Top 10 Ways to Turn Your Retired Gadgetry into the Technology of the Future
SExpand I have written How-Tos for many of them, but I concentrate on the "why" answers, not the "how". There are lots of places on the internet with step-by-step guides. That isn't my best skill, I know this. When I do attempt to explain how-to, I don't deal with GUIs unless absolutely necessary. Why not? For folks who want an all-in-one solution, [www.zentyal.org] seems reasonable to get most of those things with a web GUI. There's also [www.howtoforge.com] with step-by-step instructions for commonly needed configurations from desktops (search for "Perfect Desktop") to servers (search for "Perfect Server"). * LinuxQuestions.org is helpful. * The forums for your distro-of-choice can be very helpful. * Your local LUG. Effort is required. I may start a series of articles on doing this once Ubuntu Server 11.10 comes out. * copy/paste, * edit a few local things for your situation, then you'll be golden.
