LQ gets a voluminous amount of (to any) "novice" questions and many duplicates
so here's more of some quick links from *me to you* best wishes and have fun.


Going to keep it short and simple it's up to you how deep to go Untitled.png
May not always know what we want? But, should always want what we don't know...


You've(1) decided to make(2) a choice(3) for freedom(4) and at a good time(5) too, in my more than fifteen years with it I've watched GNU\Linux(6) change to be usable by anyone so enjoy; more importantly search(8) answers(9) before posting questions as-well put more info(10) then if your problem gets solved [inform] plus how for the sake of others. And, that's all I'm going to say outside of comments but infinite-possibilities—so-long (paronomasia intended.)


  1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Why you should back up your files (and\or configs)
  2. Wikipedia — Live CD (or USB or other)
  3. Distrowatch — Distribution category — Live Medium — "Sorted by popularity" you decide (also from Linux magazines or distro sites plus try libraries &c
  4. Free as in Freedom — Richard Stallman's Crusade for Free Software — manybooks.net
  5. Debian User Forums — How to Help Someone use a Computer
  6. Top pick of searching http://www.tldp.org(7) for 'what is Linux'
  7. The Linux Documentation Project
  8. University of South Carolina — Bare Bones 101: A Basic Tutorial On Searching The Web
  9. How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
  10. E.g: like your PC or hardware's model number defined by Computer Hope .com and at a command prompt:
    Code:
    man uname
    uname -a
    (FreeBSD Man Pages)
    (10) additionally more info on the problem at hand, what you did, error codes+++

Happy Hacking
P.s:(11)want to mention the joy I had
trying many, many distros plus window managers and think it's vital. . .


CLI is the best but I also love how bloatware rhymes with cycles to spare.

    Matrix(*) pill.

    Sometimes Wifi firmware (+other) is not 'open' (or $upported by freedom) so you'll need "non-free\"opened drivers (some distros try for only free (maybe due to reverse-engineering legalities(?)) but) If happens another device to get drivers transferred will help via CD\USB\SD\local-device-to-device-connection\etc plus can help generally for searching topics if your main system goes down. Ethernet can almost always help to download the drivers as well. I've used Debian or based-upon-distros more often so: https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware-(/non-free/firmware/)

    Another few things to mention if you use a 64-bit PC use a 64-bit OS (IMHO) and http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5042929 with http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/...yer-linux.html plus http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post5086665 also http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/grub-2.html as-well http://www.howtogeek.com/149254/if-i...install-linux/ fun http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...lp-4175489581/ I guess http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm always find updated-info if links don't die or *I don't update.

    P.s: (again,) why do we recommend certain distros? They're free to try and it's up to you! (some may work easier and\or better with your hardware or\and willingness)

    Like snowboarding (most) Linuces easy learning curves (WHISTLEwhistle) can get steep depending on what you want to do.

    Don't want to put this but I will: Virtualbox (+ +) run operating-systems in Linux and (see what you will)

    I have found a better way, knowledge!

    (Drag a finger to highlight me and more...)
