Tonight LIVE on
www.thelinuxshow.com At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; have another interesting show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of
the last few (several) weeks. In particular we will discuss the news about the plethora of PDA's and consumer grade appliances that are starting to see the light of day.

In Segment Two- Running Applications Under Wine
Tonight we start a new era in the FIVE year history of The Linux Show. Actually, we are going BACK to an old role that we had during our first couple years. Back in the early days we did a large number of product reviews. As the popularity of Linux grew there was an explosion of Linux Information Web Sites doing product reviews. Soon there were a whole bunch of people doing reviews. S0, TLS started to take on its present political and news roles, and we stopped doing regular reviews.

Tonight we return to our role of providing reviews of products as a regular part of our schedule. The initial thread we will be following is the wide assortment of programs available to Linux users using Wine the Unix Windows Emulator. Tonight Kevin Hill will discuss the process of getting Wine set up properly on your Linux Machine. In subsequest weeks we will discuss several different applications.

Other opinions are welcome at GeekCast. If you would like to join us on the show, check our IRC Chat(irc.thelinuxshow.com #linuxshow).

Remember tune in at 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.
