Hello - Linux neophyte coming by to learn


Just wanted to posted a greeting here.

My name is Lance, and I'm very new to Linux. I've come from a Windows world, and my new job gives me the opportunity to learn new things in the Linux world as well!

I look forward to learning how to leverage Linux to its fullest potential. I have so much to learn, and will be lurking often. :-)

Welcome to LQ.

This place helped me a lot when I started with Linux.

Here are some useful references: It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.
