software development and life.


Apple software

While there is a lot software for the Mac which is also available for Linux, there are some applications which are not. For example P2P-applications. Using Linux, I mainly used dc-gui (the former name of Valknut). While this tool is available for the Mac, I couldn’t connect to the Hub I used to use (probably due to the fact that my password doesn’t work anymore) so this software was not very usable.
Then I read about XFactor, which appearantly was a very nice program, making Windows users jealous. So I gave it a try, and I must say that it work pretty good. It is open source and based on GiFT (for which I never found a good frontend for Linux (especially Gnome)). Screenshots are on the site of the project. I don’t post one here because it looks the same as the screenshots on the site of the project.
