Recommended software from Deepin Software Center (01/09/14)
This week, Linux Deepin has selected the following applications for you: Transmission Transmission is a set of lightweight BitTorrent clients (in GUI, CLI and daemon form). All its incarnations feature a very simple, intuitive interface on top on an efficient, cross-platform back-end. Being simple, easy, lean and powerful, Transmission was installed by default on Linux Deepin’s previous releases. Briquolo Briquolo is a breakout game clone. It might remind you of the once-popular game named Arkanoid. Briquolo offers modern graphical effects and is very fast-paced. However, it remains for you to decide whether the game has surpassed its predecessors.
