I’ve been using Drivel for the longest time but I’ve realized that there are other tools I could use for blogging. And here’s a short comparison of the three tools I’ve used.
I’ve heard about Drivel through friends who have been using LiveJournal and they use Drivel as their blogging client. It’s a really awesome client for LiveJournal because you could really choose which user icon to use, as well as select your privacy filter. Your custom filters are actually reflected in the choices. Aside from that you could choose which blog you’d be posting to. It …read more
I’m using Drivel, and sometimes Tomboy to post blog entries on my blog. They each have different purposes that’s why I use them both. Tomboy is very useful when it comes to posting something without graphics and really quickly. I have the tendency to use Tomboy when I need to take down notes during conferences and other such meetings and get-togethers because the outliner of Tomboy is really easy to use. Drivel, on the other hand, is richer in the way that I could format my blog entries as well as the fact that I could insert …read more
We all have different preferences so maybe this title seems to much of a bait. In any case, I’d still like to know what you think is the best dock for you. I personally am using Docker right now.
For me, Docker seems quick to load, light and simple. I like using Docker because it also acts like a system tray for me, especially because I want to see if my Dropbox is getting updated, what apps I am running that have icons on the tray. At the very least I am clued in.

Personally I find this question difficult to answer because I cannot generalize for the public. What would be the criteria for readiness? In the same manner, what kind of usage are we talking about? It’s that wide in variety that is why I don’t think it will ever be easy to define. Many comments have spawned from this blog entry: Don’t Get Me Wrong, Linux Sucks as Much as Windows. There are arguments that say that Linux is not ready for the desktop yet because of issues concerning hardware and drivers, installation issues, etc. There …read more
Why having a separate desktop environment on Linux rocks
It’s probably something cool or something alien to new Linux users: the separation of the operating system with the desktop. You might be thinking, sure, I could have a new look if I install StyleXP or LiteStep on Windows. But the thing is that it’s not quite the same. I used to think it was so cool that I could do that on Windows. It made my desktop distinct from the rest of my co-workers’. But it was at a cost. Litestep was running on top …read more
As an analyst, I work with data about people and their systems. One of these aspects involves usability. And even if I don’t use KDE and KDE apps much I still feel in awe of the Plasma project’s aim. User profiles are not easy to figure out and it does take time and much analysis.
Plasma is KDE’s way of making the ‘desktop’ a better user experience by letting users decide what ’shape’ it is. I think that KDE wants to empower its users by making the panel, the desktop and other components customizable in so many …read more
