There is an article on TuxCards and KnowIt at Newsforge. The author seems to favor KnowIt...

Thanks for the URL. One quote: "The main difference between them is that KnowIt requires KDE. Tuxcards does not." That pretty much says it all for me. I don't like to be forced into KDE.

I agreed with most of what the article cited as strengths and weaknesses of Tuxcards.

I think this is a great idea - something I've thought about doing myself.


- You identified one (and by nature, others) when you asked for GIMP tips...perhaps an article on 'starting out with GIMP' and take us through some step by step on doing things with GIMP (or similarly complicated tools: Inkskape, Xara, etc.). The fact that you would be learning yourself provides you a great perspective from which to help/write.

- CLI/script tricks to automate tasks would be great/of interest too.

Look forward to reading!

I agree with 3L. You will be very comfortable on this topic and I think is really interesting to know how a simple text line can do a lot. How to automate things with bash is a nice topic. You should ask what kind of readers you will write to... system administrators? linux newbies? general user?, identify their problems and suggest a solution.
Good Luck!!

My idea for the Thunar article was approved. I'll let you know how it blows over.
