Top 5 Torrent Clients for Linux

with 45 comments

UPDATE: The article was moved (and updated). For the new location of the list please click here 

Here is a list with the most used torrent clients for Linux.

I’m just sharing, I don’t profess to be an expert. Anyway, I hope this list will be of help to you in choosing a better torrent client.

GIMP 2.6 released!

leave a comment »

GIMP 2.6 is an important release from a development point of view. It features changes to the user interface addressing some often received complaints, and a tentative integration of GEGL, the graph based image processing library that will eventually bring high bit-depth and non-destructive editing to GIMP.

Read all the announce on GIMP 2.6 Release Note.

GIMP 2.6 can be downloaded from here.
