Deepin File Manager (DFM) reached version 1.4 at March 2017. Its a bugfix version, but very interesting as it brings many new features. The most noticeable changes are Settings dialog, new disk-space display, new "Format" option on disk storage, and new copying dialog. It's smoother now by having drop shadow on file/folder icons. DFM is much more beautiful and usable in this 1.4 version. Anyway, you can upgrade DFM to 1.4 on deepin OS, or in another distro (Manjaro DDE or Ubuntu).

This is Task Manager addon for Firefox by TheLaGmAn. It's similar to our system monitor in Ubuntu, but crafted specifically to count memory use of tabs and addons in Firefox. You can see memory/CPU usage per tab, for example, and kill them by selecting. You can sort them so you know which tab consumes your memory the most/the least. If you are Chrome user, this addon is a replacement for Navigator Task Manager. This addon is awesome so that I wish Mozilla would include this by default on Firefox.

For Ubuntu users switching to Fedora, or vice versa, anyone needs a comparison of both common package manager commands. The goal is the user knows that "dnf install" in Fedora is equal to "apt-get install" in Ubuntu and so on. This article compares common use such as sync, install, remove, upgrade, and repolist; plus config files and further references. Here this article provides that comparison in a simple format.

If you are using deepin GNU/Linux 15.4, the latest dde-file-manager 1.4 has already available in unstable repo. In case you want to upgrade only Deepin File Manager (e.g. not whole system), make sure your unstable repo is enabled, and do:

Get the latest repo "maps":
$ sudo apt-get update

See if 1.4 is available for you:
$ apt-cache policy deepin-file-manager

Then upgrade it:
$ sudo apt-get install deepin-file-manager
Now you can run it, see the version number from the "About" menu or command line deepin-file-manager --version . In my system (fresh deepin 15.4) this upgrade downloads around 3.5MB data for 8 packages.

zsync can help you to cut in half or more of your download size of a GNU/Linux distro. With zsync, if you already have an older version of Ubuntu image, you only have to download "the change" between it and the newer image on the server. zsync is very efficient in bandwidth and time, saving resources for both the server and the user. This way, using zsync can reduce your download cost extremely.
