Sudhian Media has posted part 2 of their "The Shuttle XPC and Linux Revolution" series

In Part II of the series we will take you deeper into the use of Linux on a Shuttle XPC, showing you some more system skills to make life under Linux easier and then take a look at the use of the Shuttle as a multimedia player under Linux. We'll talk about tarballs and kernel compilation, shell commands, accessing Windows disks under Linux, configuring s/pdif sound, playing CD audio, ripping CDs to different formats, using streaming audio and video and Macromedia Flash, and how to watch DVDs and other digital video formats. Finally, we'll show you how to use your spare CPU cycles to contribute to the Sudhian Media folding@home team! By the end of this article you will hopefully be convinced that you don't need Microsoft to enjoy surround-sound digital entertainment on your PC!
