Software reviews
Software Score
kompozer
"Great tool! Just it does crash from time to time and especially, when using tables. So if you know how to treat tables with HTML Kompozer is the correct application for you!"
4
libaudio-dev
"This lib is certainly useful, but I did experience lots of upward compability problems. So it was till now lots of stress to use this lib .... "
2
quisk
"Quisk is nice. However, it seem to be not straight forward and adding special devices requieres some time. "
4
wine
"Almost exelent tool. Safes people from using real MS Windows OS. However, not all Windows programs are running with WINE. After all it is only an emulation."
4
nano
"linux does not mean nano. But nano is a super great tool. It is made for people who dislike vi(m) and still won't like to deal with gedit!"
5
tuxmath
"I am training a little dude some math. He was at a point of no further interest in math! Now TUXMATH made it happen. He's back and havin fun with math (-:"
5
me-tv
"It looks great to me! Then again the problem that there are little transmitter signal in my region is my slef made problem. So I can confirm that the software works with LM Olivia and a Terratec DVB-T doodle (RTL2832U & Elonics E4000)."

navit
"It works for some time. Yes it is using openstreetmaps and yes it is very flexible. However, when zooming in and out my LM crashes. That is a clear drawback )-:"

supertux
"love it ... makes adicted ... simple game 4 young and old"

openyahtzee
"yep, you want to kill time play this game"

scribus
"I was looking for a greeting card software like MS-Publisher from the old days. Scribus looks nice editing program. Gonna use it later for other applications then greeting cards. Perhaps one could do a poster with it. ..."

k3b
"I use this tool since many yrs on various linux distros. It's a must to have. Very useful!!!"
5
asunder
"It rocks 2! People claim it's better then sound-juicer ... can't see the difference yet. But it works after just an installation on the fly. great! love it!"
5
sound-juicer
"That is just the tool one needs in between your Audio-CD and the MP3 player. Needed it - loved it - can promote it!!!"
5
audacity
"Nice tool. A little too complex and yes the GUI could be better. Runs on many OS and platforms and one can quickly make some noise. For more one has to RTFM and that's where the fun part ends. But I can recomment it!"
4
calibre
"Hmmm, that destroyed my carefully set up plan to buy a tablet-pc or some of those ebook reader devices! I like this ebook reader. Gonna try to get a grip on several 1000 scientific papers in my data-base with this tool. Then again. One might want to know how that is possible with this tool. Would need a ctrl-A ... import ... covert ... AND don't re-write the stuff and waste lots of disc space ... lets see if it does that. If so I might want to write a tutorial ..."

warsow
"it kept me for 20 minutes busy and then I lost my interest. Playing it on a netbook is not the kick, I guess ..."

freecol
"This game looks nice in the preview (journal) but does not run on my acer netbook with LM Helena => that makes it useless for me )-:"
1
glest
"Certainly the game is working, but I find the handling not good solved. Also it seems that as a newbe one has to find instructions from elsewhere then the game. I find it too complex to start up with and have fun within minutes. Since I can not affort to play all day long this game is nothing for people who just want to play for just a moment and turn back to more urgent matters then gaming."

achilles
"O.k. I believe one can just watch this simulation. Also I found the following explaination what the tool is doing:"Achilles is an evolution simulation based on Larry Yaeger's PolyWorld. It uses Hebbian neural networks, and an extremely simplified physical model that allows virtual organisms to interact freely in a simulated environment. Achilles was designed and compiled originally on Linux, but it is completely composed of portable C++ code and uses only portable libs such as SDL and OpenGL, therefore it should be trivial to port. All that is needed is hardware to compile on. Any porting efforts that are in progress or successful are welcome to contribute patches back to the main source tree. What do the colors mean? The organism colors: The brighter red, the more aggressive The brighter blue, the more likely to mate Yellow indicates `dead' organisms, or sources of food The spikes that flash between the organisms: Red means attack Blue means mate Yellow means feeding The organisms are given the color of surrounding organisms as an input to the neural network. This emulates 'vision'. Size is an attribute of the genetic algorithms and thus each organism obtains its dimensions from its parents. Requirements: · an OpenGL implementation · GLU and GLUT · Simple Directmedia Layer""

planets
"Nice toy! The controls are very simple and perhaps not user friendly. But it is fun to play with gravity for some time. From the point of learning some physics one has to say that it is not more than a nice to play with tool. But playing is important for learning. So over all I like it!"

