    Linux Format

    Do any of you get Linux Format? Next to "Linux Journal" I think this is a great resource for all things Penguin. Anyway, in this month's magazine there's a great article on PHP Website Authentication...worth a look!

    Next month they are looking at Linux in education. Just a heads-up.

    Did I mention that the cover disk this month has a copy of Knoppix 4 on it? OK. I just did.

    I don't work for them, honest!

    Re: Linux Format

    I got a few issues of Linux Format when it first came out. I gave up on it in the end because it never told me anything I didn't know. I just get Linux Journal now.

    Re: Linux Format

    I can't remeber if it was Linux Journal or Linux Format who had a massive Linux in Education article early this year. They had many valid points including (my favorite) why do no schools actually teach computers? Why do they teach what used to be called office skills and call it ICT when almost no real knowlege about computers, how they work and how to make them work correctly (via programming). Not since computer studies in the 80's has a programming language been taught as part of the curriculum and examined as part of the coursework.
    All valid I feel.

    Re: Linux Format

    ict is not about skills and not about computers it is about correct usage of computers now..

    That falls down instantly when all they get is a choice of Powerpoint and Office.

    Re: Linux Format

    I'll download that and have a play over half term I think...but I can't see most schools changing to that solution if they have already heavily invested in a Windows-based network (with licensing, applications, teacher-training time etc etc). Looks good though...

    Re: Linux Format

    Difference is you have to keep investing in a Windows based network year on year. Linux is a one off migration cost.

    Re: Linux Format

    Unless you read the Micorosft Windows vs Linux cost guides where they begin to put a price on the air you breath whilst using Linux to add 'cost' to a free product. M$ air of course is free!
