With all the Macworld talk this week, the Windows/Linux crowd may have felt like they were left out in the dust - that is, unless they were in the gadget heaven that is CES. If you're hankering for a download and your a non-macer, check out WorkRave, a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury.
Workrave reminds you to take micro-pauses, rest breaks and restricts you to your daily limit. The program runs on GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows. For more about it,
WorkRave pops up and prompts you for a "micro break" or a longer exercise break at time intervals you determine. The app will even suggest anti-RSI exercises for your eyes, back and shoulders to help prevent backaches, headaches and carpal tunnel. WorkRave is a free download, Windows and Linux only. Mac users should check out MacBreakZ, a very similar Mac download.
