Thank you to Yietzel who posted a comment asking us some information about how to create a tar file. In the Linux page we created a short but effective post about this topic. This short manual (yes it is a manual because we included also the instructions to create: gz, bz2, tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip, lha, arj, zoo, rar files) is short but very clear and easy to use. We really hope you find our post useful. Please, let us know!
This week some French sites announced the launch of a new Ipod concurrent: Wipzy. This new Mp3 reader has a preloaded Turbolinux OS and plays mp3, ogg, aac, divx and jpeg files. Wipzy, if connected with a computer, could be a bootable linux OS (Turbolinux) with Firefox, Thunderbird, Voip and Skype. The weigth is 60 grams and the player will have a 4 gb flash memory. At the moment the estimated price is USD 250.00 and, in February, it will tested in the Japanese market before being selled in Europe and USA. If these information are correct, perhaps, in the next years, ipod will have a more frightening competitor than Zune.
Frank has reviewed a bootable Linux CD called Kororaa. This particular Linux version (derived from Gentoo Linux philosophy) has a fantastic and efficient 3D graphics. In particular you will be astonished (we really were surprised) by the 3D desktop supported in Kororaa. The most interesting thing is that you can use this bootable Linux CD also if you have not a “last generation”, powerful graphic card! We hope you will enjoy Kororaa and.. please.. if you want let us know your point of view writing some comments about this Linux version. Thanks.
Hi everyone, we are sorry for our delay in writing new posts! This week in our Linux page (in Spanish) you can find some new posts. The first post is about Wine and the easiest way (we hope, let us know…) to install this program in Linux OS. The second post concerns zamzar.com, an useful web-page where you can easily convert your files (image, doc, music, video) to different formats (the use of a temporary email address is recommended if you believe it’s not sure to spread your personal email address). Last but not least, we have posted a brief review about Mediafire: a free file hosting site (practical and easy to use). See you next week!
