April edition of Tectonic Magazine on the streets

By   |  April 19, 2005

The launch issue of Tectonic Magazine – Africa\’s first-ever free and open source software magazine – is out and kicking up a storm. The response to the magazine has been hugely encouraging, says editor Alastair Otter.

\”From the moment we made the magazine available we have been inundated with extremely positive feedback,\” says Otter. \”Clearly the South African market is ready for a dedicated open source magazine. Unfortunately the only magazines on Linux, free software and open source available locally are imported and prohibitively expensive. The most common response we\’ve had to date has been how the magazine is well worth the cover price.\”

In this edition of the magazine:
– Build your own Voice over IP server with instructions from Mr Asterisk Africa, Steve Davies of Connection Telecom, and cover CDs donated by OpenVoice!

– Walk through OpenOffice.Org 2\’s hottest new features with South African OpenOffice.Org\’s evangelist Craig Adams!

– Read the awesome interview with Jay \”LinuxKid\” Klepacs, creator of Peanut Linux (renamed aLinux just days after we went to print!)

There\’s just so much in our first issue that we won\’t even mention the hot news, the how-tos or the cool tools.
