20 Ubuntu Apps For Daily Life

Filed under
Software
Ubuntu

Working from my Ubuntu desktop all day has given me an interesting perspective into what works and what doesn't when it comes to applications. In this article, I will offer you a roundup of software titles that enable me to make my day a more productive one. These applications range from productivity tools down to the Web-based tools that I use on my desktop.

1. Dropbox – While there are countless ways to connect your work with others on the Web, nothing allows me to collaborate as easily as Dropbox. From sharing documents to sending images for others to view, Dropbox allows me to share files and directories without putting my own computer onto the Web for the world to see. I love the fact that Dropbox offers compatibility with my Ubuntu desktop and Android phone. It also provided me with access on iOS, back when I was using an iPhone.

I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
