20 applications to improve Xubuntu

Filed under
Software

The main point of this article is that whilst the base install of Xubuntu 12.10 is fully functional it lacks the applications by default that would make it a really useful operating system.

So this is simply a list of 20 must have applications to improve Xubuntu 12.10. Of course this list is subjective to personal opinion so I invite people to add comments listing alternative applications.

The point of the article is to aid new Linux users by providing a good list of applications which they can install and use.

The list is in no particular order so number 1 is no more important than number 20.

The long-awaited Maru OS source release

Hey guys, I'm happy to announce that Maru has been fully open-sourced under The Maru OS Project! There are many reasons that led me to open-source Maru (https://blog.maruos.com/2016/02/11/maru-is-open-source/), but a particularly important one is expanding Maru's device support with the help of the community. If you'd like to help out with a device port (even just offering to test a new build helps a lot), let the community know on the device port planning list (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/maru-os-dev/YufKu...) . We currently have a few Nexus, LG, and Motorola builds being planned. If you don't see your device on there and would like to help with development or testing, please do chip in and we'll get it added to the list. Read more

KaOS Brings Serious Relevance Back to KDE

If you’ve been looking for a distribution to sway you back to the KDE desktop, look no further than KaOS. It’s beautiful, runs with the snap of a much lighter desktop, and feels as reliable as any other option available for Linux. I haven’t been this impressed with KDE for a very, very long time. And, I am certain users would find themselves equally happy to return to a desktop that has long needed a champion like KaOS. Read more
