Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"For years, a staple tool I have relied on is a clipboard
manager to keep tabs on reusable text snippets. The Linux desktop
has several noteworthy clipboard managers. Some are much handier
than others for working with parcels of text that I can easily swap
from a clipping queue to a document or Web page form.
"Anyone who works constantly with bulk text needs a reusable
copy-and-paste buffer to store multiple snippets of text. A
weakness in the Linux desktop makes a clipboard manager a necessary
add-on tool. Most applications that store selected text in memory
unload the storage when the application closes. Clipboard managers
provide a volatile memory queue."
