A Dozen Apps for Ubuntu Users

Ubuntu Logo

I am a big fan of wubi. No other distro but Ubuntu supports installing a linux OS inside windows. So I find myself shift+delete-ing Ubuntu installation once a new one arrives. Over the years, I’ve narrowed down a dozen apps I find installing immediately after the OS itself. This post introduces my favorite (and useful) dozen.

Design — Calendar 2009

I know.

I know that it is too late to design a 2009 Calendar. I am looking at the 2008 tabletop calendar that is faded a little bit and has a lot of scribbling – my reminders of various tasks. I was thinking “Well, so far nobody has given me a 2009 calendar. Can I make one myself?” The result: I designed one yesterday and it appears to be nice. So I thought of sharing it with you.

I started the design as a tabletop calendar. Two sheets can be printed on a single A4 sheet. I can make a tabletop calendar with six such sheets and some cellophane tape. Or, I can stick it on to the wall or partition of your cubicle in my workplace.  Later I manipulated the pixel ratio such that anyone can use these images as their computer desktop wallpaper. At the moment only 1920X1200 pixel ratio (widescreen) is available for download.

Let us see what went behind the design. I will try to answer your immediate and obvious questions.
