We have some good news. has partnered with C3PC to be their official community support site. Here is an excerpt of the press release:

"Franklin, PA, USA, November 16, 2007: New Ideas Corp. and have announced a partnership to offer community-level software support for Linux-preloaded PCs from C3PC. is a Free Software community that provides forums, blogs, and tutorials that are not only used to support users of Free Software, and any issues they may encounter, but also sets out to educate the community about Free Software.

Ryan Cornmesser, President of New Ideas Corp., states, "We wanted to provide a place for our customers to go, to get quality community-level support without the need to start our own forum. There are already so many great Linux forums already on the internet with great communities behind them."

He continued, "Some of our staff already had a relationship with the community. Already receiving and giving advice on the forum. It just seemed like the perfect fit." -- Read it in whole here and if you digg the news do it here. and are preparing to hold a Free Software gaming tournament. Its purpose is to promote gaming in the Free Software world, on operating systems such as GNU/Linux, and *BSD and show that gaming is not limited to proprietary platforms such as Microsoft's Windows.

We would like to do this in a collaborative and open way so this first announcement serves as a call to everyone who may be interested to join us and help us build this tournament. One of the first things that we need to do is choose which games to include in the tournament and for that we need to set some criteria.

I am pleased to announce a brand new, redesigned, reloaded It in fact is the third version so the "reloaded" title from the Matrix trilogy is quite fitting. ;)

While the old look may have been decent, it featured the old three column layout spread out over the 100% of site's width with elements being in blocks. This was quite traditional, but not anymore as popular and liked in this "Web 2.0" era, and rightly so. The new design isn't blocky, leaves some breeding space on the sides, has larger fonts, is more colorful, less bloated and was designed to provide greater convenience to both new and existing visitors and users.

One of the best things about Free Software of which GNU/Linux is a flagship is its community and the willingness of so many people in it to help each other make their GNU/Linux and Free Software experience better. If something doesn't work, if you don't know how to do something, if you don't know what software you need for a task you want to do, whatever issue you have there is a great chance someone in the community will be not only able, but happily willing to help. On we are about to celebrate this trait throughout the month February of this year, in the form of a competition.
