What to do now?


Hi...i'm a newbie to linux.....i have just installed rh9...updated everything...installed the programs that i like and all that good stuff.....now i dont know what to do with my linux machine....i have two computers...one XP and of course one linux......i don't really know what to do with the linux machine now that it is up and running. I can't really get into programming because i wouldn't have the time to study/do it because of school....any suggestions would be nice...

Join the opensource community.

Ask your self what could you contribute to opensource community.

If not programming, maybe graphic, you can learn Gimp thoroughly then submit nice graphic to art.gnome.org or kde-look.org . Or write documentation. There is a lot things to do. Design websites. Etc.

Opensource needs your help.

well maybe this sounds strange, but it's even possible to use your linux machine for daily use! With programs like konqueror, Opera, Open Office, The Gimp, KMail etc etc it's a fully functional workstation as network administrator, I made all workstations at the company linux machines! Linux is not just meant for servers or development
