    Great post Dainis! It’s great to view tutorials in a different medium, I never think to learn via Screencasts usually.

      You’re right – of course such DVD’s are in much higher quality, but this free stuff is for the most of people who want to learn, but don’t want to pay just yet :)

      I should release commercial webdesign CD,DVD’s article as well for my own research and others who are ready to pay for really good stuff.

      Thanks for comment!
