ruminations: On day 9 i tried my hand at KMail. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t overwhelming either.

Tip o' the Day: It’s nice to have GUIs available for when we just don’t feel like reading the fine manual. But other times, it’s much quicker and more satisfying to bang out a command and be done with it.

polishlinux: Listening to Internet Radios seems easy nowadays with the rampant powerful graphical environments of KDE and GNOME. One or two clicks and, bingo!
