On Nuxified.org we provide resources on key open source technologies in belief that open source plays a crucial part in empowering individuals, improving society, and creating a better future.
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 Nuxified.org we are about to celebrate this trait throughout the month February of this year, in the form of a competition.
Vista is out and the community of GNU/Linux enthusiasts are up on their feet trying to persuade everyone that instead of going with the flow and upgrading to Vista, we should upgrade to GNU/Linux.

The fact is there are more and more of so called GNU/Linux "fanboys" and enthusiasts every day, not less and less. Expect numbers to grow constantly.
The first founding members of Nuxified.org registered as early as 19th December 2005 and the "pre-launch" thread was created on 20th December 2005. These were the first signs of birth of a new Free Software and GNU/Linux support site in the Free Software web universe. I can still remember the IRC discussion that led to the decision to start a new site, and the excitement that usually accompanies new startups.
The official channel for Nuxified.org has been moved from #nuxified (which still remains registered, but forwarded) to #tuxhacker on irc.freenode.net port 6667, a site independent GNU/Linux support channel which already has a growing community that we can participate in and benefit from. We are still allowed to mention and talk about Nuxified.org when appropriate, but the channel itself is not necessarily endorsing either of the sites which recommend it, hence its independence.
Zenwalk is a lightweight desktop oriented Slackware based GNU/Linux distribution that aims to be fast and user friendly. It is still quite new, but the growth, as well as the progress of development, has been pretty fast so far. I've taken a hike with the latest release, Zenwalk 4.0, and here's what I can say about it.
