Why Netflix Doesn’t Run On Linux, And How You Can Get Around This

One of the most popular video streaming services is undoubtedly Netflix, because of its vast collection of movies and other video content which can be instantly streamed. Most people can enjoy it whenever they sign up for the monthly subscription. However, there’s the problem — most people can enjoy it. One of the few groups of people which are left out are Linux users. What’s the problem, and how can it be solved?

Watch All Your Videos & Music With Totem Movie Player [Linux]

Everyone likes a good media player, no matter what system they’re using. While I still highly recommend VLC media player as one of the best for any system because of its wide range of playable formats and open source nature, it certainly isn’t the only media player worthy of your time. In fact, most of the popular Linux distributions come with a very worthy media player which can play a decent amount of formats and is rather simple to use.

Edit System Menu Items With Alacarte [Linux]

When you think about it, our Linux desktop environments are pretty smart. Whereas Windows just creates a new folder for a newly installed program in the Start Menu, the Linux desktop environment automatically organize all installed applications into different categories. While this system can work very well, there are some packages that place shortcuts into categories which you deem to be incorrect. You may need to go into the menus and add/edit/remove items, but it can all be achieved using an application called Alacarte.

Virtually everyone, especially in first world countries, is on Facebook. Friends, events, pictures, and plenty more are all commonly found on Facebook unlike any other location.

Fed Up With Skype? Here Are 6 Of The Best Free Alternatives

Five years ago, if you would’ve asked me for recommendations on a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) program, there was only one program available: Skype. If for whatever reason you no longer want to use Skype, then rest assured in knowing that there are plenty of alternative programs out there. They may not be as polished or prevalent as Skype, but they certainly get the job done. And best of all, every program on this list is absolutely free!
