    Hey, this is ditto of the last months(April) section of essentials.


    AFAIK, it should be FF 3 Alpha 1
    NO FEDORA CORE ??????:mad::mad:
    IMO, the contents r useless...except Photoshop CS2 (anyways, its trial) and Office SP3 and the Ebooks. Most of these r shareware and those that r freeware r so small and hopeless that they arent of much use :(

    Fastrack to PHOTOSHOP eh? There r more tuts on net..anyways, thats fine.
    I'll drop this ISSUE:evil:

    Wow, Solid contents after so many months. Looking forward to May Issue.

    I am not at all disappointed with FC5 as I have got both the i386 and x64 versions and have installed both of my computers!

    I know that Photoshop CS2 is a repeat, but it made sense because it ties in with the Fast Track.

    Subscribers and regular buyers will justifiably be a little miffed, but we need to think of the first time/rare buyers as well.

    As for FC5, you should know by now that we aren't too fond of loading up the entire DVD with a linux distro, which leaves us little space for other content.

    The contents are very good. But still no mobile shootout. Its been years. When are we going to see it again. And I mean a full scale shootout.

    The look of forum is very good. But the CD contents are disappointing. The fast track Photoshop may tempt us, but NO.

    I really liked the previous php look of the forum.
    This one is pretty confusing.
    Also, the list of threads I had subscribed to in php version are gone in this vBulletin version.
    Now, I'm gonna have to resubscribe.

    Mag contents are good.
    CD/DVD contents are just ordinary and most of them are repeated.
    BTW , good to see forum working once again with a new face.

    The May issue looks terrific.
    Please, please.... give more space to Agent 001.
    And do something about the content of CD?DVD.
    I have seen a lot of repetition.
    And think about your student readers too. It will be terrific if you could include some programming know-how about C++ etc.
