Linux guides, tutorials & reviews

In this sub-section, you will find extensive, step-by-step tutorials and reviews to some of the most popular Linux distributions, tips and tricks how to work on the command line, setup and configure your Linux environment, including compilation, installation, drivers, file and printer sharing, network connectivity, security practices, links to popular software, and more.

Windows guides & tutorials

In this sub-section, you will find lots of useful advice for Windows users, including several installation tutorials, links to popular software, comprehensive security guides about web, mail, policies, and more, how to use Windows and Linux together by dual-booting, how to create live bootable Windows CDs, and many other practical ideas.

Virtualization

In this sub-section, you will learn about virtualization software - how to setup and configure multiple operating systems on a single host simultaneously, including recipes like Windows on Linux, Linux on Linux and other combinations, how to share resources between Windows, Linux and other operating systems, how to run DOS applications on modern operating systems, and other innovative tricks.

You may also want to refer to the Computer games section to see how virtualization and emulation can help you play games, as well as enjoy in-depth reviews of close to a hundred games and counting.

Multimedia

This sub-section deals with audio, video, flash, and any other form of digital media content that you may encounter and use on your computers. Here, you will learn how to obtain and play multimedia files, how to obtain the right codecs for them, how to edit the content, including splitting, joining, converting, tagging, streaming, recording, and much more.

Office & documents

This section will teach you how to work with text editors, word processors, document processors, PDF software, and other software oriented at home and business office work. You will learn about office suites, typesetting languages, tips and tricks to increase your productivity, separation of styles from content, and much more.

Internet stuff

This section is all about the Internet - Internet technologies, Web development tools, Web browsers, gadgets, and other online delights. Whether you're looking for tips on how to configure Flash, which Firefox extensions to choose, what programs to use to develop your website, or how to make your online experience more productive, you've come to the right place. Among the featured articles, you will find reviews of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and other browsers, Flash Player, privacy and security, and more.

Hardware reviews, 3D software, humor & other stuff

In this sub-section, you will learn about hardware and software in general: desktops, laptops, notebooks, netbooks, tablets, Android and Nokia smartphones, cameras, multimedia centers, gaming consoles and appliances, other fancy gadgets, backup and imaging solutions, scientific computing, applied statistical methods in software, router security, educational software, computer-related rants and humor, book reviews, rendering, and anything else not covered in previous sub-sections. Some of these topics will be branched off into separate sub-categories when the number of relevant posted articles grows enough to merit independence.

BSD, Solaris & other UNIX-like flavors

This new section has been recently created to accommodate the growing number of reviews for UNIX-like operating systems, including OpenBSD, PC-BSD, Solaris, as well as hybrid versions based on the former. While it could be cozily nested as a sub-section in the Linux category, I decided to split the two, since UNIX, despite its inevitable spiritual legacy and influence on Linux, is a separate operating system. I hope you will find this category informative and useful. Existing articles have already been merged.
