Linux Format issue 144 is on sale now!


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.

Wow, I live in the USA and I received my issue yesterday! Great job! It's always a pleasant surprise to receive each month's issue in a timely manner.

Thanks for #! CrunchBang Statler!

Picked up your fine magazine (#142) at a local big box electronics / appliance outlet (US - Fry's). I had looked at #! some time ago, and it seemed a wee bit beyond my comfort level. Since that time, I had learned much and I booted up that delightful disk you include in each month's issue. I was immediately smitten by the spare style and the optimized performance. I have quit looking for the <perfect> distro; I believe that I have found it. Thanks again - who knows how long it would have taken to find #! without your midwifery. You guys rock, and I will peruse each future issue.
