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. More Ubuntu-related web content exists due to the size of its community, which is a big help when you’re starting off. But much of what applies to Ubuntu also applies toMint.
XvoiceXvoice Project on Sourceforge Xvoice-sphinx project Xvoice CVS repository Frequently Asked Questions SourceForge documentation Mailing listsXvoice enables continuous speech dictation and speech control of most X applications. To convert users' speech into text it uses the IBM ViaVoice speech recognition engine, which is distributed separately (see below). When in dictation mode Xvoice passes this text directly to the currently focused X application. When in command mode, Xvoice matches the speech with predefined, user-modifieable, key sequences or commands.

The United GNOME theme, partly inspired by the design direction of Canonical’s scrapped Unity 8 desktop, has picked up a few fixes and flourishes that fans of theme will want to know about.
Rounded window covers and more subtle drop shadows Most of the changes (rather notably) see the theme adhere to the actual styling of Unity 8 and Ubuntu Phone/Tablet, including colour hints. The angular window borders are gone; the outline toggle switches are gone; the bizarre purple buttons are gone. If you used (or still use) Ubuntu Touch or any Ubuntu Touch apps a lot of the widgets, switches and stylings will seem super familiar. The Unity 8/Suru colour palette is also more prominent in this version of the theme. The overall look is one that’s a compelling alternative amidst the dominance of Arc and Adapta, the latter being the basis of the Pop GTK theme. Download Uni…
