Useful Links

Linux Links:

Linux is a wonderful operating system for developers because it and most of its applications are freely distributed as source code under the GNU General Public License. This enables anyone so desiring the ability to modify and expand Linux code, and therefore upgrades for Linux and many of its applications are available on practically a daily basis. This also allows for much larger and more scrutinized project groups than commercial groups with their confidential code. It is little wonder that at the start of 1999, it was shown that Linux with it free code could outperform the pricey Window NT Advanced Server(TM) in many ways including as a web server, a firewall, and a file server (even when serving Windows(TM) drives). Of the thousands of existing Linux sites, I have found the ones below to be among the most reliable, most frequently updated and most extensive.

Linux HQ (Linux Announcements)
