Recent Linux App Updates Round-Up

Recent Linux App Updates Round-Up - OMG! Ubuntu!

Rather than write about each of them individually we thought we’d round-up them up into one quick-fire, easy-to-digest post."


LibreOffice 5.3 to Launch with a Microsoft Office-like Ribbon UI

Image
As long as I can turn it off. I never really liked the ribbon bar much on Office. I like the logical non changing manner of the standard menu layout (probably same reason so many people liked the "Start" menu on Windows XP).

At this point, LibreOffice’s new Ribbon-inspired UI is still in the works, but it’s already available in experimental version 5.3 and anyone can see how it looks using the steps below.

The Microsoft Office ribbon was officially introduced in Office 2007 as a way to make working with the productivity suite easier. Microsoft called the new interface “Fluent UI,” grouping all toolbars into a single one with multiple tabs providing quick access to the essential features.

At this point, LibreOffice is undoubtedly the top freeware productivity suite on the market and the best alternative to Microsoft Office, as it’s being adopted not only by consumers but also by companies and organizations across the world that are seeking reduced costs without losing feature…

Everything You Need to Migrate Your Home Office to Linux

Windows 10 has been perhaps the most successful Windows ever. It’s faster, more feature-packed, and more secure.
But it’s a mixed bag. Microsoft is thirstier than ever for users’ private data, and it is acting more hands-on than ever before. They want to control what software you run, and when you run your updates. And at a fundamental level, it’s still Windows, and still especially vulnerable to viruses and malware.

Image
On the hunt for a desktop YouTube music player that works on Ubuntu (or another Linux distribution)?  Check out Kaku, which OMG! Ubuntu! reader PyGeek03 tipped us to via our mail bag. He writes: “…someone has created a new and fully-functional app for playing music from Youtube: Kaku. In fact, this app even has its own Numix icon! Beside features available with Atraci, there’s a list of Top Ranking tracks on the Home page, and a feature called Online DJ, which enable you to share what you’re listening with other people (I haven’t check this feature out yet). You can also choose whether to backup your data to Local or Dropbox in Settings. While the video is playing, you can view it in Fullscreen mode (which is more like Focused mode, because I can only switch to other running apps using Alt + Tab, but not Plank), TV mode (which enlarge the video to fill the whole window), cast to other device, or open the video in your default browser.” Kaku Features YouTube is possibly the single biggest on…

Linux Mint vs Ubuntu: Which Distro Should You Choose?

Ubuntu is the more well-known of the two distros, but Linux Mint is also one of the most popular out there. Both provide users with a great introduction to Linux.

So, the choice is yours.Linux Mint vs Ubuntu: Which Distro Should You Choose?

Is Linux Finally Good Enough to Replace Windows?

Image
According to data analytics company Net Market Share, Linux desktop usage has reached 2%. This is a first time achievement for the open source operating system. This number does not count Android as Linux. That suggests that more users are flocking to the traditional Linux desktop (or that a lower percentage are using others).


Does this mean Linux has reached a point where it can replace Windows and Mac OS X for the average user? As a native Windows user who switched to Linux several years ago, I’d say the answer is yes! Let me tell you why. Is Linux Finally Good Enough to Replace Windows?

Discover the range of industries, people and services that are using Ubuntu right now.
NetflixSnapchatDropboxUberTesla…and the International space station – what do they all have in common? They run on Ubuntu. To celebrate our upcoming 16.04 LTS we wanted to shine a bit of light on how many people in the world actually use Ubuntu. As users aren’t required to register their installation, devices are pre-loaded with the software and servers powered by Ubuntu – this means it’s not as easy to track users. However the reality is, hundreds of millions of  PCs, servers, devices, virtual machines, and containers have booted Ubuntu to date and are in use! Thanks to a blog Dustin Kirkland, a member of our Product team, wrote we’ve put together an infographic to show you where Ubuntu lives! About the author
