Why Linux rocks

Posted 12-20-2008 at 05:25 AM by serafean

Eyecandy, some might claim it useless; I say sure it is, but it sure is nice... Take an old PC : Athlon 1gHz, 320MB RAM, and a Radeon 9200SE, try running windows with eyecandy on it (Vista? no way; XP possible but quickly bloated). Now I take Linux, install compiz-fusion and fire away those nice effects... PC still as responsive as ever, GNOME still as nice (even nicer) and an overall wobbly experience.

but it's hard for me to express it in words. I hope that I'll be clear enough to make it understandable.
2. All of the bellow is my own opinion and shouldn't be considered anything else.

There is a lot of functionality duplication in Linux Distributions.
I don't mean that there are too many applications that do the same tasks, this is actually good (choice...

Howto set up a Wireless Bridge in Debian

Posted 12-17-2008 at 02:34 PM by sridhar11

A wireless router is great when toting a computer with a wireless interface around, but moving a wired computer to another room or floor often means stringing an unsightly Ethernet cable through the house. The alternative is buying a wireless adapter, hoping that a Linux driver is available for it (there often isn’t). Even a wireless interface is no good when used out of range of the wireless router.
