I have decided that it would be beneficial for all of us to learn more about the applications that we have as part of our Ubuntu / Kubuntu systems. I have primarily focused on general tutorials, although primarily pointed at the Ubuntu gnome community (as that is the desktop I am using), but I would like to be able to expand that. I would like to hear from you on what applications you would like to know more about, what applications you develop and want to bring attention to, etc.
If you are a package maintainer for an application available within the Ubuntu repositories (main restricted universe or multiverse) and would like more people to be aware of your project please let me know. I would accept short writeups along the following outline:
Basic Package Features
Features you're particularly proud of
The best thing about the open source community that we’re all a part of is that we have access to packages and programs from developers around the world. Everything from text editors to games, browser extensions to system monitoring applications. It’s a worldwide community of free software and I’m sure there is a whole list of applications that most of us don’t even know about. Lets share the knowledge. Education is the key for us in our continued growth.
I hope to hear some application requests from some of you and I’d love to see some package outlines from others. I’ll try to do an application outline roughly once per week.
