Graphics, User Interfaces "Though 'flat design' is a popular meme right now, there is something much, much deeper going on here at Microsoft. With my own lifelong passion for design I immersed myself in the community and got a front-row seat on a journey that has its roots as far back as the late '90s with Encarta's bold use of typography and clean interface. But it truly sprang to life in late 2010 with the launch of Windows Phone and in the last few weeks has advanced even further with Windows 8.1 and Xbox One. I started from the very place I bet you are right now - disbelief that Microsoft is leading the way on design." They really are. If Apple really goes all minimalist and digital (I dislike the term 'flat') with iOS, Microsoft will have taken over the baton. Crazy world indeed.

The only software in that link was google reader, and there are vast numbers of RSS reader apps out there. I use one I wrote, because my needs are simple, but tt-rss, akregator, rssowl, etc. work as well, if not better than google reader.

In GNU/Linux, you can edit the keys directly, to pass it through x as something different. Mapping functions to keystrokes is similarly simple in KDE, or any reasonable WM. I use awesome, so I map shortcuts to bash scripts.

You can similarly pass through a string of hotkeys or whatever, but that sort of thing is better done interacting with the actual program, and having an alias, than it is running the GUI to it, and waggling a bloody mouse around.
