Nitro is a great "to-do" list application that provides a simple and sleek interface toi manage your tasks.

In most instances, whenever you need an application in Ubuntu, you can install it using the Terminal or through the Synaptic Package Manager.

This script is useful if you're using my Savant3 compressor, or simply if you need to encode your code snippets.
