Sticky Notes, Ubuntu Desktop

Ubuntu comes in with an integrated Sticky Notes. You just need to right click the top or bottom bar and pick add to panel and add the sticky notes icon will be where you want it. 

After it you need to right click on the icon to make new and you can stick them to the screen. The cool thing about it is that you can go into the prefrences and ask the sticky notes to leave the notes on whichever desktop(Linux can have several desktops) that you created it(my case I have one for coding, one for surfing and one for my robotics stuffs).

* This note is written according to Gnome 2.28.1

Teamviewer, for Linux

Teamviewer can be run under Linux as well. This is not supported by Teamviewer, but there are ways around it. I have been using Teamviewer now for a while to administrate my/my friends computers and the result is just perfect. The program does not need any configuration at all and can be installed and used easily. More than all it is FREE of charge for non commercial use and as it doesn't need any setup or any other configuration, it is much better than the MS RDP(Remote Desktop Protocol, Microsoft).

The program is supported under MS Windows and Mac OSX, but there are ways around it to use it at Linux. The trick is to use a program called Wine which lets one to use applications developed for MS Windows under semi Unix operating systems(Linux). I have tested Teamviewer 5.0 with Wine 1.0.1 and the result is that things work one way. You can connect/administrate/send and receive files from your Linux machine to the target computer but not vice versa. I have tried from Ubuntu 9.10 Linux to MS Windows XP and Win 7.

Teamviewer, a better solution instead of MS remote desktop

TeamViewer is a computer software package for remote control, desktop sharing, and file transfer between computers. The software operates with both Microsoft WindowsMac OS X and iPhone(and Linux with help of Wine), and is able to function while the computers are protected by firewalls and NAT proxy. It is also possible to access a machine running Teamviewer with a web browser.While the main focus of the application is to facilitate desktop support and remote control of computers, collaboration and presentation features are included within the package.
TeamViewer GmbH was founded in 2005 in Uhingen, Germany. According to the company's press releases, TeamViewer has over 60 million users operating in 50 countries worldwide.
*My comment : The real benefit in Teamviewer is that you can use it overall. You don't need any configuration, port forwarding or anything at all. You even do not need a static IP. You just need to install Teamviewer on both sides and you are done. You can make secure sessions sending, receiving files and controlling/fixing the target computer. Read my post about Teamviewer at Linux if you are wondering how to get it to work under Linux.
