  For the person that craves the challenge of the Linux system - our goal in developing Linux software is NOT geared towards the 'Linux guru'  but for the "rest of us folks". Mainly the many of you that have gotten put off by the tactics that Microsoft has recently taken to (demonstrated by the release of Windows 10) or just has a desire to start the learning process of the fascinating world of GNU/ Linux.

So.. our Linux software development "plan for action" has two paths.

(1) to provide a GUI (graphical interface) for users that prefer this type interaction with the system for some apps that I've personally found a need for - in other words - the M$ Windows "point and click" concept of computing that a lot of us folks have grown accustom to and may prefer.

  • in the past years, Code-it Software has developed over 70 software applications for Windows. Some became very popular and most not so much. My goal is to take a look at the apps that were/ are popular and to see if there might be a need for a Linux version. If so then try to develop and release it. 

  • along the way I expect to find a void or two that I might be able to fill also. I know  of several now that need filled - just not sure if I'm the one that has the expertise to do it.

  • I realize that perusing this path will make me very unpopular with the die hard Linux users BUT the ultimate goal is just to help folks get switched over from Windows: these people will then possibly see the benefits of doing things the "Linux way". Not to be preachy but  remember - "You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.  

  • these apps will all be GNU -  the source code will readily be available for anyone to review and possibly learn from.

(2) to explain the concept, and provide useful examples of  Bash scripts. For those that don't know -  Bash scripting is one of the easiest types of scripting to learn, and is best compared to Windows Batch scripting. Bash is very flexible, and has many advanced features that you won't see in batch scripts.

  • however if you are a 'non-computer-savvy' person that won't mean a thing to you. Bash is the language that you will learn to love. You will soon learn that most things can be done through both GUI (Graphical User Interface) and the Terminal Command Line Interface, however some things are more easily achieved from one or the other. 

    • for example, changing file permissions of a folder and all its sub folders is more easily achieved using the Terminal Command Line Interface instead gui.

    • when you think about it - most everything that is programmed into a GUI is just a basic (or not so 'basic') set of Terminal command(s).

 

 

I expect to have MANY new Linux apps published (as well as some information content) on the site in the near future; therefore, think it best to group them for the sake of non-clutterization (if that's a word):

AUDIO/ TEXT 2 SPEECH APPS...

EDUCATIONAL APPS...

MISC APPS ...

SECURITY APPS...

LINUX COOL TRICKS...

TERMINAL BASH SRIPTING...
