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.

Where film making is going

I saw a French movie called Immortal. It was one of those films shot entirely in "digital backlot", where the actors were all shot in front of blue- and green-screens with all the backgrounds added in post-production. It takes place in New York one hundred years in the future. Some kind of giant pyramid has materialized out of thin air and floats above the city.
There are practically are no physical sets in any real sense of the word. Unlike other movies in the past, Immortal goes one step further by using digitized human actors as well as real life ones. You get to see some cool views of a future world, however these glimpses are simply just there and are never really explained. It's an ok film, very pretty as well. Immortal will show you where Sci-fi/Fantasy film making is going as the art of digital backlot gets better.
