Highlights
Excellent Free Distraction-Free Tools for Writers
Fans of the typewriter remain a vehement group. They view the typewriter as something really special, a tool which makes the connection between languages. One of the attractions of a typewriter is that it offers a distraction-free alternative of modern day methods for producing a document. They challenge the writer to concentrate on what really matters - the content. They force the writer to think.

  • Comparison of Linux Distributions
    an attempt to provide a basic feature list and a package comparison table of the major, some minor and regional Linux distributions
  • Elfstone Linux
    Kevin Reichard provides a short review of this distribution which is geared towards programmers and network administrators
  • EnGarde Secure Linux
    ESL is clearly designed for those who want a product that is prepackaged and ready to go out of the box
  • HomeDistro
    The purpose of HomeDistro is to put more focus using Linux on home computers. The home PC makes up over 70% of the desktop market and should not be ignored by developers and remaster geeks. The HomeDistro site reviews Linux distributions and ranks them for home PC use. Helpful tips and package suggestions are offered plus there is a forum to allow imput.
  • Immunix 7.0
    fell victim to both the ptrace and the zlib vulnerabilities because neither are buffer-overflow or format-string bugs
  • Libranet 2.7
    "long with a collection of up-to-date applications, the latest kernel, video support, a choice of window managers (KDE, GNOME, Xfce, IceWM, etc.) and Adminmenu's comprehensive system tools, Libranet 2.7 provides a smooth ride to high-power Debian Linux for both the neophyte and the experienced user."
  • Lycoris Desktop/LX 'Amethyst Version'
    "Personally, I feel that if Lycoris fixes the annoying installation and font rendering bugs, add better 3D support and overall OS speed, offer more applications via IRIS, polish a bit more the UI and add some of the pref panels that their competition has, we are seriously looking at a very promising (and fearsome by their competitors :) operating system"
  • Secure OS Software for Linux 1.0
    our test security cases, the ptrace and zlib bugs, were not handled very well by HP. Given that the distribution devotes most of its effort to protecting network-based services, this isn't surprising
  • Trustix Secure Linux 1.5
    the product is not based on a traditional distribution, but rather is packaged from the ground up by Trustix
  • Yellow Dog Linux 3.0
    "I would say that YDL is ideal for exploring Linux, since it has a nice out-of-the-box experience. I can't say that the performance is any better than Mac OS X on the same machine, but the visual appearance is excellent and a nice antidote when the sticky-candy look of Mac OS X begins to grate on you."
