This month in Linux Voice.

Linux is freedom. Freedom is freedom and Microsoft is Microsoft. Microsoft didn't like Linux and tried to destroy it, and Unix is like Linux. Aren't they cousins? And Microsoft said, "A plague upon your house…." But wait, not exactly. Forget everything you learned or, at least, recalibrate. Microsoft once developed and maintained their own version of Unix. In fact, the Unix variant known as XENIX was, for a time, the most popular Unix edition – and the first Unix to enter the PC market. We'll tell you all about XENIX in this month's Linux Voice, and we'll even show you how to try out a later version of the classic XENIX OS in VirtualBox. Elsewhere in this month's Linux Voice, we show you how to call up your favorite song lyrics in the terminal window, and we dive down into ART, an innovative RAW converter and photo image tool.
