Cool Fedora 13 LiveDisc-New to Linux

New Note 4

I DL'ed Fedora 13 LiveDisc, I didnt want to install anything on my W$ HD. After learning how to use it, and if I like it, I will buy a 2nd HD to install to.

I was reading an article on Jeremys Blog,

click this link to read more.

I am new to Linux, I have used only W$ in the past.

I agree with forjer on this subject:,

Jeremy, congratulations for your initiative, it would be nice to see it quickly become a reference in the Linux user land, like Linux Questions, and others, already are.

Second point, is a suggestion I’d like to place here to you.

We, Linux advocates, know that it’s important to increase our user base, and that can only be done by bringing in people from the M$ world.

Like it happened to me, when I first got involved with Linux, the main difficulty I felt, was to get familiar with the hundred new terms, expressions, definitions, concepts, etc, that are used at Linux, but not in Windoze. For many people, this is a let down and they get out. Linux literature is too much spread, diffuse, and mostly deprecated.

I think that the Linux desktop distro world, would have all to gain by creating a task force, dedicated to prepare a specifically oriented, targeting windoze new comers, with very clear, succint, well done, and attractive kind of Wiki, to facilitate the adaptation of those people to ower way of speack and do things.

I would be even more ambitious on this task, and would then invite all distro owners to cooperate, placing it in a very visible place in their distro sites, where they could have the opportunity to adapt some of the literature, to the specifics of their distros.<

I am having a bit of a time trying to learn Fedora.

I had installed VirtualBox, (I'm running W$ 7 32bit), with Slax, then Ubuntu, and seemed to have problems. Ubuntu would not load and Slax loaded but wouldnt work correctly.

Sorry to take so much space, I'm trying to learn this.
Thx, Bill

It wasn't really a question so much as it was an article on how to make it easier to use and understand for the new user like me
