Apps with Software Center

Today is the day… To get into Ubuntu software center and install couple of apps. Based on my personal experience the software center is quite good thing, however for new user it’s might be a little difficult to learn about open source software alternatives for apps they used previously. But google search – helps a lot. So in the end it is nothing but pleasure.

Here we go
First of all I have one problem – I sleep soundly. Even if in nearest neighbourhood an earthquake occurred, it wouldn’t disturb me even a bit. So the usual case is that – in order to wake up at 6 a.m. I need couple of loud alarm clocks around. One of them can be found in software center –¬†Alarm clock applet.

The App is just amazing. Easy, Simple, straight forward and what most important is reliable. What else you need to ensure that you’ll wake up in time?


Numero deux
Well, if you want to succeed in life – waking up in time is not the only thing you need to ensure. So called “To Do” list is what each and every busy person should have, otherwise anarchy and chaos in task management might simply ruin your life. For that purpose one of the best apps in software center is ‘Nitro’
It has not only a GUI client, but also can be assessed through browser as a web app. As many other linux apps it keeps that simplicity that I like so much – nothing extra – just exactly what you need to accomplish your goals.
Easy to use, easy to set up and order items in the list. It has search box as well in case you are very lazy person and list will expand insanely over the time.

Numero trois
And finally just to stay busy – we need an IDE. There are plenty, but at that time I’ll go with Eclipse.
Installation is nice and easy for all the apps, it takes literally seconds for package manager to resolve dependencies and download app. And you know what? – linux doesn’t ask you for reboots when you installing or deleting something as windows does it.

Anyway, after downloading goes usual procedure – define working directory and create your new awesome project. That’s pretty much it – there is nothing else to tell, since the software center is so nice and easy to use. Hope you’ll enjoy. Over and out.
