Welcome to Horneker Online
Celebrating 20 Years Online

Horneker Online is a website that is about:

  1. Linux with support for multiple distributions.
  2. The promotion of free (as in liberated) software, hardware and technologies.
  3. Digital arts and entertainment, with a purpose. (That purpose will be apparent as the website develops.)
  4. Most of all, the website is about free thinking, i.e. to be liberated from the influence of social media in everyday life.

This website supports multiple distributions with PCLinuxOS being the primary distribution supported here. Though Fedora is supported here, this website is not affiliated, endorsed or sponsored by the Fedora Project, the CentOS Project or Red Hat, Inc.

These pages have always been hand coded with HTML. Currently Bluefish is the editor used for handcoding pages using HTML 5 and CSS 3 standards, and development of this website is done on a HP/Compaq 8510p running a current official release of PCLinuxOS.

Recent Changes

Pages on this website have been updated for late 2017. Also, the Multimedia and Gaming page is now part of the Downloads page. Also, Lakeshore Linux is the new name for my Linux distribution.

Lakeshore Linux development has been moved to SuSE Open Build Service. Normally used to build RPM and Debian packages for the mainstream distributions, the service can now be used to create ISO images, as well as virtual machine images for VirtualBox, QEMU, and Docker, as the Kiwi builder has its own repository and libraries there.

The ISO images are now hosted at the OpenSuSE download servers in its own directory, so no longer is a login required to download ISO images.

Despite that, PCLinuxOS will be the primary distrbution for Linux support.
