Why do I care for Linux?

I don't care that much for other software. Linux is more than a kernel or an operating system. It is a symbol money does not rule everything. You don't pay for Linux. You don't have to watch ads when using it. In return, please be a little more friendly and tolerant to the people who build it. While Linux is built by professionals today, there is more heart and soul poured into it than in other operating systems.

predictive typing

You can try a software called typing booster on Fedora. It helps user while typing. User can avoid typing mistakes and also avoid typing long spellings. If you are on fedora or centOS use the following command:

yum install ibus-typing-booster -y

I hope this package is made available for debian as well.

Mobile wikipedia search plug-in

You must have used the wikipedia search plug-in for firefox. I have written a similar plug-in that will take you to mobile wikipedia page.

It is very fast, without images and looks good even on very small screens.

concise wikipedia extension

The user will select any word from the current webpage and choose "wikipedia Concise" on the right click. The selection will be submitted to the website
For e.g. if I have selected the word "obama" and searched using "wikipedia description", I will be directed to the site that will show me a few lines about Barack Obama.

The URL is menioned in the url tag and that looks something like this.

pretty easy, huh?
