Open Source Party by powerofpi Open Source Party by powerofpi
There's a massive party rockin' the world; that's right, it's the Open Source Party and you're invited! Created painstakingly in Ubuntu with GIMP. If you can name the software corresponding to all of the icons, some tech company should definitely be paying you lots of money to work for them.

As always, thanks to ~coldairbloon for technical advise and spiritual guidance. Thanks to ~Egemen1907 for the disco ball. Thanks to Batux of for the stock image of Tux. Finally, thanks to... well... the Internet for all of the OSS icons in the public domain!

I REALLY LIKE OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE xD Can you fill me in on the ones I missed?
powerofpi Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2010
Very impressive! I think the ones you missed (left to right, up to down) are: TortoiseSVN, PCLinuxOS, KeePassX, Mandriva, FreeBSD, Gentoo, Slackware, Aptana, Handbrake (not something about fruit lol), GTK, Notepad++, Songbird, Komposer, Fedora, TrueCrypt, CentOS, Eclipse, Gnucash, Apache, LyX, FileZilla. If you're a Ubuntu user, I'm surprised you missed so many Linux distros Good work though! Open Source Software rocks, that's for sure.

Since you missed them, you should really check out KeePassX (password management), LyX (LaTeX frontend, great for writing big beautiful documents without having to know LaTeX syntax), and Eclipse (if you do any programming). They're among my favorites!

I have been taught xD I like Linux, I know what PCLinuxOS, Mandriva, Gentoo, Slackware, Fedora and CentOS are, I've just never used them or gotten into them much. I don't have the hard drive space to play around a lot, and that counts with using VirtualBox too.

LaTeX looks really useful, I'll have to try it out. As for KeePassX, I never ever ever store passwords on any Windows based machine EVER, because I'm in training for penetration using Backtrack Linux (know what that is? I hope so xD) and I know how easy it is to get that stuff sometimes, plus I just have a nack for remembering passwords, so I've never really looked into KeePassX or anything.

You've quipped my curiosity to try these things out.
powerofpi Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
I do indeed know Backtrack Linux :) KeePassX stores passwords in a strongly encrypted database, so how well protected they are depends largely on your master password. I like having ridiculously strong unique passwords for every website and I don't have a memory like yours :)

I'll have to try it out then. OPEN SOURCE PRIDE! XD

Haha pretty cool!

Gotta love open source programs! I really should set up a dual boot with Ubuntu sometime though.
powerofpi Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010

Hmn, I recognise Audaciy, AbiWord, Peazip, PortableApps, Pidgin, GNU, InkScape, VLC media player, Blender, [blue?] Chrome, GIMP, Ubuntu, and Firefox. Bit surprised Thunderbird and Opera aren't there.

Excellent piece, by the way. The tidiness of the perspective amazes me.
powerofpi Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2010
Blue Chrome is Chromium, the OSS project from which Chrome is derived. I knew I could never remember them all :) Thanks for the feedback!
barefootfoof Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool fact! :D I use Firefox, so I'm ignorant to all things Chrome. x3
And, you are quite welcome! :D
