I'm happy to report that you can now log into the LQ Wiki using OpenID. This is the beginning of our OpenID evaluation at LQ. Because of that, we're interested in what you think about both OpenID in general and about adding it to the main LQ site, either as a consumer (which would allow you to log in) and/or as a provider (that is, you would get your OpenID from us). Visit to discuss OpenID or head to to participate in the wiki. If you have an existing wiki account and would like to convert to OpenID, you can do so on your user page. In addition, the LQ Wiki recently received a significant code upgrade. Help us build the largest general Linux knowledge base.

LQ ISO has now facilitated over 3,000,000 downloads. With 414 distribution versions available from over 700 mirrors, we hope LQ ISO is your first stop for downloading Linux. As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions on how the site can be improved, please let us know. Visit for all your Linux ISO download needs.

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 in any browser from any machine. In addition, the section allows you to get a quick overview of what's currently popular in the community and get an early heads up on new Open Source resources. Did you know LQ had a social bookmarking section? Visit to find out more.
