Essential Utilities to Boost Productivity
Linux offers a vast collection of open source small utilities
that perform functions ranging from the obvious to the bizarre. It is
the quality and selection of these tools that help Linux stand out as
a productive environment. A good utility cooperates with other
applications, integrating seamlessly.
When referring to productivity tools, we do not mean the main
applications that you use. Enhancing productivity is concerned
with ways of helping an individual make more effective use
of their office suite, web browser, email client, design tools,
groupware applications, programming environments, etc.
Lean tools that focus on a single productivity enhancing
activity can make an enormous difference to the way time is spent.
Bloated, complex productivity tools tend to only slow you down, and
complex solutions require too much maintenance.
The applications featured in this article genuinely make a
real difference to boosting productivity, well at least in our
experience. All of these tools are very small utilities. All have one
outstanding attribute, they markedly improve getting the important
things done in life and work. Change the way you work by experimenting
with these indispensable open source utilities. Each of them saves
time, energy, and boost productivity.
To provide an insight into the quality of software that is
available, we have compiled a list of 7 productivity boosting
utilities. We are confident that each of these tools can dramatically
improve the way you use your Linux box.
Now, let's explore the 7 utilities at hand.
For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description
with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with
links to relevant resources and reviews.
