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.

Flash Player 9 for Linux?

I am sick of going to sites that use only Flash Player 8. I can't see every thing that site has to offer. Many Linux users ,like me, probably have reached websites which are using Macromedia Flash8 content ... a message like “You need MacroMedia Flash 8 to view this website”. It can very discouraging knowing that Flash is the latest player for Linux. Even OSX has Macromedia Flash 8. It seems like Flash player for Linux is always a version or 2 behind the Windows version. I hear that Adobe is actively working on the Linux version of “Flash Player 9”. We will see. You know its (Linux version of Flash Player 9) not going to show itself before 2007. Until then, choose what sites you go to carefully.
