What is Linux Links?

Linux Links is a collection of approximately 20,000 links to essential Linux web pages. Reviewers at Linux Links list the latest Linux sites through exhaustive searches on the net. Additional links are also provided from Linux enthusiasts.

Editors at Linux Links sort the links into organised categories which make finding a relevant site easy. Because all sites are entered manually and are reviewed on a regular basis, Linux Links is up to date. Links are deleted from the site when they are no longer active.

Why did you create it?

Linux Links initially began as a private home page. Back in 1994 Linux was beginning to take off and our bookmarks had become increasingly disorganised. Over time, demand increased from other users to list the Linux sites on a more formal basis. Linux Links was then created.

As the internet grew we saw the need to register a domain name, to make it easy for people to find the latest Linux links. Our goal is to make it simple for all types of Linux users, whether they be a complete beginner or a UNIX wizard, to find the most useful Linux sites on the internet in the least amount of time.

How do you decide what sites get listed?

Our editors sort through the sites that they find or that are contributed by volunteers. We enforce strict criteria to ensure that only relevant Linux sites are included. Some points to note:

Software category - Only the official application web site will be accepted. Sites that provide reviews, summary information, and unofficial software web sites will not be placed here. This is to ensure that this category is not diluted with 'unoffical' sites.

Personal category - This is the home for the many personal web sites that Linux enthusiasts run. A minimum level of content is required to be listed; sites consisting solely of a few links to Linux sites will not be listed. Sites unrelated to Linux will also not be listed. Again, we wish only to ensure that relevant sites are included at Linux Links.
