^We made sure that the contents of the FT does not repeat any of the contents in the previous FT to Open Source, and both the FTs to Freeware. And it has the Linux Distro listing and detailed instructions that people have been wanting for some time now.

Surprised.
I was thinking that a late on preview of August 2009 issue will mean that the magazine will not reach at time this month.

Good work.

But I think the connection section is getting a bit boring. All news news and news.

@vinyasmusic burn CD, or use VirtualBox then install. The actual installation instructions are in the Fast Track - with step by step screenshots.

Is it just me or has the month and year of this issue really not been printed on the cover? I can only find Vol. 9 Iss. 8 and the obvious reference to the Independence day.
