Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

In this video I show you the software alternatives and favorites that I’m using during my 30 Days of Linux Challenge. From video editing, media playback, screen recording, password management, we have it all covered. Find the perfect free or opensource software alternative for your computing needs.

  1. You can turn off these „System program problem detected“ notifications. This happens actually in every system, but if you are allowed to report them, they will pop up and bother you very often.
    Also, there is a office suite called FreeOffice 2016. You should try it also. It's not open source, it's some company's product, but it's free like its name suggests.

  2. For viewers: You don't have to type in terminal to install or remove things you can do the same for most stuff through the software center.

    For DasGeek: You should put the 30 days of linux into it's own playlist.

    But might be more to your liking, I'm a developer and my company has a lot of Excel files floating around and I can tell you they are my hell so don't share your enthusiasm for Excel macros:)
