Should be interesting to see what Gizmo thinks of Linux... I know he writes for Windows Secrets which is always funny to see, but alas, with no premium sub, I don't see any of his articles.
EDIT: Just got back from a quick skim... I'll be honest, I had a chuckle that he recommended ClamAV.
After tomorrow, my school lets out for the Winter break, and I get to finally relax. Friday and Saturday I work... meaning on Sunday, I'll be doing some real good work: setting up some AVs in Linux so I can test them all out so we can learn the best ones!

pacman -Syyu life not found in sync db
They neglected to mention Wormux for the games, it's much better then some of the games they got there. Also there was some clone of Battle Chess which i installed for someone which is better than pyChess and such.
Lol, call me old fashioned but Pychess I prefer.
all i see are his favorite cross-platform utils for windows ported to linux
this new tsa is irrelevant to me but i do miss old gizmo newsletter

I know you Linux boys will bash Gizmo for this...but I've got to praise what he's doing...by listing the reliable cross-platform apps on the new Linux section there...the Windows users there would feel better and more 'at home'....not a drastic sudden change for them...
Personally, I think Gizmo is targeting on the Windows 'audience' that has some interest on Linux when he created that section....I don't think it was meant for Linux old-time users like you guys...and in this case, I've got to defend him and say he's done a neat job...
They call me the mysterious one...
my motto is...when it's hot, chill baby
In that sense he has done a good job... but to anyone who's used the system for a while shouldn't be surprised at some of the apps he's got listed have better alternatives lol.
They have better alternatives that are cross platform he just listed some of the most popular. I still can't believe he didn't mention Wormux, Wormux rocks, it's crossplatform to Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows with the Worms alternative for Windows also.
