More Points for Linux

Well to add even more "cool" points to Ubuntu and Linux as a whole, I discovered recordMyDesktop today. With this easily installed program you can create live screen captures of your desktop as a video. This is especially useful for say recording a specific process you would like to show as an instructional piece, porting a "PowerPoint" to video, or in my case creating a time lapse effect for GIS applications. Below you'll find a simple screen capture example.

For those Linux users who would like to check the software out, simply enter this command into Terminal.
sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop gtk-recordmydesktop
