GET A FREE SHELL ACCOUNT ONLINE.A shell is an utility from where you can access Linux/*Nix servers from any where and execute the commands/scripts etc. This post is for the users who are new to linux/Nix and want to feel/work on the Linux without installing on the system. “Rootshell.be“ is free online BSD(Berkeley Software Distribution) server where you can request a shell account and explore your self. There are so many free shell providers on net but most of the servers/service providers will not give you free account simply, you have to prove your self to them that you are not a spamer and you are really in need of shell account to explore Unix. Here are some advantages: No need to install any unix systems. Good for beginers. Some disadvantages: You can work on only limited commands provided by the system administrator. Require any SSH clients(such as Putty) and internet connection. Here are the links from where you can get your free Shell accounts rootshell.be (I personally used their service and it’s preaty good) http://www.red-pill.eu/freeunix.shtml Please comment on this so that I can improve the blog quality.

DISTRO’S.This is my first post on Distro’s. To discuss about Distributions, there is a lots and a lots of information about them which is beyond this blog. But I will try to cover as much good and best distros in the market on weekly basis. To start with.. what is a Distro actually?A “Linux distribution” (also called GNU/Linux distribution by some vendors and users) is a member of the family of Unix-like software distributions built on top of the Linux kernel. A distro some times refferd as “Distribution” or “Flavor“. For General public purpose(like Ubuntu & Fedora). For Corporate purpose(like Cisco Linux & Oracle Linux). For Regionality purpose(like swecha Linux for People whose mother tongue is Telugu). For Basic routing purpose(like Linux router project). A distro is nothing but linux kernel(in general it is considerd as core of operating system)+Applications(such as mail clients,servers, browsers office suite etc). Suppose if we say Redhat linux it is equal to Linux kernel developed by linus torvalds + Applications developed by Redhat people.For your information here are some details about Distro.There are more than 500 Distro’s in Linux followed by Unix with 150 flavors then with Windows around 50Please keep an eye on this session to see coming Distro’s.
