If You Knew Cash Like GnuCash Knows Cash

http://www.linux-mag.com

The next question is, "Will I understand anything the author is saying?". Depends.

SliTaz live CD: small but beautifully marked

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

When I came across the oddly named SliTaz I really didn’t know what to expect. Yet another predictable fork of some better known distro which would blaze briefly in the free software firmament, burn out and fall to Earth, spent? Boy, was I ever wrong.

Video Editing in Linux: Kino v Open Movie v KdenLive

http://desktoplinux.wordpress.com

I have yet to see a decent article on using video with Linux, so I thought I would write one. I’ve been working with video and posting my clips on YouTube using Windows Movie Maker 2.
