3 FOSS PIM Apps, 3 Personality Quirks

Filed under
Software

New app choices have a habit of getting in the way of older favorites. Sometimes, a new approach or design can tempt you to give up one approach to solving a computing need by replacing it with another. That is the case with personal information manager (PIM) apps.

Open source software gives us Linux users lots of redundancy and choices. Applications in the PIM category are no exceptions. For example, not too long ago I reviewed two workhorse PIMs called "qToDo List" and "Tasque." See the review here. It was tough enough deciding which one to use regularly.

Sometimes calendar apps come fully loaded with information management features that go beyond basic calendaring tasks. This just stretches the choice-making even more. The Linux Sunbird Calendar app is a prime example. Even note-taking apps can provide many of the features found in full-fledged PIMs. Take, for instance, Basket Notes and Note Case Manager.

Three relatively new Linux apps could very well go head-to-head with these other apps in managing notes, appointments, research, reminders and more. Let's check out the Chandler Project's Note to Self Organizer, KOrganizers and Getting Things Gnome.

Though, the two most widely used and most popular server distros are CentOS and Ubuntu. This is the main dilemma among admins, both beginners and professionals. Having experience with both (and more) distros, we decided to do a comparison of CentOS and Ubuntu when used for a server. Read more
