Rhythm-e - Elementary Rhythmbox Is On Its Way!

Bricscad: .dwg Based CAD Software Available For Linux

Bricscad V10 for Linux was released earlier this month (the stable version) and is the first .dwg based CAD software available for Linux - according to its website, although VariCAD also has .dwg support (I'm not sure about the difference between "support" and "based" in this case though).

Make Ubuntu Look Like Mac OSX In Seconds Using Macbuntu

Although I am not a fan of copying an entire OS look (even though Ubuntu does some of it by default), I'm sure some of you want to get the entire Mac OSX look in Ubuntu. For that, you can use a script called Macbuntu which is very easy to use and can make your Ubuntu desktop look like Mac OSX in seconds.

How To Install TOR In Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat [Repository]

TOR was available in a PPA for Ubuntu which has been deleted. There is also an official TOR Ubuntu repository which unfortunately has also not been updated for Maverick, just like the repositories I mentioned above. But the Lucid packages work just fine - I'm running it on Maverick for a month now and everything works.

But the PPA has just been updated today and Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat users can finally install Nautilus Elementary from the PPA:

New Way To Get The New Official Ubuntu Font Family
