View Full Version : Your daily routine on Linux

December 5th, 2010, 12:09 PM
As the title says, share with us the daily routine on your operating system.

Let me begin:

log in
start several programs: pidgin, rhythmbox, chromium, firefox and progress quest
then play The West, WestWars, ********* on firefox after browsing the forums
then play Transformice a bit on chromium
have a break, the come back browsing forums again
eventually talk to my friends on pidgin, play knetwalk, break something then fix it and maybe even read some stuff about linux, tips, tricks, tutorials, etc.
before I go sleep, I finish my activities on browser games, close all programs and shutdown ^^

It's your turn now.

Then I put on some music, and either browse the web with firefox or get my documents up in openoffice. Other stuff like games and music work is usually a special occasion.

Pretty simple for me.

- In
- Open Rhythmbox in my fourth workspace
- Play some music on Rhythmbox
- Open Firefox on first workspace
- Do some general browsing, maybe play some games. Maybe browse for some music if it's over the weekend.
- If I get bored, play some Warzone2100, usually later on in the day.
- Occasionally go on Empathy
- Out

I usually shut down my computer when I'm going outside, and then start it up again when I come back in.
