A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, October 26 2005 @ 03:57 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Mary Norbury-Glaser's book review of A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming.

Mark G. Sobell is well known for several comprehensive and well-written volumes: A Practical Guide to Solaris; A Practical Guide to Red Hat Linux: Fedora Core and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (2nd ed.); and A Practical Guide to the Unix System (3rd ed.). It seems only natural for the author to follow these exceptional examples with yet another excellent book entitled A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming .

Review: NTFS for Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 08 2005 @ 06:09 AM EDT
Contributed by: glosser

PC Magazine reviews a commercial product providing full NTFS support in Linux.

There's a fundamental barrier between fans of open-source software and the world of Microsoft Windows, and no, it's not the $299 list price of Windows XP Professional.

Flavio takes a look at the new Enlightenment desktop, complete with screenshots.

When Rasterman (Carsten Haitzler) and Mandrake (Geoff Harrison) started the Enlightenment project almost 10 years ago, the eye candy intensive desktop manager was barely able to run by the hardware standards of that time. KDE and Gnome were in their infancy, and FVWM was the window manager of choice for a big percentage of Linux users.

OPEN SUSE... Third Beta Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 06 2005 @ 05:53 AM EDT
Contributed by: glosser

GeekTimeLinux reviews the latest beta release of SUSE.

I must admit, when SUSE announced their OPEN SUSE Project, I was at the head of the list of skeptics. I had a major article written about how SUSE was going to follow Red Hat down the primrose path and we would have another fiasco. (OK, so Fedora isn't a complete fiasco as long as they keep putting out updates to correct the last update!)
