a lot of information is within the os as man pages, the other information you'll get online.

A complete guide is a tall order, but here are some useful references:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

There is also Ubuntu 10.10 essentials available from linuxtopia. They also have a few other documents which are very interesting. http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/...0.x_Essentials

As you can see there are lots of resources available. I have to say the link kindofabuzz provided does look quite nice too.

Depending on your hardware Ubuntu is fairly easy to install, most hardware is detected upon installation. As far as learning linux you won't learn it until you try it. As far as cost of os it just takes time.

The reason the assumption is made that it is a pain in the but is from the desktop environment in use. I to this day believe that in the case of using gnome, you have to get intricate with scripts, etc. It is not very user friendly straight out the box. I would recommend using kubuntu or get the kde environment installed from the package manager. You will see that once you have done that the transition is seamless. I find KDE to be lot less of a hassle compared to gnome. This does not mean gnome is a bad environment to use, however, if strugling get something to make life easier during the initial stages.

Will keep looking for a guide with pics. All the best

This is maybe off the wall, but if you go to youtube and search for "ubuntu," "ubuntu tutorial," "ubuntu demo," "gnome," "kde," or even "linux" you will find lots of videos. Some will be junk, but some will be quite helpful.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand forum posts.

A lot of it is what you are used to. If you are used to something, anything else can seem difficult when, in actuality,it's not easier or harder, it's just different.

I had to do some work in Windows today and found myself longing for the simplicity of Linux and Fluxbox. I kept trying to right-click to make the applications menu appear and trying to hit my hot keys to start applications.

And I sure wish I could have had multiple workspaces for what I was doing.
