When you can’t decide what you like, choose Linux!

I have used Linux off and on for 4 or 5 years. I finally did the big switch from OS X last year. I have many reasons why I have been attracted to it.  Open Source, free, comes with tons of applications that are also free. But, the biggest thing that I must have in an operating system is customization… Continue reading “When you can’t decide what you like, choose Linux!”

PinguyOS Screenshots

Late last year I read about a new Ubuntu derivative called PinguyOS. I was on the hunt for a nice looking, easy to learn Linux distro to replace OSX on my Macbook Pro. I have played with many different ‘easy’ Linux installs in the past, including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora Core, PCLinuxOS, and PuppyLinux.
I wanted to share some screenshots of  my install with you. It is very OSX like, and that is probably why I was attracted to it…

Using Remember the Milk in Linux

I love Remember the Milk as you may be aware! I use it all the time. At work, home, on my iPhone. Everywhere. I have written a few posts about my GTD journey and ultimate decision to use Remember the Milk as my GTD solution. I have also been transitioning my personal computer to Linux the last few months. I decided on an Ubuntu based OS called PinguyOS. So, I got quite excited to read the following article on how to integrate Remember the Milk into Linux! Here is an excerpt from the post. Coming from the Mac and using Quicksilver, I love that PinguyOS has Gnome Do running out of the box. I absolutely love the Gnome Do RTM plug in! I am installing and playing with it as you read this…

There are great ways to integrate the services of RememberTheMilk with Linux, here we’ll see some:

THUNDERBIRD/LIGHTING

Remember the milk can export the events in ical format, it’s possible to take an ical address just for a list of task or all of them and set in lighting a new net calendar, just select the ics format and give the url you have copyed from the RTM site, and you’ll see the tasks with due dates integrated in your calendar.

Check also the official guide.

GNOME DO

Remember The Milk plugin for Gnome Do indexes the tasks which are stored in your Remember The Milk account. It also allows you to perform basic actions like creating or deleting a task, as well as some advanced operations related to task lists, tags and locations. It requires an available Remember The Milk account and needs to be authorized to access the data.
