20 Best GNOME Applications

Filed under
Reviews

After the overview of 20 best KDE applications, it’s time to have a look at what GNOME has to offer, right? This article overviews 20 of the GNOME applications which are, in my opinion, the best in their category. Only a single application from each category is included, and screenshots are attached. The list is put up in no particular order and at the end of the article I put noteworthy alternatives for each category (only GTK alternative applications).

Banshee – Music player (Homepage | Full review)
Not easy at all to choose from such a large variety of audio players for GNOME. At the end of the article I included not less than 8 alternatives for my choice, which is Banshee. Criticized by some for using Mono (I honestly don’t see any problems with it since it’s open-source), Banshee is a full-fledged music player and manager with features that include: media library, Internet services integration (Last.fm, Amazon MP3 Store), 10-band equalizer, playlists with configurable columns, ratings, tag editor, gapless playback, ReplayGain, bookmarks, cover art fetching, fullscreen mode, support for extensions.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
