what does "distribution" mean?
That's it. What does "distribution" mean? My Acer computer, on which I have linux linpus lite, comes with very little documentation and while I have a physics BA and have had exposure to technology, my knowledge of linux is just about zip. Is there a good place to start? As you can see, this question about the word "distribution" is a razor thin top of an enormous iceberg of ignorance. I should be able to eat into it if I can just get a good source of introductory information.
Thanks a lot.
