After seeing a screenshot on the desktop tour in the Ubuntu web site, I noticed something interesting… A screenshot showed some icons for Google Apps in the Add/Remove application. I thought to myself, “How can this be?”
After upgrading to Hardy Heron, I wanted to find out, so I headed to the Add/Remove application under “Applications” > “Add/Remove” and searched for “google.” Several applications came up. A Gmail checker, some other random applications, and then… Jackpot!
Those who have followed my blog already know my liking of web-based applications. From just about all the Google services to ThinkFree Office, I have been using many applications. This has allowed me to test many systems on my laptop, without having to worry about unsaved documents or pictures being lost forever.
