3 reasons you never heard of linux


This article is based on my opinions, so don't treat it as solid facts, you be the judge of whatever you read, you decide what is best for you.

Why you never ever heard of Linux?


I moved to Linux three months ago, guess what??

RedNotebook 1.5.0 review

This is the Rednote Book IconHey hey guys
Today I will be reviewing a really good software to keep your journal ordered and organized, it's also a good way to practice writing and keep it consistent!!






It's Called RedNotebook, it helps you keep a daily journal but it can do much much more, make to do lists, use tags for frequent entries, and other features!


The software is open source and free of charge, you can download from their site on source forge size around 20 MB for Linux and Windows!

And I have written a post on how to backup the journal entries and transfer them. It's a must have if you install it and use it on daily basis!!

My verdict: It's a good solid software that anyone would need!

Cons: I wish it was more of a native style in writing, for example to end sentences you need to use "//", why can't it be a simple "."?

Thank you for reading, please comment on my post for any questions and I would love for you to join my blog.
