Leftovers: Software (FBReader, NetworkManager, Opera)
If you’re looking for a EPUB viewer (reader) to use in your GNU/Linux operating system, FBReader is a great free application that you should try. It’s free and comes with a user interface that is easy to use.
FBReader however does not support the PDF format, except under the Android platform. I primarily use it to read the epub format, and officially it supports the epub, non-encrypted Mobi format (Amazon Kindle format), RTF & DOC (Microsoft Word Document format), while epub version 3 is partially supported.
Once I had NetworkManager installed, I decided it was easier to find, connect to and manage passwords of wireless networks using a graphical tool rather than digging through the copious output of commands run from my terminal and trying to keep track of the passwords. So long wireless.
Opera might work well, but it just isn't natural enough, not friendly enough. It also exists to monetize first, show web pages second, and somehow it shows through the pages. Sure, it's my personal impression, but if you were hoping for a white knight to champion your cause, Firefox is still the lesser of evils. It is also more customizable, and you still get a feeling it's not all about the dosh. At the end of the day, the wicked combination of somewhat weird, non-intuitive features, inability to tweak as you please, and the Linux software offering lagging a good few years behind Windows makes Opera a very hard sell. Not meant to be. It just does not feel right. That's all.
