This manual is the first in a 4 part series in using some basic command line applications.
In this part of the series we focus on installing SCREEN, a terminal application for the Linux command line. Screen enables you to run several command line applications (in different shells) at the same time. ( And leave them running even if you disconnect from the shell, so you can re-connect later).
You can use screen on the “local” command line window on your linux system. ( working locally on the computer) or via an SSH connection if you have setup an SSH-server as we explained earlier on in the KWTV Screencasts : Episode one and Episode two

In this episode we will be talkingabout installing Windows XP on an “average” users system AND installingas many Free and/or open source applications as you can. The goal here is to create a ‘free’ system that gives the user a maximal amount of productivity WITHOUT having to resort to illegal copies, cracks or hacks to get things done. The point of this podcast is to show people that their are plenty of alternatives to commonly known (expensive) applications. If you know where to look you can have a ‘free’ Xp installation where the only money you hand over , is the one for your XP licence. All the rest .. is free.
