Filed under

I want to wrap up this post by returning to what I said at the beginning about the Gnome Shell. What I have presented in this post are ways to configure and customize the Gnome Shell - but because of the modular way in which Gnome 3 is designed, it is also possible to replace the Gnome Shell entirely with something else which presents a completely different desktop and has completely different configuration and customization possibilities.

4 open source tools for Linux system monitoring

This article discusses some of the interactive command line interface (CLI) tools that are provided with or which can be easily installed on Red Hat related distributions including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, and other derivative distributions.
