aGNUdomain.net unplugged -- It's official. The edit team at aNewDomain.net is spinning out its first new media site. It's going to be called aGNUdomain.net -- our co-founder John C. Dvorak gets cred for coming up with the name.
It'll be Linux news, views, reviews, teardowns, Android rooting, open source advice, all flavors of Linux for the geeks who love open source. And we have a ton of great ones on our team, founded by Dvorak, Gina Smith, Dr. Jerry Pournelle and 70+ vets of the edit team that relaunched BYTE two years ago and turned about to create aNewDomain.net.
The site at the agnudomain.net url will be up soon. In the meantime, this aGNUdomain unplugged site will let you watch as we start putting material and staff together for our launch. And if you're interested in geeking up with us, shoot Ant or Eric a note on Google +. We're always looking for great writers, podcasters, and vidcasters who are open about their love of open source.
In the meantime, we thought we'd say, Hello World! Here's a tech tutorial we found on YouTube via JTRtoday on how to write a simple Hello World program using the GNU C++ compiler for Ubuntu. Enjoy. This tutorial employs an older version of Ubuntu -- 10.04 -- but it's still relevant. The narrator is using its nano text editor to do it. Great work from JTRtoday.

Here's a video intro of Eric Finkenbiner talking Android and aNewDomain.net from Rangoon. It'll give you a flavor of what you're in for.
And here's an Ant Pruitt video hosting a bunch of smartphone photographers on his popular Google+ hangout show, Point and Shoot with Ant Pruitt.
