PHP, Perl, MySQL web programming tutorials, howtos for beginners and novice users

Posted on in Categories Apache, FAQ, Howto, Linux, MySQL, UNIX last updated June 6, 2007

The motto of this site is learn with pictures, not words:

In Pictures tutorials began as part of a research study we conducted for the U.S. Department of Education. The goal: to make it easier for people with learning disabilities to learn computer subjects.

As part of the study, we created simple, illustration-based tutorials. Everyone who tested them–not just people with learning disabilities–said the new tutorials enabled them to learn faster and easier than conventional text-heavy books.

The site offers tutorials on common Linux web programming subject:
=> PHP

=> Perl

=> MySQL

Great work! (Thanks to [email protected] for a hat tip)

Why use GPL version 3 – Why upgrade from GPL 2 to GPL 3 ?

Posted on in Categories Beyond nixCraft, FAQ, GNU/Open source, Links, Linux, News last updated June 5, 2007

Version 3 of the GNU General Public License will soon on the horizon. Richard Stallman the father of GPL, GNU project and FOSS activist / hacker recently explained why you should upgrade from GPL 2 to GPL3:

First of all, it is important to note that upgrading is a choice. GPL version 2 will remain a valid license, and no disaster will happen if some programs remain under GPLv2 while others advance to GPLv3. These two licenses are incompatible, but that isn’t a serious problem.

When we say that GPLv2 and GPLv3 are incompatible, it means there is no legal way to combine code under GPLv2 with code under GPLv3 in a single program. This is because both GPLv2 and GPLv3 are copyleft licenses: each of them says, “If you include code under this license in a larger program, the larger program must be under this license too.” There is no way to make them compatible. We could add a GPLv2-compatibility clause to GPLv3, but it wouldn’t do the job, because GPLv2 would need a similar clause.

Why Upgrade to GPL Version 3
