Top Ten Linux Related Web Sites - page 4

Linux.com is the new "catch-all" Linux site from VA Research, intended to be a useful all-round site, as well as providing a good place to get Linux information without using a search engine. This is good to go to for summaries of all the major aspects of Linux on the Web.



This page proves you can make a Linux website about anything. Themes.org is for the true desktop warriors, who ditched Windows because it looked too bland. This site consists of collections of themes (sets of decorative images and colors) for various window managers (Afterstep, Blackbox, Enlightenment, FVWM, KWM, and Windowmaker to be precise), with a few other goodies thrown in. Check it out if you want to explore Linux's configurability, for the best possible look.


Linux Games

Why reboot in order to kick back and have a little fun? Linuxgames.com is a good site about--you guessed it--games in Linux. As well as keeping you up on new titles from Id Software or Loki Entertainment, LinuxGames also hosts other game or game-related web sites.



And last, (but not least) we have www.segfault.org, a truly remarkable website which is hard to describe adequately; is it a test-bed of keen social insight, a thoughtful parody of contemporary hackerdom, or merely a cheap rip-off of Slashdot? Any way you choose to see it, Segfault is good for a laugh (or two). The main format of the site is Onion -like parodies of news items, but relating to Linux only, plus a Slashdot-like comment system. Check it out!
