12Nov Startup Control Panel
Startup Control Panel is a nifty control panel applet that allows you to easily configure which programs run when your computer starts. It’s simple to use and, like all my programs, it’s very small and won’t burden your system. A valuable tool for system administrators!
Startup Control Panel is compatible with all modern versions of Windows through Windows XP. Windows Vista, after all these years, finally has a very good startup manager built-in; go to Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools, and then click on Manage Startup Programs on the left.
You can use Control Panel application (.cpl) or stand-alone .exe file.
I have used DTP (Desktop Publishing or page layout software) software like QuarkXPress, PageMaker and InDesign more than 10 years and always looking for any freeware alternative. And there is one – It’s called Scribus and has a lot of the features InDesign boasts. It should also be great for making PDF files (just like InDesign).
Scribus is an open-source program that brings award-winning professional page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X, OS/2 and Windows desktops with a combination of “press-ready” output and new approaches to page layout. Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation.
