Moovida Melancholy

Filed under
Software

Before developers decided to make a (questionable in my opinion) turn for the 2.x series, Moovida was both an original and powerful media center. Sporting a somewhat unique UI, great Look & Feel design and a user friendly interface, Moovida easily fit as a full blown living room media center. All you had to do was connect your PC to a TV and a proper stereo and you were in for a treat. Unfortunately, that's all gone with 2.x series, a sad Banshee clone (which is not even supported for Linux anymore... yet, they say).

Anyways, despite this article title, let's avoid getting too melancholic here. After all, Moovida 1.09 is very much alive and available in many Linux distros repositories. In case you don't know about it or have never used it, I put together a quick video showing this really cool media center in action on my computer. As usual, the video is pretty good quality, so I recommend watching it at 720p resolution and full screen mode.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
