"To advertise the efforts of http://www.dict.org and to provide
the means by which any Linux user regardless of experience, can
install a functional dictionary system either for local or network
"I have been using Linux exclusively as my operating system for
over three years now. One of the very few things I miss about "that
other operating system" is the easy availability of cheap or even
free versions of commercial encyclopedias and dictionaries."
"So when I installed a recent version of S.u.S.E. linux I was
both surprised and happy to find a package called Kdict had been
installed on my machine. Reading the documentation that came with
the package revealed that the program was only a front end to
another program, and that though it is possible to install a
dictionary server locally, if I wanted to do so I would have to get
everything else I need from the Internet."
