My Linux desktop at home has lots of applications installed on it because, well, I like gadgets. In my private life. Work is a different matter.
This post was inspired by my forgetting what the title app was called. Now I have somewhere to look when I forget again.
At work I really don’t need, or want, photo gallery managers and Internet radio players. Because my company uses a newer version of MS Exchange, I also won’t be reading my corporate e-mail on Linux (Evolution hasn’t been any good at interoperating with Exchange since at best, 2003).
So right away I have to rip out shotwell, rhythmbox and evolution.
For a simple audio app to replace rhythmbox I like the decibel audio player.
As an alternative to shotwell, I’ve found that the venerable gthumb viewer does a fine job.
Corporate mail? Well, that’s why I keep Windows on my company laptop.
