MythTV usually conjures up two thoughts amongst Linux users: it's a
brilliant digital TV platform, but it's also notoriously difficult
to set up correctly. Fortunately, then, this month's cover feature
teams up with the mighty Mythbuntu (on the DVD) and helps you
configure a powerful, attractive and feature-laden personal video
recorder. You can watch TV over the web, cut out annoying adverts
and never miss your favourite shows again.
Meanwhile, the Ubuntu Community Manager explains the tricks of
project management, while we look at how to convert weary Windows
users to the happy world of free software. In our reviews section we
look at OpenSUSE 11.4, SpaceChem and OpenShot, while our tutorials
bit covers KDE, LPI certification, Bash scripting, accessing iOS
devices on Linux and more.
Then there's the software-packed 4GB DVD, featuring a trifecta of
OpenSUSE 11.4 versions: KDE, Gnome and 64-bit. Then there's the
aforementioned Mythbuntu 10.10, a demo of the top-scoring SpaceChem
puzzler, Puppy Linux 5.2, development tools, games, podcasts and
heaps more to explore.