fotowall
"installing it on LM is not straight forward ... is no good -> means no good!"
2
gnome-sudoku
"a good way to train the brain and kill some time (-;"
4
vlc
"It works right on the spot with abitory choosen formats ... not bad for a media player!"
5
pingus
"I loved lemmings and tuxes are great, too --> It is a classic fun game ... btw: it is working fine, even on my netbook (-:"
5
freeciv-client-gtk
"Great game - time consuming and challenging strategy game - can recomment it"
5
thunderbird
"It's the mail client I choosed to use after plenty of trying. Certainly, there is space for improvements, e.g. import function for appointments from MS-Office Outview. If you are forced to use at work Microsoft software, it would be nice to synchronize some of your data, such as appointments with the clients of different OSs at home. Since Thunderbird is lightweight and works fine it is a real improvement for people who have a slow/instable internet connection (e.g. mobile internet in Germany). Why then not 'awesome' for Thunderbird? It is not straight forward to set it up to connect to any possible provider. There are thinks to know (e.g. different ports) if you wish to use instead of a google mail account your webmail account from the local provider. It's a jungle and there are no good man pages for Thunderbird on this matter."

wesnoth
"It's a nice game and one can kill time with it. I won't erase it from my disc but it is not my most favorit game. It is a challenging game and one can find situations for strategical moves. Then again playing the game on a netbook is not the best choice and it is poor that the game is not adjusting to the screen size. ..."
3
gimp
"Some people reject GIMP! I HAVE ABSOLUTE NO IDEA WHY!!! GIMP is one of the very best image processing programs. Now consider that this software is open source and you can do most of the stuff you wish to do with an image processing program. If you need more than GIMP can offer you must be professional and need to invest lots of money for little more. For the rest of all users GIMP is the best you can install on your machine."
5
skype
"A most to have! Skype is connecting people and is a powerful visual communication tool. If one is using it the right way one can make a great benefit out of it and for no fees included. However, some services are indeed not free of charge but they are worse the money. If you don't have it and use it try it."

mc
"nice to have - I almost never use this tool - reminds to Norton Commander and for those how loved to use NC this will be of great help"

cheese
"pretty need tool - nice to have!"
4
scilab
"The other good MatLab clone there is. The community is active but still too small for quick developments. Then again it is very stable and there is a somewhat working MatLab code converter! Conclusion: nice to have and save to use."
5
octave3.2
"One of the good MatLab clones. Great tool for scientific applications. One has to mention that some releases do differ in syntax or even some commands drop out for some releases only to appear much later again."
5
lynx
"Its good to have a text based browser in case you find yourself in troubles with X applications. Yes, it is good to have, same as it is good to have vim for a quick job on a script. Lynx is beating in terms of speed and basic internet requirements. Defently, it has its drawbacks based on the handling, but again this is only a question of experience with the application!"

gpredict
"It is a great tool if you wish to monitor satellite tracks and forcaste or post process satellite conjunctions"
5
dreamchess
"nice chess simulator. keeps you entertained and you may choose from different levels the one you wish to play without being slaughtered right away or that the simulator is a poor victim. Can recomment it!"
5
gunroar
"Keeps you a minute or two asking what is coming next and then you wish you'd taken another game to entertain yourself. I would not recommendate it to download. But then again if you are a fan of pressing a fire button and do mechanical movements it might be fun."

aisleriot
"It's only a solitair game. Indeed it does look like a windows game. All that does not make it a bad game. But I do win too often and that is not happening often on my pda or phone. I am afraid it is too easy. What a pitty!"
