I will certainly consider google.

However, I was wondering if there was a single site that can assist in this. Need not be too much. Just the basic 20 to 50 words. Thanks.

Well, The Linux Documentation Project (http://www.tldp.org/ ?) might have explainations at the start of each HOWTO.

ummm...these arent buzzwords.

A buzzword is a word that sounds important, but doesnt mean anything.

GNU is an actual organization,
the Linux kernel is an actual kernel

nope, no lies here.

Ok, in that case would technical terms be a more appropriate word ? Thanks.

Jargon! And, speaking of, try finding the Jargon Files online. That helps with a lot of terminology and more. And I have to make another plug for 'wtf' - your system may have it or you may be able to install it. It's part of Slack's BSD games. You could just grep the file, but I still love it.
