BSD

All about Linux: FreeBSD along with OpenBSD and NetBSD form the triumvirate of BSD operating systems. Traditionally these BSDs are server centric operating systems - ie. those which are tuned to be run on a server rather than to be used by the end user as a desktop. Still, with a bit of tweaking and configuration, all the three of them can be used as viable desktop operating systems.

Linux
Reviews

Linux.com: VectorLinux has been one of my favorite projects since my first test of the distribution almost 18 months ago. I like VectorLinux because its roots are firmly planted in the stability and simplicity of Slackware, yet it comes with an extensive software base and lots of out-of-the-box great looks; in other words, a rock solid foundation with eye candy and useful functionality.

Unix Review: Ivor Horton is a beginner's best friend (Beginning C++ 6, Beginning Ansi C++, Beginning Java 2). And his Beginning C text is definitely no stranger to this forum as I reviewed the 3rd Edition in October 2004. What's new with the 4th Edition, and do you need it?
