This week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish), we posted a brief tutorial about installing XBMC on Ubuntu 8.10. As you certainly know, XBCM is a complete Media Center based on Ubuntu. This program is multiplatform (Linux, Windows, OS X and also XBOX – not officially supported-) and, in our opinion, is the most efficient and complete open source media center you can find today on the Internet. Moreover, XBMC has developed a special version that could be installed on a USB Key on a Live CD to freely test the application before installing on your PC. The post is brief but contains all the complete instructions to quickly install XBMC without problems. Please, be sure to digit sudo apt-get update in Terminal after you install the new repositories.

This week, in our Linux page we posted some news about Click’R Run, the well known Linspire’s software (free in its basic version) to manage applications, libraries and packages. Soon (more or less 5 months), Click’N Run will be available also for Debian, Fedora, Freespire, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. In its actual Linspire version, Click’N Run is very easy to use and has a library of 20.000 Linux packages so I think that it will be interesting to try when it will be available for the other Linux distributions.
