Linux Journal Issue #167/March 2008

The March 2008 issue of Linux Journal focuses on Desktops. This month features an interview by Doc Searls with David Liu, the CEO of Good OS LLC. The gOS is an “Ubuntu-based distro tweaked to run Web apps as if they were deskotp ones”. Our columnists focus on desktop issues as well—Mick Bauer outlines Ubuntu's security features and Marcel Gagné discusses remote desktop sharing. Plus, Jes Hall previews the revolutionary KDE 4 and Willie Walker and Eitan Isaacson discuss desktop accessibility issues.

This month's LJ also features several cool product reviews—Jes Hall on the ASUS Eee PC, Bruce Byfield on IBM's Lotus Symphony and Adam Dutko on Android, the Google Mobile Linux Framework.

As always, there's much more—from Linux video editors to maximizing desktop speed to understanding Google Gadgets. Enjoy the issue!
