[ The Linux Project Forum ] [ Linux Project Pages ]

Linux is constantly evolving. Aside from the work that is always being done on the operating system itself by kernel developers all over the world, there are also dozens of side projects -- projects to port Linux to new hardware, projects to provide better documentation for Linux, projects to create new applications to make Linux more functional and useful.

If you know of a web page for a Linux project that is not listed above, please let us know, and we will add it to this page as soon as possible.
