Linux Game of the Month : PySol

Filed under

If you asked a number of people (who know nothing about computers) to walk around and look over people's shoulders to discover the most popular computer application, they might be tempted to say "cards", specifically solitaire.

The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
