Eagerly awaiting 2010

I don’t have many bookmarks, but I do have a few threads that I keep an eye on, for ideas about new software. This gargantuan thread in the Ubuntu forums was interesting for a while, but it has devolved into a list of Gnome-based software suites, which don’t interest me.

On the other hand, Archers are incorrigible speed freaks, and so the “light and fast awards” threads are great sources of ideas. Best of all, there has been one every year for the past four years — 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 — which means you’ll probably need a whole weekend to pick through all the suggestions there.

Add to that a small bonus — a thread that somehow involves Ubuntu, on the Arch forums. It seems a little oddball at first, but the ideas that are tacked on there are quite good.

In the meantime, I am eagerly awaiting the 2010 “light and fast awards,” so I can add still more ideas to my already-huge list of software to try. If you see it, send me a link. :mrgreen:

    They aren’t showing up in Google Reader for me. But when I view the article on your blog they show up fine.

    My apologies, Jacob is right–they show up fine here, but are missing in Google Reader. That’s a weird bug in and of itself, but I don’t think there’s anything you can do about it.

      Yes, I’m afraid that’s outside my control. I don’t use Google Reader, but my first suspicion is some sort of inconsistency between WordPress.com and G.R. But I like to blame things on WordPress.com, so I might be wrong. … 😉

    The links don’t seem to appear in HV3 either, for the record. Most likely a WordPress.com issue.
