Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Thanks for your article.

    Just a minor correction: Jomic does run on Linux, simply use the same installer as for Windows – it’s platform independent. Additionally there is a Java Web Start release available from the Jomic site.

    (For the daring ones: there also is an experimental Debian package you can build from the source code repository.)
