5 Awesome Linux Apps

Filed under
Software

Well, a lot of time has passed since my little article about the ten apps I immediately install onto a default Linux setup. And time in open source means evolution! I’ve switched to a few apps that really make my desktop experience more enjoyable because of speed, stability and beauty.

Let’s see what we got…

Banshee

I’ve always been an Amarok fanboy, then I switched to GTK+ and with it to Audacious. But it has never been the same. Banshee, which is now at version 1.0, has everything you need, and MORE. Podcasts, Internet radio, album artwork, it’s just liek Amarok, only in my opinion, better, prettier and simply the best player for GNOME out there. It has integrated iPod support too. Rhythmbox is just nothing compared to Banshee.

Opera

The OpenGL Speed & Performance-Per-Watt From The Radeon RX 480 To Radeon HD 4850/4870

With the Radeon RX 480 Linux review now being out of the way and our various other RX 480 Linux benchmarks, the latest results I have to share with being a benchmarking fanatic are RX 480 results with high-end AMD GPU tests of each generation going back to the Radeon HD 4850/4870 (RV770) days. This article has high-end GPUs from the RX 480 to RX 200, HD 7900, HD 6900, HD 6800, HD 5800, and HD 4800 series compared side-by-side with the latest open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver code. Not only is the raw performance being looked at but the system power consumption was also being polled in real-time for looking at the performance-per-Watt too. For any other benchmarking fanatics curious about the Radeon GPU evolution over the past eight years (RV770 launch in 2008), here are the numbers to enjoy. Read more
