LinuxFocus July 1998

Cover Picture And here it is again....Another issue of the first free multi-lingual web magazine for and by Linux users. Our front cover for July shows LF mascot on its way to the Bay Area, with this we symbolize the closure of a chapter in the history of the magazine and the beginning of a new phase. LinuxFocus home base is moving from Pittsburgh to the Bay Area, this will be an exciting change given the number and strength of Linux users in Silicon Valley. LF will do its best to bring you inside stories and interviews from such an enthusiastic community.
Thanks UPV
UPV Stamp This new volume of our magazine brings you a mix of interesting articles ranging from graphics to system security. We thank all authors sharing with us their knowledge and work, but this month we would like to acknowledge in particular the students and staff of the Computer Science Department at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) for so many articles, translations, and support.

New Linux Products and Services.

CrossWind Technologies has recently released (June 23 , 1998) CyberScheduler 2.1 for Linux a web-based calendaring and scheduling tool for workgroups. It runs on Apache web server and supports any desktop browser. At the moment it supports both RPM and TAR installations.

There is a new Linux Chat room accesible from the web, it is available for discussions of linux topics, questions, online HOWTOs, etc. It's name is Linux-Chat and it can be accessed either via telnet (linux.intergrafix.net 5000) or java applet.

Consultants Page LF does not charge any fees for access to the articles in its totality. Therefore we do not have funds to pay authors and translators for their work. Nevertheless we feel we owe many people something for their great efforts putting this magazine in motion. Beginning September 1998 LF wants to create a "Consultants Page", every author and collaborator of the magazine will have a short paragraph of space to advertise their skills, email & web pages. We expect this new service will not only be a good way to compensate our collaborators but also a good asset of information for the linux community.

What is LinuxFocus? We are a group of Linux enthusiasts from all over the world, our goal is to make the best magazine online about Linux without ignoring the plurality of the Linux community. We write all our articles in multiple languages thus helping to bring in new and younger people to the marvelous world of Linux and UNIX. Contrary to what we have read on the web, our magazine cannot be really described as a collection of "tips & tricks". As our name indicates we aim to provide in-depth information, we have a series of articles on specific topics and as users move along the series they can make the transition from novice to advanced users.

How many languages does LinuxFocus speak? It is hard to tell because from month to month our staff continues to grow. There are 4 well-developed and strong teams already: English, French, German and Spanish. There are also smaller groups with fluctuating number of people working on other versions: Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch. We would like to see these groups to become stronger and more stable. Our doors are always open to new people, if you want to be part of LF contact the appropriate editor in "About LF" and write to us. We are always happy to see new faces.
