I know a bunch of Ubuntu folks switched to Identi.ca, what with it being like an open-source Twitter. And a bunch of us are using Gwibber to send and receive updates. There's talk going on of some micro-blogging (with Identi.ca/Laconica's tags, that is) for Ubuntu and possibly UDS and such. But right now I'm wondering who's using Gwibber? I know I am. Jorge Castro is. Myrtti is. Who else?
If you haven't heard of it, I just wrote an article on it for MakeUseOf. I'm rather pleased to see the Windows users who are sad it's a Linux-only app, though. I mean, when some of the best FOSS out there (Firefox, OpenOffice.org, GIMP) is cross-platform, where's the incentive to switch to Linux? We need more of these really great but Linux-only apps to entice them over, right? And then we hear these silly excuses for not using Linux like "there are no applications for Linux" or "Linux apps all suck," which is certainly not true at all. Let's prove them wrong.
And if you want to get Gwibber some attention, it's up on Digg right now.
