open almost any type of media you through at it. For example you may type a website at the top search bar and it will take you there. You can also look through your files by clicking on the home button. It will also open by default images and text files. You might get bothered by the small icons, this is easy to fix:
1. On the top bar, click on “View” and select “View properties”.
2. Click on “Show preview”, then under that select “All folders”. Then click on the check that says “Use these view properties as default.
3. Click Apply, and OK.
Konqueror has proven that tools that do everything are possible, make sure to add this app to your Linux machine.
We’ve seen Chromebook prices get cheaper and cheaper, but the majority opinion appears to remain the same: they’re nice laptops in theory, but they don’t cut it in the real world. Interesting, then, that Google’s marketing the new HP Chromebook 11 as the laptop “for everyone.” One thing that we think almost everyone can agree on: $279 for a well-designed, 11.6-inch notebook with a bright IPS display is a none-too-shabby deal. But, given the limitations of Chrome OS, is this actually a worthwhile purchase?
As you may have noticed computers are changing, and Linux is also changing with it. First example a few years ago the #1 operating system everywhere was Micro$oft’$ Window$, no other OS was accounted for or recognized. Now Android is the universal OS, and it has surpassed Window$. Also another thing that got popularity, was the (almost unknown) ARM processor. The ARM processor has revolutionized into the most used processor in the world. Almost all mobile devices have one. The incredible Raspberry Pi came to life with this ARM processor. Every month new tablets, and developer PCs are coming out, and they are all powered by Linux.
The future of Ubuntu
Ubuntu this year has made all the best announcements Ubuntu Touch OS, and Ubuntu Edge. The Ubuntu Touch OS is almost complete, and it will finally be a more flexible version of Linux on tablets and phones. The Ubuntu Edge, which failed, has not failed in gathering attention from the press. Press is exactly what we need for Ubuntu. Ubuntu has also taken more domination of the PC space by providing Alienware, Dell, and HP computers preinstalled with Ubuntu. China, Germany, and Spain are all making a change to Ubuntu. Ubuntu is the official OS of China. Ubuntu CDs are being given in Germany by the German Government. And these are only a few examples. Ubuntu is also doing very well in maturing Unity to a highly powerful (search everywhere) desktop environment.
PLEASE, SHARE, SPREAD THE WORD and let the whole world know that Lubuntu 14.04 is going to be an LTS Release :)
Google Updates Homepage With New Logo and App Launcher
Trying to make everything more streamlined Google has once again updated its Web Page, and it also adds an App launcher, which replaces the bar found at the top. Seems Google is looking more and more like Chrome OS.
