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
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.
changing file permissions of a folder and all its sub folders is
more easily achieved using the Terminal Command Line Interface
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):
