Yes, an excellent program for photography folk.
Darktable, Gimp and Nathive are the ones i use.
Krita is pretty good if you need it for drawing and the like.
I have to confess I have not yet heard of Darktable. It might be worth me checking out. Nice.
Krita, well. That was one of the worst pieces of imaging crap I have ever used. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is serious about image manipulation in any form.
So that's the skeleton of it, if anyone's interested in improving it that would be much appreciated.
Excellent job IKT.
So one does just simply walk into a Linux wiki!
Came across "nethogs" today.
Net top tool grouping bandwidth per process
m cycle between display modes (kb/s, kb, b, mb)
r sort by 'received'
s sort by 'sent'
Handy tool when working from a terminal.
We've had dropbox, sparkleshare, sugarsync, owncloud.
Here's another ... Seafile
They're also working on an Android client.
We're putting in OwnCloud at work as a replacement to an FTP server that got put in somewhere around the birth of Christ. This one looks pretty neat too.
Android clients don't fuss me so much as long as they use HTML5 and a decent mobile CSS, then generally that does away with the need for an "app" (I also realise most "apps" these days are just custom HTML5 pages bundled with an icon).
If anyone is looking for anything to read, I came across these lately and plan to read them when I have the time:
Why game devs prefer windows
Computer Science from the Buttom Up
Sorry if either are reposts.
started using meld this week, diff gui on roids, i like it
Great tool. I even got a KDE-loving, GTK-hating, xdiff fanatic converted to meld the other day. It's that good.

I'm a complete Linux noob. I'm looking for a Linux distro which would be best suited for the following...
Need to be able to remote into it from Windows 7 PC.
Be able to bridge/share an internet connection from wireless network to a local network.
Is this something Ubuntu can do?
Start a thread when you want to set it up...
I've only really skimmed this thread (will read in detail when I can), but already some of the stuff has been eye-opening, i.e. how Linux handles drivers etc.
Makes Windows look like a complete shitheap in comparison (although I have been in slight denial about Linux being better than Windows )
Thanks - ended up grabbing an ISO and running it live from CD. Did the trick sharing the connection, but forced me to use a different IP range for my local Ethernet network(10.41.0.1) not a big deal but I think I might rethink what I need to accomplish here, haha.
I know this is an old thread but it's stickied and I think that justifies my post.
This is absolutely brilliant, elvis! Thank you.
tbh, i find a mixture of both CLI and GUI to be best.
Really it comes down to the task that you're doing.
I'm no expert as I've only just started messing around with linux but I'm keen on learning how to use the CLI more than anything else. From what I can gather, it's faster, more efficient, and allows you more control over movement and manipulation. That said, I'll probably stick with Ubuntu for a while (or Xubuntu) because a) I have the choice to go with GUI or CLI, and b) the community is pretty amazing.
I agree - often, if I have the choice between CLI & GUI I will use the former.
Sometimes that's to learn, but mostly it makes me feel that I'm in control and know what I'm doing.
The amount of Googling I need to do to fix up what I've just stuffed up means that I'm usually not in control and actually have NFI
These "learning experiences" are slowly reducing
