Getting things done on Linux
A good to-do list manager can make all the difference to your productivity. While there isn’t a shortage of to-do managers available for Linux, Tasque obviously pronounced “task”) has a couple of advantages over many other tools.
One advantage in particular is the ability to use a range of sources for your to-do list, including the popular “Remember the Milk” online task application. Tasque is a little slow to update if you’re connecting over a slow line from the foot of Africa but for bandwidth-rich users that shouldn’t be a problem.
If you’re not a Remember the Milk user but an Evolution fan then the good news is that Tasque can also use the Evolution Server as the store for tasks. Which means you can manage your workload through either the full Evolution task manager or the lighter Tasque interface.
Tasque is neat, light and reasonably quick. Tasks can be categorised, assigned due dates and can be given a priority. Nothing flash but then you don’t need much more than that for an effective to-do list.
Tasque is built on the cross platform Mono framework which makes it portable and possible to port to a range of platforms. I’m not a huge fan of Mono applications as I find many of them liable to be unstable but having said that Tasque performs reasonably well.
