1. Hardware list, vmware host.

In response to the question from the Installing PCLinuxOS video about what hardware was used, I made this short little video with a quick scan of the hardware list in the DrakXtools on the host os Mandriva 2007.1 Quick list is a dual core AMd Athlon XP AM@ 3800+ wth 2 GB DDR2 @ 800 MHz, two sata hds, one 200 GB one 250 GB dual layer dvdrw, NVidia Geforce 6200TC [ 64 bit ] Graphics card.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
