Free: Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon", CSS Builder, PopFly

Here are today's freebies! A bit early today, don't you think? :)

Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon"

Ubuntu 7.10 'Gutsy Gibbon' With the amount of publicity on , how could I leave it out of today's freebies? (Well actually I could by not writing about it :) ) Ubuntu, if you're unaware, is a Linux-based operating system that can be installed in place of Windows or Mac OSX. Among the various Linux-based flavors available, Ubuntu is favored by new Linux users for its ease of use. But don't just take my word for it - check out . One of the nagging problems that still remains, though, is the support for popular games and certain proprietary programs on the Linux platform. But if you're causal computer user (surfing, email, instant messaging), check out Ubuntu if you're unwilling to pony up the cash for Windows Vista/Mac OSX.

CSS Builder

CSS Builder Ah, CSS, the bane of new web developers. Hopefully will be able to help those struggling with CSS (that includes me :) ), at least in the CSS selector department. Choose a selector or enter your own custom selector name, fill in your desired properties, hit "Build it" and you're done. Quick and easy... that is until you realize you need 50 more selectors to create your perfect website. :) Of course that's better than manually typing out all 50 selectors. :P


PopFly There is so much that can do, you'll be left wondering what it can't do. (Sorry, it can't make coffee yet.) Oops, I forgot to introduce what PopFly is all about. PopFly quite simply allows you to take a bit of this and some of that, mix them all up and call the creation your own (or what is popularly known as mashups). That means you could do neat stuff like show your dugg stories alongside your Flickr pictures as well as your Twitter messages. There are quite a few more but I bet that's not even the tip of the iceberg, as you could even manually edit mashups with (free). Of course, you don't need to be a programmer to use PopFly, because PopFly is targeted at everyday users as well. If you're interested, here are some things you should know about PopFly. PopFly is
