Issue 8

lv7-coverBuilding a Linux distro is easier that you think, and we show you how. Whether you want more eye candy, or nothing but a terminal, you can tailor your very own OS as much or as little as you like.

We take a look at the rise of open hardware, peer back through the mists of time and discover how Linux gaming became the phenomenon that it is today, and build a remote control for an XBMC-powered smart hifi. You can put your skills to the test with our challenge which this month is all about password cracking. There’s a round up of Raspberry Pi distros, a guide to stop motion animation, an interview with Red Hat’s Jan Wildeboer, and much more. Take a look at the contents spread below for a full list.

Issue 8 is making its way to subscribers around the world now, and has just hit newsstands in the UK (WHSmith high street and travel stores, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, McColls/Martin’s). It will be in Barnes and Noble in the USA soon, along with Eason in Ireland and independent newsagents in Canada, Australia and many other countries.
