Reviews

When I first read about XANDROS SERVER, I thought this might be a marriage made in heaven. The Press Release said that this was a Linux based server for System Admins with little or no Linux experience. Mine was a little different. I had Linux experience, however no server or server set-up experience.

Also: Xandros 4 Home Ed. is a breeze to install!

COMPLETELY LOST in Blender - The untutorial part 1

Filed under
Software

Feeling brave, I decide to open up Blender. The 3D drawing tool. I have been meaning to learn how to use this program since it was released under an open license.
