  • Linux Reviews launched. 13th March, 2000 would like to announce a new Linux project - Linux Reviews.

    A few years ago Linux newcomers had, in some ways, an easy time - if they wanted a web browser, email client or editor they downloaded Netscape, Elm and Emacs respectively. The situation has changed dramatically nowadays with the newcomer presented with a huge feast of software to download; alone lists over 6,200 Linux software packages. With this amount of software to try the Linux newcomer faces a bewildering choice of software to choose from. This is where Linux Reviews steps in.

    Linux Reviews is a major project which provides short capsule reviews for Linux software with the intention of providing sufficient information to help the Linux newcomer choose great software.

    Linux Reviews is located at

    As with any Linux project its success rests in part with the Linux community. If you would like to submit a review of a software package, currently not reviewed, please click the "Add review" link at the page above and complete the form. It would be great for experienced Linux users to contribute reviews of Linux software; a perfect way to promote Linux!

  • Checklist for Newbies. 9th March, 2000

    Newcomers to Linux are presented with many hurdles that they need to overcome before they can reap the benefits of this powerful operating system. Whilst there are many great resources for the Linux newbie, there exists a need for a simple checklist that answers many of the initial questions, whilst at the same time providing some sensible advice to get started.

    The Checklist for Newbies is an attempt to help the beginner get Linux up and running. Nowadays Linux is no harder to install than any other operating system, but it does require a few simple precautions and a basic technical knowledge. We are constantly being asked for advice on this subject - what is the best Linux book for a newbie, which distribution should I buy, should I avoid certain types of hardware etc.

    The Checklist for Newbies aims at providing the Linux newbie with some unbiased, practical advice. The document is a first draft - we welcome comments, thoughts and improvements from the Linux community.

    Checklist for Newbies can be found at
    Suggestions should be emailed to

  • Latest Developments at LinuxLinks 15th January, 2000

    LinuxLinks reached over 8,000 verified LinuxLinks just after the new Millennium. This represents a rapid increase in the number of new links entered into database per month and further demonstrates the continuing expansion of quality websites on the net covering Linux.

    Given the large number of sites, LinuxLinks now features a web-site on a daily basis. The featured site is selected from those sites at LinuxLinks which have been highly rated by our reviewers or strongly recommended by site users. The list of featured web-sites can be found at Recommendations for sites not in the list are welcome. LinuxLinks now also features a Java chatroom - - where visitors can discuss the latest Linux topics on a more immediate basis.

    In a related development, the FirstLinux network has expanded the number of distributions covered in its package guide. The package guide contains detailed information about the content of packages for the most popular Linux distributions and enables visitors to determine just what distribution contains their favorite applications. Mandrake Linux and Caldera Open Linux are now covered by the database and further distributions are currently being added.

    LinuxLinks is updated daily and is in a constant state of development. The latest project is the development of partial spidering of the LinuxLinks database - this is a hybrid web spider and will improve the depth of search available from the LinuxLinks search engine.
