Best Software Programs In Ubuntu For Internet Marketers

As I said in my previous article, if you are an internet marketer, I strongly suggest that you try UBUNTU Linux. But what are the programs that you can use as an internet marketer in Ubuntu? Can it really substitute Windows for its programs?

Here are the list of programs that you can best use in internet marketing using UBUNTU.

Open Office – I think this is a must for any office based jobs. Of course you want to create documents, files etc. In here, I will make this very important statement, Open Office is not a substitute for MS Office, it is a complete REPLACEMENT for MS Office. This set comes with Open Office Writer (Word equivalence), Spreadsheet (Excel equivalence), Presentation (Power Point Equivalence), Drawing.

Kompozer – This is a totally FREE Page Maker. This is what you might have heard from other internet marketers. If you have been with Affiliorama, this is what Mark Ling is suggesting to have. This is what they call before as NVU. NVU stopped its development now, but Kompozer continued the project. This is a very good substitute for Dreamweaver.

GIMP – The equivalence of this software in windows is the Adobe Photoshop. It is a little weird to use if it is your first time. But if you have been using it for a week, you will find out that GIMP can equal the ability of Adobe Photoshop (depending to your expertise in GIMP). One comment though, I haven't seen yet a developer who develops an action scripts for GIMP to create ebook covers. For sure it is possible to develop but as of the moment, this is really a big set back for GIMP if you are an internet marketer who wants to create an ebook cover. But if you know GIMP and you are reading this, perhaps you might want to share your talent for everybody that you will try to work on developing action scripts for ebook cover making using GIMP. Other than this, I would say, GIMP is really a potential substitute to the expensive Adobe Photoshop.

WINE – This another unique software of UBUNTU. This software will allow you to install and work on windows based programs. Though, I am afraid that it is not yet in its best right now, believe me, this will continue to become better and better. Time will come that even those softwares in windows that you really cannot get rid of will not be a problem in installing it and working in it using UBUNTU.

FileZilla – This is a FREE FTP Client. In the net you will find lots of FTP softwares sold between $20-30. I have tried one of them. Just within three days, the software begin to crash and bug down. Then in my personal research, I have found this Linux based FTP Client. I would say this is the best FTP. Until now, I haven't experienced crashing and errors using this excellent File Transfer Protocol.

Firefox – Of course you know this outstanding internet browser even if you are using windows. This is the default internet browser of UBUNTU.

There you have it, the five essential tools for internet marketing. Take note, all of them are free. If you are using windows, there should be no problem either. You can still have them because all of these softwares where also made available for windows. The only difference is that, if your operating system is windows, then I am afraid that it will be infected with virus (which is most likely to happen), you will have to reinstall them all over again. Unlike if you use a Linux based OS, then it is at least more safe from these nasty computer viruses.


What are you going to do now? Try UBUNTU. www.ubuntu.org.
