    Welcome to You can visit our forum where Linux newbies can ask questions and Linux experts can offer advice. Topics include security, installation, networking and much more. Feel free to browse the board, perform a search, view the man pages online or view the index. If you would like to post you must be a member. We also have a new archive online.

    Most Linux distros in the internet are free, thus users are not required to pay for a copy. In fact, it can be downloaded for free and it can be installed legally on as many devices as you want. The systems of Linux seldom crash, but when they do, the entire system typically does not go down. Since most computer malwares are designed to evade Windows, this kind of system is usually less vulnerable. But, of course, you should not be that comfortable, that is why you need proxies to ensure your safety. You should not allow your system to be bogged down easily, by reducing the risks to Trojans, spywares, viruses, and a lot more.

    If you want to start a business, you should make sure that your system provides you with the best services. The internet is an excellent hub to cater your regular customers as well as your potential customers your wants and needs. You should cover yourself from danger so that business information as well as personal information could not be obtained by malicious people. Remember, it is hard to return things, especially when it comes to the internet. Just think of the many users that could benefit at our expense, but, we should never make it happen.

     You Can Now Stream LQ Radio Without an MP3 Player

    That's right - you can now stream any LQ Radio content even if you don't have an mp3 or ogg player installed. The one caveat is that you do need flash installed (which I will admit to disliking, and apologize in advance for - if someone can think of a better solution, we're all ears). Head on over to LQ Radio and click the "LQ Radio Jukebox" link. I'll also add it to the nav here at LQ. As always, your feedback is appreciated.

     New LQ Site - LQ Bookmarks
    By jeremy
    on Mon 11 Jul 2005, 12:57 AM

    LQ Bookmarks is now out of beta. From the Press Release:

    Buffalo, NY -- July 11, 05 -- is proud to announce a new addition to its network of sites - LQ Bookmarks. LQ Bookmarks allows you to bookmark, tag, annotate and share links to Open Source and Linux related sites. It also allows you to access your bookmarks from any browser on any machine. The ability to share and see what others are sharing is called social bookmarking. You can view links in the order they were added, by tag, by user or by popularity. RSS feeds are available for all queries. All content on the site is available under a Creative Commons license.

    Thanks again goes to David.

     New LQ Site goes BETA - Social Bookmarking
    By jeremy
    on Sat 2 Jul 2005, 5:57 PM

    As I mentioned here and in the latest LQ Podcast, we have been working on a new site that allows you to not only share, tag and annotate the Linux and Open Source sites you frequent, but see what everyone else is sharing, tagging and annotating. Sort of a random stream of consciousness or instant snapshot of what is important to the community, right now. I am happy to announce that the site is now in full public beta. Head over to to start entering your links. Keep in mind that it is still beta, but most functionality should be there and things are reasonably stable. Feedback and bug reports are welcome and encouraged. Let us know what you think. If you are currently using the LQ bookmark system, we've added links to easily migrate to the new system.

    I am proud to announce that two days ago, officially turned five. Exactly one week from today (also five years ago) I made by first post. We've come a long long way and I'd like to thank each and every member for making LQ what it is. Without it's members, LQ would be nothing. I am happy to report that this year should be a big year for LQ. We have a ton of great things on the way (including an updated forum). We should also be adding some new sites to the LQ network, which already includes the LQ Wiki and LQ ISO. As always, we want to know what you think. What does LQ need? What are we missing? In what direction would you like to see us go? Any and all feedback is welcome - we really are listening.

     James Turner and Dee-Ann LeBlanc Interviewed
    By jeremy
    on Wed 18 May 2005, 12:42 AM

    LQ Radio has interviewed James Turner and Dee-Ann LeBlanc, former editors for LinuxWorld Magazine. In the interview, they go into what exactly led up to their decision to leave Sys-Con, their comments on the Free Software Magazine interview with Fuat, exactly who ended up stepping down and where some of them have found new homes. The line between blogging and journalism, and the expectation of privacy that bloggers and journalists can expect is also discussed. I'd like to thank both Dee-Ann and James for taking the time to be on the show.
