For this Friday's SLUG meeting we're doing a newbie oriented talk for the
second half of the meeting and SLUGlets will be where all the tech guru's
head for a chat on random stuff like coding and key signing etc.
It just occurred to me that we should get a run-down of some likely apps
to talk about, and if you really like maybe a 3-5 minute talk from you
about some of them.
For starters what apps do you tend to use the most?
Here's my top 10 list in order of use:-
xv (old, small image viewer)
OK so I'm a command-line junkie and I use it about 90% of the time. I
don't really use a lot of GUI apps for much. Pretty boring stuff. I
mentioned squirrelmail because although it's a webmail app many users
consider email an application itself no matter how it's accessed.
I would be happy to demo qfaxreader, and gnumeric.
