Tiny Core Linux Is Your Smallest Choice For An Operating System

Linux’s capacity for configuration is exceptional — while it’s pretty known that you can configure it to however you like (such as with SUSE Studio), that capacity isn’t limited to just the selection of used software (ranging everywhere from the graphics stack to the desktop environment to the office suite). In fact, one of the great benefits of Linux’s flexible nature is that you can put the software on any computer imaginable, from high-powered supercomputers to netbooks to embedded systems such as aircraft entertainment systems.

Full-Featured vs. Basic Linux Code Editor: Eclipse and Geany Compared

If you’re someone who writes code regularly, it’s highly important that you use a code editor that you’re comfortable with. Under Linux, there is a large selection of editors to choose from, each one aimed at different types of programmers. Choosing just two editors to compare is really hard, but I chose my two favorites: Eclipse and Geany.

Ditch Qwerty & Type Faster With Workman

Ditch Qwerty & Type Faster With Workman

Before personal computers were invented, even before they made their appearance in science-fiction literature, the Qwerty keyboard layout was designed for use on typewriters. While the design considerations were solid, Qwerty wasn’t created for efficiency. We don’t use typewriters anymore (well, most of us don’t). And yet most of you will still be using Qwerty, the most popular keyboard layout in the world. It’s time for change; for a keyboard layout that’s fit for modern keyboards and modern computing. It’s time for the Workman Layout.

Access FTP Servers Using Your Native File Browser

While there are a huge number of good FTP clients out there, sometimes you can get by without installing any third-party software at all. An FTP client like those mentioned above makes sense if you’re an avid user, but you can avoid cluttering your system with another piece of software if you only need FTP access every now and then. Specialised FTP clients are stronger and more versatile, but the standard file browser on each of the three main operating systems can connect to FTP servers as well!

Which Linux File Browser Is More Productive: Nautilus or Dolphin?

Wsers of competing desktop environments will notice that they’re using different file managers — an important part of desktop productivity. Surprisingly, there are a lot of things that can go right or wrong with a file manager, so these applications do a lot more than simply show where your files are. I compared Nautilus, Gnome’s default file manager, with Dolphin, KDE’s default file manager, to see which one is the easiest to use and which one is the best for productivity.
