We've got an exciting year planned for TUX!
TUX's 2005 editorial calendar features an all inclusive line up of articles about work, home, and play for today's Linux consumer. You can look forward to easy to understand tutorials, insightful hardware and software reviews, enlightened opinion, useful tips and tricks, and in-depth exploration of the tools computer users need every day. Best of all, our style is hands-on, welcoming and non-threatening, speaking in a jargon-free style that everybody can understand.
In 2005, look forward to these features:
PREMIERE ISSUE, March/April 2005, The GETTING ORGANIZED Issue
Can't see your desktop through the clutter? Actually, we meant your virtual desktop but maybe TUX can help there too. Using the power of your Linux desktop, we'll show you how to juggle multiple calendars, synchronize your Palm organizer, create mailing labels, and even make some sense of all those open windows on your virtual desktops. Since all work and no play makes... well, you know how it goes. On that note, TUX will even show you how to clear the clutter made by all those MP3 music files and digital photos you've been accumulating. Kick back and relax. With the March 2005 issue of TUX in hand, you've got it all under control. Special note: TUX's premier issue will hit the newsstands February 1 (the magazine will be titled the March/April issue simply for the sake of bookstores and newsstands).
May 2005, The HOME ENTERTAINMENT Issue
Welcome to your Linux home entertainment center. Use your PC to watch TV, record programs, and more. This month, TUX looks at MythTV, Freevo, and other personal video recorders (PVRs). We'll also take a few Jukebox servers out for a spin so you can play music anywhere in your house from the comfort of your PC. And did we mention radio? Movies, music, and more, in the May 2005 issue of TUX.
June 2005, The LIVING WITH WINDOWS Issue
Is yours a house (or office) divided? With Linux PCs here and Windows PCs there? In the June 2005 issue, TUX shows you all you need to know to share files and folders between these different systems. We'll also look at tools that make running Windows on Linux (and vice versa) easy.
July 2005, The MONEY Issue
If money makes the world go 'round, this is a well rounded issue of TUX as we explore financial applications in the Linux world. We'll cover home finance programs that provide simple cheque book functions as well as those that do it all. Join us as we explore expense trackers, stock tickers, and business-ready accounting software. Ka-Ching!
August 2005, The EDUCATION Issue
TUX goes back to school in the August 2005 issue. Linux systems are a great solution for cash strapped schools, but they offer much more than inexpensive, stable, and secure systems. Kids will find software to challenge their minds and have fun doing it. From Linux at school, to educational programs, to educational games, it's Linux for kids of all ages.
September 2005, The SWITCH Issue
Finally, it's time to help those in need. Yes, we're talking about people running something other than Linux. Those poor unfortunate souls who deal with adware, spyware, and system crashes every day of their lives. TUX will look at great Linux business tools, live Linux CDs (to introduce your friends and family), and transitional applications (Linux programs that are available for Windows) so that even if they continue to run something else, they can at least get some of the benefits of Linux.
October 2005, The LINUX AUTOMATION Issue
Whatever happened to computers making our lives easier and giving us more free time? Maybe it's because they weren't running Linux. This October 2005, TUX will show you how to put your Linux system to work while you sleep! Let Linux take care of business and watch over things while to tend to other, more important things. In this issue, TUX will look at home security, webcams and video surveillance, maybe even a robot or two.
November 2005, The PERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS Issue
As the end of 2005 approaches, talk is hot again and Linux makes it easy. The year 2000 has come and gone, but picture phones are finally here, instant messaging is everywhere, free long distance is a reality, and everybody is reaching out and touching somebody somewhere. Get into the instant messaging, Voice Over IP, text messaging, and just plain talking action in the November 2005 issue of TUX.
December 2005, The LINUX ON THE ROAD Issue
It's December 2005 and people are on the move, whether to visit family for the holidays or jetting off to somewhere warmer. Either way, you'll need to take your Linux computer along. Don't have one yet? Not sure of the tools you'll need? Let TUX show you the best tools for Linux notebooks, network applications, WiFi, Bluetooth, and everything else you need to stay connected when you are away from home. We'll take a close look at personal digital assistants, cell phones, and much more when TUX hits the road.
