The very day this magazine goes to print, Fedora 18 is enjoying its official release. I have watched the first official reviews come online gradually over the course of the day, as they always do with such events. The extensive Linux blog and tweet engine is always waiting for the next big topic, and it is always ready to lend some content space for anything new.

Science fiction authors and high-tech visionaries dream of a future where humans and computers communicate in ordinary English. A new cloud-based tool brings that future a little closer.
Zorin OS 6.1 and FreeBSD 9.1
The Zorin operating system was created for Windows users who want to transition easily to Linux. Zorin includes a Look Changer program that allows you to change the user interface between the look and feel of Windows 7, XP, and Vista, or even Mac OS X, Ubuntu Unity, or Gnome 2. With Zorin, you can operate in a familiar environment without worrying about malware, viruses, and other security threats.
