Software Gadgets Returns in 2008

It's been several months since Software Gadgets had regular updates. There have been several reasons for this:
1) Serious illness in the family. My wife has been diagnosed with oral cancer. Dealing with this has (and still is) taking time and energy. However, things are finally moving and the situation is improving.
2) I switched my computer from Windows XP as the primary OS (running Ubuntu in a VMWare virtual machine) to Ubuntu as the primary OS (Running XP in Virtualbox seamless mode). This means I am trying fewer Windows programs and more Linux programs.
3) I admit it, laziness.
I've made a new year's resolution to get myself in gear and update Software Gadgets more frequently and regularly. As a sign of new life I've selected a new theme for this site and upgraded to the latest version of Wordpress. New posts should start to trickle in as well. While Windows software will still be covered, you will see more Linux software as well as Ubuntu has become my primary OS (no Vista in my system's future, sorry Microsoft but everything I've seen shows Vista to be slow and clumsy).
Here's a screenshot of my system running Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) and Windows XP at the same time on the same desktop thanks to ViritualBox's seamless mode. (You can click on the image to see the screenshot full size).
