Excellent Subtitle Editors Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 05 2014 @ 12:29 PM EDT
Contributed by: fk

A subtitle editor is a type of computer software that lets users create and edit subtitles. These subtitles are superimposed over, and synchronized with, video. Subtitles can literally make the difference between being immersed in a movie or only watching the screen, trying to keep up with developments. Good subtitling does not distract but actually enhances viewing pleasure, and even native speakers can find subtitles useful, not only where the individual is hearing-impaired.

Sunday, August 31 2014 @ 08:21 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

I have selected my pick of desktop environments that are excellent candidates for older hardware. They typically run well on low-spec machines, even a system with a Pentium II 266MHz CPU, a processor that is now 16 years old. All of the desktops are released under freely distributable licenses. If your Linux box feels sluggish in general use, try one of the desktops featured below. It may just save you from discarding a perfectly good machine.

Each of these open source applications are a long way from the finished article. The software featured here are not stable, not feature complete, and should not be used in a production environment.

The Best Lightweight Graphical Email Clients Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 02 2014 @ 03:37 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Email clients offer a variety of features. Many email clients offer a slew of features, some stick with just the basics. At the end of the day, what is important is that you find an email client that offers what you need, it is reliable, and works well on your computer. Thunderbird is widely regarded as an exceptional open source desktop email client, especially on Linux. It is highly customizable, has a rich set of features, and is geared for both novices and professional users. My only real disaffection with Thunderbird is that it can feel a bit sluggish on inexpensive hardware. If you are looking for an alternative first-rate graphical email client that works with limited system resources, you have come to the right place.
