Top Ten Linux Related Web Sites - page 2
Geared towards Linux newbies, www.linuxberg.com, from the creators of TUCOWS (The Ultimate Collection of Winsock Software), is a unique and useful Linux software website. Upon entering, the user is prompted to select from a list of approximately 146 mirrors from around the world, ensuring fast downloads to anywhere. This is especially convenient, because, unlike Freshmeat where all you get are links to the applications' home pages, Linuxberg keeps a local copy of every piece of software they carry. In addition, you get ratings of each app (a "five penguin" rating is the best). Every Linuxberg server also houses copies of the most popular Linux distributions, downloadable for free.As if this weren't enough, Linuxberg is also the home of the Linux HOWTO archive, which contains a searchable index of all the Linux HOWTOs and mini-HOWTOs.
