Orage: Xfce calendar application

Filed under
Software

As we continue on with our travels down the Xfce path, I thought it would be smart to highlight the Xfce calendaring application Orage. This tool is not an “all in one” tool like Evolution, nor does it have all of the bells and whistles of the Mozilla Sunbird calendar. But what it does, it does well and does so without taking up tons of your resources or your desktop real estate.

In this article you will see how this calendar is used so you can continue making your decision if Xfce 4 is the desktop for you.

* Runs from notification area.
* Import/Export iCal files.
* Alarms.

SAS, Canonical turn silly over open source

Zemlin's job, in other words, isn't to convince companies to adopt open source, but rather to provide a home for the nurturing of open source projects, so they're worthy of adoption. Similarly, Canonical can focus on contributing code rather than spooking enterprises into adopting more. And SAS? Well, it should probably start with 40 percent open source adoption and grow from there. Read more

This Raspberry Pi-powered Linux computer packs a keyboard and display into a phone-sized case

What would you get if you crossed the $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W with a smartphone? You might end up with the Zero Terminal. The Zero Terminal is a homemade project by a maker known as Node, who has turned the Pi Zero W into a phone-sized computer with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen display.
