"Brain Trust" For Linux Journal Weekly Newsletter From Kamal

Submitted by Kamal Wickramanayake on August 9, 2007 - 07:31

One of the blog entries Kamal wrote some time back was selected as the "Brain Trust" of Linux Journal Weekly Newsletter in its August 01, 2007 issue.

The interesting write up was about making music with the computer keyboard without using any external peripheral. By following a very minimal number of steps, the write up highlighted installing and running freely available software (vkeybd - a virtual keyboard, timidity - software synthesizer) to play a large number of musical instruments (in fact, no limits to the number).
