Linux Journal Issue #164/December 2007

The December issue of Linux Journal focuses on Linux-based notebooks. If you haven't yet experienced the joy of a finely tuned, preloaded Linux laptop, crack open James Gray's notebook buying guide to find yours. Once your notebook is purring like a kitten, make it snarl with this issue's wide selection of articles on maximizing its functionality. See Ben Martin's article setting up an on-line encrypted backup scheme, Federico Kereki's piece on getting wireless devices without native Linux support working with NDISwrapper and Surdas Mohit's how-to on making your notebook a triple-boot superstar.

Have an older notebook collecting dust? While Dan Sawyer argues that you should make it a multitrack recorder, Joseph Quigley says make it a server.

Had enough of notebooks for now? Turn your attention to our interview with Sean Moss-Pultz of the OpenMoko Project, whose goal is to create the world's best open mobile devices. Or, see what our world-class columnists have to say this month: Reuven Lerner connects Web apps to Facebook; Dave Taylor creates a command-line calculator app; Doc Searls observes geek-driven changes to the traditional corporation; and Marcel Gagné (who else would?) taunts you with glorious ASCII games from your childhood.

We hope you enjoy the notebook issue, and as always, we welcome your feedback.
