Tomahawk : the Swiss Army Knife of Music Players

After a quiet year, Tomahawk, the Swiss Army knife of music players, is back with a brand new release to sing about. The latest release of Tomahawk, version 0.8 is available for Linux, OS X, Windows and a beta app for Android. I have to say, Tomahawk is hands down the most beautiful music player I have used. 

"A new kind of music player that invites all your streams, downloads, cloud music storage, playlists, radio stations and friends to the same party. It's about time they all mingle."

You can add your favourite music subscription services, music promotion platforms, networked libraries, cloud storage, music data providers, social networks and more.

Some of it's features are :

  • Connect to Music sources and services : Beats Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, SoundCloud,, Rdio, Billboard, iTunes, Jamendo and many more.
  • Get Social : Connect to friends to browse and play their libraries, playlists, stations, or just listen along what they are playing. See and hear the loved tracks and recently played tracks across your network.
  • NotificationsNow Playing notifications (OS X & Windows) - support for OS-level notification systems (e.g. Notification Center) with fallback to its own native notification system
  • Networking / ConnectivityIPv6 Support to make directly connecting to your other computers and networks much easier and more reliable.
  • Interoperability You and your music influencers may have similar tastes in music, but not necessarily the same music services and sources. With Tomahawk its easier to find and listen to the songs others shared from the music service of your choice.
  • Aggregation : No more searching the songs you love across the web and multiple apps. Bring them together in one place with Tomahawk.

Tomahawk is totally free and open-source. If you are interested in joining the team, adding new features, writing plug-ins or contributing in any possible way click the link below.

Gnome Extensions I Use To Enhance My Desktop Usage

I am currently running Fedora 22 with Gnome 3.16 . One of the best features of GNOME are shell extensions. These extensions bring all sorts of handy features to GNOME. Installing and using GNOME extensions couldn't be any simpler. Simply browse over and look for the extension that appeals to you. Click the switch from Off to On, and immediately you're prompted to install it. That's it.

Here are the extensions that I use to personalize my Fedora 22 experience and maximize my performance. Hopefully they can make you enjoy your Gnome Desktop experience.

Meet elementary OS Freya : A fast, lightweight and beautiful replacement for OS X and Windows

My favorite Linux distribution - elementary OS has released a new stable version named elementary OS Freya. After being under development for a 1 year and a half, its finally here and it’s now even more polished, clean, beautiful with great new features and three new default apps.

elementary OS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and the latest release Freya is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Being based on Ubuntu doesn't mean that elementary OS is just a skinned version of Ubuntu. It features it's own shell named Pantheon Shell and comes with its own set of custom apps and many unique features. One of ther perks of being based on Ubuntu is that elementary OS users can benefit from the large number of repositories and apps available on Ubuntu platform.
According to elementary OS team, their previous release named elementary Luna (released on August 2013) was downloaded more than 3 million times and the interesting fact is that, 60% of those downloads were from non- free OSes. …
