"Christianity and GNU/Linux are not often spoken of in the same sentence. One notable exception is the popular Ubuntu Christian Edition GNU/Linux distribution. Ubuntu CE is a GNU/Linux distribution designed specifically for church environments. It includes the popular and ubiquitous free software packages such as OpenOffice.org that are expected in a modern GNU/Linux distro. It also includes free software packages geared towards church-based users. Another popular free software package included with Ubuntu CE is the free software Bible-study package known as Xiphos. I downloaded it today to give it a test run. In this article, I will give you my impressions of Xiphos.

"First of all, Xiphos is released under version two of the GNU GPL license. This means that any revision to its source code must be released under the same license. This is a wonderful choice because it ensures that Xiphos will continue to be free software as long as the religious community maintains an interest in it."
