Have you ever wished you could access your desktop from another computer over the internet? There are many proprietary programs that allow you to do this, but Linux has all the tools you need to accomplish this securely, effectively, and for free. All you need is SSH (included in most Linux distros) and a VNC server. This video explains how to install and configure the software so you can access your desktop from anywhere, even on a windows PC (use PUTTY and TightVNC)
Network configuration can be tricky and I certainly didn't have time in the video to consider different networking hardware setups.
./vncinstall must be run as a root user:
$ su root
# ./vncinstall /usr/local/bin /usr/local/man

This installment deals with using ndiswrapper to use Windows wireless drivers in Linux. Hardware manufacturers often don't release specifications of their products to the open source community, so programs like ndiswrapper become necessary.
This video was created using only free and open software tools: TightVNC, pyvnc2swf, ardour2, jackd, lame, and ffmpeg.

This is a recording of Arch i686 installing on VirtualBox, a virtual machine. I tried to be quick to demonstrate how fast the process can be. This video shows everything from start to finish, from putting the CD in to booting an installed system.
Remember that certain sections of the installation are slow because of the VM, for example, mkinitcpio. On a normal install to a computer, this section doesn't take more than a few moments. To further compare, Arch takes about 2 seconds to start on my computer and if you look close enough, it takes about 5 on this virtual machine. But even with this bottleneck, the install process takes only 2 1/2 minutes!
Also, look at the total installed package size when the Install Packages section comes around - 103MB! This is a bleeding-edge distro!
From here on, you would use the package manager, pacman, to install packages from repositories and setup your computer how you want. Everything you wan and nothing that you don't.
Arch works off the KISS (keep it stupid simple) concept and autoconfigures packages when you install them. If you want to geek it out by compiling and configuring everything yourself, the package manager also supports that too. So, both newcomers and experts alike can appreciate the package manager that makes Arch Linux what it is.

Encrypting files and folders just got easier in Ubuntu 8.04. It's now incorporated into the desktop as standard, giving inexperienced users the powerful security of 2048 bit PGP encryption with a few clicks. Ensure you securely erase the original with something like srm.
