the voice is real smooth. im a noob, so i dig the fact he's not talking down at me because i don't already know how to do this...not to say that's the norm!

I'm not a gamer and didn't know this was available, but I will be sure to let my friends that are know about this.

this is a good format for people to learn, Is this part of a larger series? What distro are you running, Fedora? I hadn't thought of launching the console from the explorer, so I spend a lot of time using cd to get to the right folder. thanks,

Nice, but it's not clear to me if CEDEGA works with any Windows Game or only with translated ones

u sound like Johnny Knoxville tho which i found it very cool haha :D


I'm new to linux. I've been using it for everything for more than two months now and it's been a long time since I saw windows on my maching. This is the first video I've seen since I joined this site and I can say it's awesome! Keep up the good work. Helpful stuff like these tutorials are like a blessing to some of us.

Thank you, and long live linux.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

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.

Kudos and Thanks for Bruce
