Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

KDE-based Live Installer for Knoppix+Kanotix

Klik allows you to run applications from a single file (Like OSX application dirs), but its for linux.

To install the Klik client:

1) Press Alt-F2 and paste:

wget -O -|sh

2) Restart your browser.

klik provides an easy way to download and use software for most major distributions. There are currently 3 distributions which have the klik client preinstalled: Kanotix, openSUSE (SLICK enhanced), and CPX-MINI.

I tested it with:

Knoppix 3.7
Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
Linspire Five-0
Kanotix CPX-MINI
OpenSUSE 10
Fedora Core 4
kubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"

Support for .cmg files is now installed by the klik client.
Simply click on .cmg files in KDE to run them.
(Or drag .cmg files on ~/.zAppRun in order to run them.

The klik client sets KDE to open .cmg files with ~/.zAppRun automatically.)

While not quite as sophisticated as Linspire's Click-N-Run Warehouse, the end result is the same ,easy installation of many popular applications.
