Weekend Link Roundup : Week 2

Written by Mark Sanborn: Jan 26, 2008

Top 20 Linux Apps for 2007 - A great list of Linux apps you might need. I personally don’t like Amarok, but that is because I don’t like a “media managment” type music player. I like the simple playlist random play style.

BackTrack 3 Beta Just Released - My favorite Linux security distribution is now in version 3. I can’t wait to try this out. The previous releases have been the best security distros I have used.

3 Ways To Access Linux Partitions (ext2/ext3) From Windows - If you dual boot with Linux you probably have a need to read/write to Linux hard drives from within windows. I was thinking about writing this same article on my blog but I noticed it was recently written so here is a link.

Microsoft Says Vista More Secure Than XP, OSX and Linux - This one is actually funny, Microsoft claims their Visa OS is more secure than Linux and OSX. Remember last time Bill bragged about the security of his OS? A hacker found a vulnerability the very next day.

Internet ‘96 - A nice article taking us back in time. What did the web look like in 1996? Kind of looks like the websites I made in the 7th grade.

Easy as Pie - Working with a Database - If you are new to MySQL or would like to give it a shot this article has the basics.

Free Advanced DHTML Color Picker - For the webdesigners, this looks like a nice DHTML color chooser.

Billy is a lightweighted no nonsense audio player - So weighing in at 665kb, Billy is the lightest weight media player that I have ever seen that functions exactly the way want it to. With intuitive hotkeys and no nonsense bloat I have to recommend you try this out.
