This month in Linux Voice.

"Simple tools for a single purpose" is supposed to be the philosophy of Unix and the Linux revolution, but we humans are forever enticed by the goal of building one tool that will do everything. For many years, the open source world has toyed with integrating email with Personal Information Manager (PIM) features like calendaring and contacts. An innovative application called Kube takes this illusive concept a step further – not just integrating but blurring the edges between the various components. This month we dive into Kube and show you how it works and why it might be a little different from what you're using now. Also inside, we take a snapshot of the Geeqie photo manager, and we deliver another useful installment in our series on the Mastodon open source social-networking tool.
