Blogging from the Linux desktop

Now that Gnome 2.26 is finally in Entropy i was looking at some stuff to highlight a bit.

Incase you missed it, Spritz got renamed to Sulfur this week. If you haven’t allready installed it yet, check it out! The idea behind it was to by default offer a less complex interface for the comfort of lesser experienced people out there. You can simply switch to the older interface with all the options by selecting the “Advanced Mode” from the Sulfur top menu.

One of the recent added programs to portage is “Choqok” I nice micro-blogging application thats well designed in Qt4. It has inituative tabs and lets you, on Twitter, Re-Tweet Favorite and reply easily.

Another nice application for the more intense blogging work i’ve found got very recently added to Portage. Bilbo Blogger.

This program offers you a rich text editor to write your blog and depending on the API that the blogsite provides, it even lets you add images easily. Setting up the account is done by simply dumping in the link to your blog and your credentials.

Meanwhile i can tell you that we are on schedule for the next comming Sabayon Linux G 4.2 release. If you allready have Sabayon 4 and keep it up2date using Entropy, there will be no need to install it. All the artwork related to it is rolling in Entropy as we speak. So when you are Entropy world updated a 4.2 will be visable when you startup your machine.

Last but not least, I came across a nice video about why Linux sucks. Check it out because its all true! (ok most of it)
