First up one resource which I left out in the last entry was GNUWIN . The only problem with this resource its quite old. The only good thing about that one is you get to know of tools and applications which could help. Apart from that the project is quite dead 😦 Please be aware that this one is going to be a long long long one. Apologies for the same.
Sorry first of all for all the delay in the same. A certain malady made my computer sick, had to reformat my sytem which hadn’t been formatted since the Dapper days . I wanted to stick with it for a few days till ext4 was standardized and came on the installer but oh well, now just will wait for brtfs to be standardized as well. It would be cool to see what happens and what kind of latencies would be there.
Anyways coming back to the topic at hand, so quite a few questions were asked by people both publically as well privately as well. So rest of the blog-post would be answering queries people have sent in.
While I do not like to write entries back-to-back I had been thinking of a long long time to write a basic GNU/Linux primer for non-geeks and that just been pushed away for long. So rest of the post would be about some pointers for people who are new to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and GNU/Linux .
