Linux Magazine out of the Blocks

The first ever linux magazine in the crazy island of Sri Lanka makes it’s way. The magazine only offers an electronic edition of it. We will be very happy to see a hard copy in the near future as well. Because I don’t enjoy reading PDFs at all for that matter.

 Boom !!! Big mistake I forgot to enterprise the name of it, it’s Babytux Digest. Babytux Team comprises of many Geeks in the known world of Linux in Sri Lanka. To mension few of them,

Arunan Skanthan
Buddhika Siddhisena
Tyrell Perera
Suchetha Wijenayake
Hasmin Abdul Cader
Karthiga Ratnam

And the Magazine was launched at a charming ceremony held at Commens Coffee shop on Wednesday the 5th July. You can download the magazine at it’s official site

The first issue itself introduces a brand new browser software called Flock, an intreging article on Kaffeine, a nice tutorial on InkScape and in tech news: the launch of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (dapper drake) in Sri Lanka

 I downloaded the first Issue and got the permission from one of our senior lectures at IIT to make it available at the IIT Library. So guys at IIT can look forward to it at the library.
