Moving to Wordpress

I have moved my blog to Wordpress at theunixgeek.wordpress.com . This doesn't mean, however, that I'll completely abandon Blogger. I'll post links to my posts from here, so I'll begin with today's posts:

Understading Linux Processes
The Current State of Linux Distributions

MacHeist 3 Apps

I decided to buy the MacHeist 3 bundle this year, and here's a list of the apps I got, with their respective ratings (out of 5):

  1. Scribbles *****
  2. iStock ***
  3. MiniOne Racing ***
  4. BabelBloX *****
  5. Typinator ***
  6. DEVONthink ****
  7. Hyperspaces **
  8. Overflow *****
  9. Fresh ****
  10. Webbla *
  11. iSale ** (registering this one is a pain)
  12. Picturesque *****
  13. SousChef *****
  14. World of Goo ***
  15. PhoneView (I don't have an iPhone)
  16. LittleSnapper ***
  17. Acorn *****
  18. Kinemac ****
  19. WireTap Studio *****
  20. BoinxTV *****
  21. The Hit List **** (still waiting for license)
  22. Espresso ***** (still waiting for license)
  23. Cro-Mag Rally ***
  24. Times ***** (awesome user interface, kudos to the developer)
  25. EventBox ***
  26. Big Bang Board Games *****
For only $39, this was a really good deal - all of the apps bought separately would have cost me well over $1000, and I like the "Buy 12, Take 26" plan!

Snow Leopard Will Be Seen at WWDC

Apple's Mac WWDC page gives it away that Snow Leopard and its technologies will take stage at WWDC. Quoting directly from the page,
Provide state-of-the-art media playback, capture, and manipulation of rich media with QuickTime X.
It is important to note that QuickTime X is a Snow Leopard (10.6)-only technology.
