nixCraft: 30 Cool Open Source Software I Discovered in 2013
« on: January 12, 2014, 11:47:01 PM »
NixCraft is one of my favorite general Linux "how the heck can I do..." sites, but this post really impressed me.  30 great softwares that you haven't heard of a million times already.  These guys do know how to pick 'em...

Good list indeed!  :Thmbsup: Here I thought I had seen almost everything when along comes Artica to remind me there are things I'm interested in that can still manage to sneak under my radar screen. Just one more reason to love the nix universe AFAIC. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I had only heard of 5 things on that entire list.  Much better than yet another re-hash of software we've all been told about a billion times, like LibreOffice, GnuCash or Super TuxKart.  :-\

Back on topic though, InfoWorld has the Bossie awards for 2013, and it's packed with mostly enterprise-level stuff, not a whole lot for the average user, but interesting to know that open-source software is making it's way to the glass tower set:

Definitely things here I hadn't heard of.

Thanks for posting :)



I got the impression that Miro Video Converter seems to be available for Windows and Mac OS X but not any other *NIX...does that seem correct?
