How Linux can make me have a painful day

Filed under

Today at work (where i can’t use linux) i was asked to do a really easy and repetitive task: Take screenshots from an e-learning course and paste it with the content text on a text document. It sounds easy (not fun, just easy), well it wasn’t for several reasons:

1. Cntrl+Alt+$ARROW doesn’t go to any other desktop: there are no virtual desktops on windows, so you can’t change from one document to other just changing desktops, you need to search the application you need in the ones you have open.

2. A screenshot means a picture of the whole screen: You can’t take a screenshot from just the application you want, you need to shot the whole window and then edit the picture to just include the application you want.
