Fie on Photoshop: Image Editing in Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 24 2008 @ 03:14 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

It has been said (so many times that I'm ready to start twapping people) that the most important missing killer app for Linux is a free Adobe Photoshop clone.

Untangle Not a Tangle At All Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, January 14 2008 @ 10:06 AM EST
Contributed by: sde

One of the best uses for Linux is special-purpose, tightly managed distributions for a single purpose, and Untangle has created one of the most impressive applications of this principle. The Untangle Gateway bundles together a list of applications that even seasoned sysadmins couldn't install and effectively manage in a timely manner. We've been playing with the Untangle Network Gateway for a few months, and we must say: "well done."

Pyrolinux 1.0 Gives Off Little Heat Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, January 07 2008 @ 02:40 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

It's not every day you see the launch of a brand new Linux distribution, so when I heard that Pyrolinux 1.0 was released over Christmas, I thought I'd take a look. Pyrolinux is based on Linux Mint, which is itself a modified version of Ubuntu, so I suppose the term "new distribution" only loosely applies here.
