Even after writing a half dozen books and several hundred articles, I still find it difficult to know where to start when I'm looking at a new project. Getting the germ of whatever ideas I might have down into something that starts to look and sound intelligent is anything but second nature. Somewhere in my head, there's a jumble of fleeting thoughts, ideas, and concepts, running every which way with no map for me to follow other than some casual mental digging here and there. If you find yourself in the same kind of cerebral jungle, what you and I really need is a mind map.

I think it is time to reveal a nifty little tool that I like to simulate a slow network connection, even without a network. It is called "tc" (think "traffic control") and is present on every modern Linux system. It is part of the "iproute" or "iproute2" package.
Live CDs do a great job of advertising Linux distributions. In addition to general-purpose live CD distributions, there are lots of task-oriented live CDs. Wouldn't it be great if you could carry multiple live CDs on one DVD disc? Nautopia.net has put up a script that you can use to make a custom DVD to boot multiple live CDs.
If you wanted to sum up what's new in this latest release of Linux, you could say that it's a Linux for high-end enterprise users.

Fans of the popular Linux software program have long fretted that software giant Microsoft will attack Linux by claiming the free program violates Microsoft's patents. So far nothing has happened.

Linspire reached a deal earlier this year with Mirus Innovations to offer a line of OEM computers with Linux preinstalled, under the brand name Koobox.
