Theres no denying that Linux is in some ways behind other Operating systems, but we're all here for our own reasons.
What software packages do you use to give yourself more functionality? I'm not talking so much about GIMP as I am finding a decent google drive program (that actually keeps the directory in sync)
Windows has Cortana, and not that I want a voice assistant on my computer, I can't even sync my desktop calendar with my phone (If you know how let me know!)
There are a lot of convience-based programs out there, what are you using?
