Plank. The BEST dock you will ever use on Ubuntu!

I blogged about Docky a few years ago when I moved to Ubuntu from Windows as I needed something to replace Nexus dock, and later RocketDock, and I added it to a post about the best docks for Linux and Windows.

Introduction Docky is the dock to go to when using Ubuntu, it’s fast and it’s light, not to mention it’s free, it has two branches for development which I find to be a bit confusing!
One of the branches is stable but lacks features, and the other crashes often but is full with features.

What if there was a dock that had the best of both branches? Stable and fully featured? Meet Plank everyone!

مذكرات يوم إجازة

Disto hopping
I admit, distro hopping is something I am guilty of; you get to try many distros and interfaces very easily, and it is criticized for being counter productive and a total waste of time and resources, but that's not always the case, it's sometimes you need to take a step back to keep going forward.

Streets of Rage 5 Remake review and download

It's been ages since I last posted the game of the week segment! It's where I highlight an awesome free / open source game for the readers to enjoy.
Over the past few years I started gaming a lot less and focusing more on writing and other things, later I learned the hard way that all work and no play makes jack a dull boy! So gaming is back and by force!
