Click here to get the DVD via BitTorrent

Jedi master the terminal! In an age of advanced GUIs, touch screens and high-definition displays why even consider the 80-character wide text-only terminal option? Control and universality.

Focus your Linux powers to use the full force of a CLI! Plus all this too:

Privacy distros - we roundup the best distros for protecting your details online
Open source P2P - using filesharing for the good of all!
Nginx webserver - Get more from the low-resource webserver on and off the Raspberry Pi
Tiling window managers - Discover how to take control of your windows
MicroPython bots - Build battling radio controlled robots
Pi Compute Module 3 - we look at the new industrial dev board
Dirt Rally - amazing racing comes to Linux
