6 of the Best Free Linux Collection Managers
For many individuals collection managers are an important type of software. It is human nature to collect objects, in part because people derive pleasure from the simple ownership of objects. The things that we collect change over time, partly as a result of technological improvements, and partly because our wants and desires do not remain static.
You probably have a few collections that are continuing to grow. Whether it's books, coins, DVDs, CDs, stamps, or even objet d'art, many people own collections without having any structured record. However, keeping such a record can be very useful as it enables the collection to be managed. Moreover, collectors may have no accurate way of measuring the value of their collection for insurance purposes without such a structured record.
There is a wide range of collection manager software available for Linux. However, the majority of this software is specialised, focusing on one or two different collectable items. The purpose of this review is primarily to identify the finest collection manager software which track a diverse range of items. This type of software has the advantage that users can keep track of all of their different collection types using a single software application. However, specialised collection managers are still worthy of a mention.
All of the software featured in this article sport an attractive graphical user interface, and make use of the internet to help with the process of cataloguing your collection.
