I'd like to gradually use more Linux. In order to that i'm looking for cross-platform applications with abilities to synchronize its files. I would like it to be almost automatic - sharing files, settings between win and linux. What is more I'd like to have possibility to sync data between PC and laptop. What I have already found out:
- Java Dev - Netbeans
- Text Editor - Gedit with many plugins... (in oder to bring notepad++ features)
- Calendar - Google Calendar
- News Feeds - Google Reader
- IM - Pidgin with settings stored in dropbox
- Online File Sharing between PC's - Dropbox
- 'offline' (without online storage) file sharing - Unison
- Web browser - Chrome with bookmarks and extensions syncing
- Mail - Thunderbird - accounts configured with IMAP
- Video Playing - VLC
- Passwords - Keepass (wine on linux) with database stored on dropbox
- Notes and TODO lists - and that is the problem. I'm looking for application with client for windows and linux but with content stored online (and maybe with ability to edit notes via web browser). I've tried tiddlywiki but it becomes slow when it grows... For small notes works Tomboy with notes stored on dropbox (but no possibility to edit files online). But I need also something more complex with e.g. latex support and syntax highlighting for pasted source code.
- For syncing Linux application settings - conduit synchronizer or simply home directory stored in Dropbox (or Ubuntu One in Ubuntu) with symbolic link
- For linux - it is possible to export and import list of installed packages - sync between computers.
- For windows its probably impossible to sync list of installed applications...
Do you have any other ideas to improve this "dual-boot dual-computer" system?
