You already might have recognized that we have a new Linux writer here at Ghacks. Jack started writing in December and we thought it would be a good idea to create a monthly article compilation of his articles and make them available for download.
The compilation contains all Linux articles of the previous month including all images and links to the original articles. This explains the large size of roughly 8 Megabytes. The format of the compilation is doc which is readable in all operating systems.
Please let us know what you think of this idea. Feel free to download and share the file. You may upload it to your website if you give proper credits. Please do not link to the file directly but to this article instead.
This compilation contains the following articles:
• Abiword: A Lean Word-processing Machine
• Add mp3 support in Fedora 10
• An Illustrated Guide to Installing Ubuntu Desktop
• Choosing the right distribution will ease your migration
• Configuring gtkpod for Music Playback
• Convert .mp3 files to .wav files in Linux
• Connect your iPod to gtkpod
• Connecting to Wireless Networks in GNOME
• Fundamental Differences Between Linux and Windows

We are considering making the compilations available in different formats (pdf for example). It might also be a nice idea to create a page here at Ghacks with links to all compilations and articles.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.
