Would anyone have any comments as to HowtoForge, SourceForge and
Github ?

There was something on the Internet about Addware and SourceForge?  I
hope that incident is now over.

Where are these systems originate from and/or are hosted from?  EU or

Are HowtoForge and SourceForge managed by the same people, if so who
are they?

HowtoForge, SourceForge and Github

2. HowtoForge

_URL_: http://www.howtoforge.com _Description_:  Provides
user-friendly Linux tutorials about almost every topic.

3. SourceForge.net

_Description_ : It is the largest Open Source applications and
software directory acting as a centralized location for software
developers to control and manage open source software.  Simply the
best site supporting free software.

Linux hands know that SourceForge is an Internet site where source
code (software) is "hammered out" in cooperative development. (Many
open-source programs are developed there.) Now comes HowToForge [1],
where Linux "How-To" guides and other documentation are being created.
Here's an example: "The Perfect Desktop - Part 3: Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy
Eft" [2], a step-by-step guide to installing Ubuntu 6.10, including
screenshots. (See also Part 1 [3], for Fedora Core 6, and Part 2 [4],
for Mandriva Free 2007 distributions.)
