Nowadays, I stored most of my files on cloud storage service starting from Dropbox, Google Drive and even OneDrive. The problem is most of these applications don’t provide a Linux version. Dropbox provides a Linux version but it is nowhere near as easy to install as the Windows version. Even the installation guide on Dropbox page is quite unclear. I combined some various tutorials on the internet to create this complete how to install Dropbox on Linux. More…

Most of our computers today have 64 bit support capability and surely we want to utilize it to make use of those extra GB of RAM. Even with my deep love of beautiful Linux desktops, I can’t deny that I still need to use Microsoft Office.
