Got tagged: Applications meme March 15, 2009

It’s been some time from my last post due to work load, and probably it would be even more if I was not tagged by Panagiotis.

I converted from GNU/Linux (see how politically correct I am?) to Mac OS X more than 2 years ago, so I have lost touch with the scene. However, I’ll give it a try. Unavoidably, this will be a post referring to the past.

  1. Which desktop manager do you use more often?
    I was using KDE since the very early days, after trying pretty much everything there was out there.
  2. Which desktop application you would not like to see implemented again on linux? And why?
    I wouldn’t like to see implemented again any application which does the same things as existing applications. The “I can do it better” attitude has a point only when there is real innovation involved. For a long time now, this has not been the case on the Linux desktop world. As an example of innovation, take a look at mobile devices such as the iPhone and now the Palm Pre. That kind of thinking out of the box is needed, and if someone’s planning to build equally innovative applications or interfaces, please do so.
  3. Which desktop application you definitely would like to see implemented on linux? Describe it briefly or point out to a similar application.
    Not sure if there are such things already, perhaps yes; In any case: Butler, Journler, Things.
  4. Write the name of the last project (not the very best, the last!) that made you wish to thank their developers so you can thank them now!
    Since this is about the last application, it will have to be a Mac OS X one: iCompta. Great little gem! I’ll have to donate at some point 🙂
  5. (Optional) Link the blogs of 1-3 people you’d like to take part to this meme. (no more than three). you can skip this question if you like.
    I want one more Mac OS X user in this. Let’s hear from Andy!
