    This month, we look at the best of the web. We've browsed for a long time, and now is the time to browse the best! From search to email, and travel to real estate and more, we've chosen the best and presented our findings for you - in our Web Awards.

    DVDs
    We have two netbook distros and the Android live CD on this month's Digit DVDs. Feature-packed with design goodies, you'll find Dreamweaver CS4, Corel X4 Suite and Autodesk 3DS Max among numerous other software for you to try out.

    Fast Track to Wireless Technologies
    All you ever wanted to know about wireless technologies. Carrier waves, modulation techniques, broadcasting, cellular telephony, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more - all explained in detail. Grab a copy now.

    The Preview is below, the feedback section is over at http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=66. Instead of telling us things like "we love this article" and "this whole section sucks", give us specifics. Also throw praise and brickbats about the visuals, language, the snippets, the links to the website, the design, fonts.

    I liked DISC2 contents.

    One good thing I'm observing for a few months now, you guys are providing more(90%) freewares now.

    Good move.

    ^Yeah, we thought so too, that focusing on freeware was a good idea. Then we got mails using all caps begging us to bring back the trials. So we did. It's a 60-40 ratio or so, with only the better trials being included. We've not reduced the number of freeware for doing that though. The tools sections are sorted in alphabetical order, so when it goes back to A after Z, trials start and freeware ends.

    ^There is no official Moblin stable release yet. It's a two week old beta release, there are beta releases every week. Moblin has a great UI, but very little functionality. If you are planning to install a great Linux distro for your netbook, go for gOS.

    @fieldgunner... Downloaded Anarchy, it was huge, mebbe next time...
    @phuchungbhutia, you pointed it out before there was an official build, it was just something people had put together. This one is mostly for developers, but just might do a few things on a netbook or something.
