KStars is a nice program, I have it in all my linux installations. It is powerful considering it is free (in both senses). I also think it is the best program of its type specifially written for Linux.

That said, I still think the commercial program SkyMap Pro by Chris Marriott is the best desktop planetarium for my needs as an amateur astronomer. It has a much larger database and provides much more information than KStars on most objects, and uses a higher level of accuracy for calculations just what I need for predicting astronomical events. I run SkyMap in Wine under Linux with little problems. Its author is very helpful in his support forum.

These are the points I think KStars can still improve on. Kudos to the KStars team. - Oct 31 2007
Aero AIO

Karamba & Superkaramba by AdrienV 342 comments

Hi, I really like this theme. Like most people, I have my own wishlist:

1) A weather plugin. This way I wouldn't need Liquid Weather anymore. LW uses more memory compared to other plugins (as shown by Aero AIO's ps plugin!). To make things worse I even had to install imagemagick just for LW! I don't really need all the visuals, I just want to monitor the weather; an Aero AIO plugin would be perfect for this.

2) The temperature monitor uses the BIOS temperature. I suggest that you also show the CPU temperatures for both cores. This can easily be retrieved on the command line by the 'sensors' command, so it should not be hard to include a front-end to this in AIO. Of course there's KSensors but I don't want another window to clutter my desktop.

3) It would be nice if you could add support for dual core. The CPU graph only shows one processor.

4) How about a sensor for fragmentation and other fsck output?

5) Finally, I would like a sensor for uptime!
