SLAMPP Live DVD
This month's DVD includes the innovative SLAMPP Linux, a one-stop server system for small offices and home networks. SLAMPP, which runs Live on the DVD without installation, comes with a pre-configured collection of tools for serving up HTTP, FTP, SSH, DHCP, and email. You'll also find several popular programming languages and a sophisticated collection of developer tools. The Webmin graphic admin utility offers easy management of SLAMPP services, and a sensible selection of desktop applications, including OpenOffice 3.1, Blender 2.49, and Totem 2.26.1 round out the set.
