AV Linux Overview: AV Linux is NOT a Linux Distribution in the ‘proper’ sense… It is a freely shared 32 and 64bit downloadable and installable ISO Image created from a carefully pre-configured snapshot of the Debian GNU/Linux “Testing” Distribution. This ISO image is provided to facilitate and initiate the use of Linux as an Audio/Video/Graphics content creation platform. AV Linux is essentially a collected showcase of the phenomenal work of Open-Source developers from all over the planet and celebrates and presents their work organized in an easy-to-use fashion. In addition to a hardware-friendly efficient XFCE4 Desktop a low-latency Audio environment is provided with a custom ‘RT’ kernel and JACK Audio Connection Kit.

Planet In this article we are going to look at implementing the Facebook Open Graph (OG) tags on a Drupal site. It involves a bit of coding but nothing too major so bear with me. All the code we are going to write goes into the theme's template.php file so no need to to create a module for it. 100+ awesome free and open source applications - Software - Posted on Tuesday 27th of September 2011 at 13:05 in SoftwareIt has always amazed me quite how many incredible, varied and useful applications are available for free on the Internet.

Thinstation Thinstation is a basic and small, yet very powerful, Open Source thin client operating system supporting all major connectivity protocols: Citrix ICA, NoMachine NX, 2X ThinClient, Microsoft Windows terminal services (RDP, via RDesktop), VMWare Horizon View, Cendio ThinLinc, Tarantella, X, telnet, tn5250, VMS terminal and SSH (No special configuration of the application servers is needed to use Thinstation). Thinstation is mainly intended for schoolroom, office, company or department use, but can be used at home (eg. for a silent PC in the bedroom that 'runs' XP on your workstation in the back room). While Thinstation is based on Linux, users may actually never see Linux at all. If you decide to connect directly to a Microsoft Windows, Citrix or Unix server, the user will feel that they are running directly on the server. But, you can also have a local Desktop interface (with a local Browser & other tools). Thinstation runs on ordinary PC hardware (32/64 bit i686 class).

This is a big deal for a variety of reasons, especially given that Wikipedia may well be the most content-focused mainstream website out right now. GeoHack - Toolserver wiki GeoHack is a modified version of map sources from Egil Kvaleberg's gis extension. It is designed to do simple HTML replacements of a template on Wikipedia and serve it to the client.

If your on the computer, you can't see my phone symbols. I'm saying I heart Ubuntu. by floridabel Dec 22

There is a game program I would like to write that requires some though not allot of graphics, plus some though not much sound. I'm thinking of using Dark Basic to write the program. Does Linux have an application for game development that is similar to Dark Basic? I would have to learn Dark Basic on this win7 computer and might as well write the program on a Linux computer if there is something that I can get running and understand. I haven't written a program since about 1985. Though it takes me 3 to 4 weeks to learn any new computer language well enough to start writing code. So if there is some programming app. that Linux has that would work I would like to write the program for a Linux OS. Any suggestions? by timepeaces Oct 30

To davidedepau1996 I like Ubuntu. Had it installed on my desktop, Back when I had winxp. Well xp just didn't like the linux partition so it crashed it. I installed Linux in a VM on this laptop then ran out of room on this computer puny 300 gig harddrive. When I get a terrabyte drive I'll clean this one off and put both Ubuntu and win 7 in a Virtual environment. It will be a few weeks. Since you understand Ubuntu maybe you can answer a question. Cont. by timepeaces Oct 30

Hi puppy linux live is he fasest way to partition and format a drive to get ready for any system install. I'll probably intall a vmware usb boot linux soon in addition the windows system. I should run win7 off a usb drive also. Easy to fix probs that way. especially if your running in a vmware environment. L8trs by timepeaces Oct 30

I use Ubuntu mainly in the form of a 'Live Disc' to give me a clean enviroment to do online ordering and banking. However the sheer amount of great open source software now available - that I have used for a long time in Windows environment and exists in Linux - is going to make me ditch Windows very soon. by matthewbridges Oct 29

Yes If I had 2 computers or extra drives that I could dedicate to ubuntu I would try another dual boot system. My other computer runs one game that will only run under winxp. This one I use for research and it has the 300 gig drive full. Do I have too many interest? Yes probably. Oh well that is what keeps things interesting:) I hope one day soon to get back to building cities in Active worlds 3d universe. I do not believe they have ever made a version to run on Linux.

I use VLC too. I think the issues come from my particular TV set (50" bit the dust). Also I use a very old PC for playback, so I'm not complaining much. It is improving, too, plus I try to avoid mlk which is probably too CPU-intensive. by alendar Feb 26

Does the Chinese version of Ubuntu not contain secret sensor filters? Just asking..... by michiel99 Feb 26

Using VLC player I havent come across a movie that did not play. To set screen resolutions I have used xrandr which has always helped me. Of course not all Win software runs on Linux. Some people complai e.g. about not having an equivalent of One-Note. On the other hand, there are many blessings to be counted as you apparently have discovered. Happy Computing! by michiel99 Feb 26

I switched from Windows 7 after it crashed (due to errors in booting and impatience), and I couldn't get a CD from MSFT, since it was a download installation. It was very hard to get used to 10.04 and I hated having to install MP3 and video code, and it couldn't handle my 50 in monitor perfectly. Some movies wouldn't play right. I missed Visual C++ with its powerful interface. I had switched to U++, though, but little things in Ubuntu in U++ IDE did not work right in debugging. Death of a thousand cuts, but I fought through it, and now am quite happy. I like watching it improve steadily. All pay-for code has a vested interest in forcing you into new paradigms of work-flow and tool use in order to get you to spend. Free software can leave a good thing alone. by alendar Feb 26

Completely agree. If only the general user community would be able to get past its fear of anything new. Often, when I tell people about Ubuntu, they jump to the conclusion that b/c it's not Windows, it's incompatible. by trustcircle Feb 9

you might also want to see what desktop enviorment you like better GNOME or KDE (most large Distros come with both) there are also a fre other Desktop enviorments such as LXDE and Xfce. by fatality Dec 6

@The_third_man - well at least your begining your venture into the alternitave relm of better OS's . Ubuntu is a great start and if you need any help or have any questions feel free to ask by fatality Dec 6

@fatality -- Wow. That's a lot of OS's. I'd like to look into them, but I've just begun my journey into the alternative -- still getting used to doing things a bit differently. by the_third_man Dec 1

Ubuntu is a great OS but persionaly i like Sabyon, Mint and BackTrack more as thez suit my needs better by fatality Nov 30
