What is Linux? We asked the question, and sent our reporter down into the depths of the OS to find out the answer.
But we didn’t stop there. We got a full Ubuntu system running on a Nexus 7, played games on Steam and chatted with Jacon Kaplan-Moss. As usual, we’ve got some great ways to spruce up your Linux system with tutorials ranging from building a smart TV with a Raspberry Pi to command-line music management.
Programmers can delight in Django or revel in Ruby in our coding academy. Plus: System administration, build a router, Fedora 18 tested and much more.
Double plus - on the awesome DVD: Fedora 18, CrunchBang!, UberStudent, code from the magazine and the LXF bookshelf.
All this and more, in Linux Format 169 – the 'What is Linux really?' issue!
