Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Have a look at the Ubuntu documentation. It's pretty complete. At this link you can find a 'Getting started' guide, explaining the basics. Also Google is a good resource to find documentation. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

Here are my favorite three:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

Not Ubuntu oriented, but more general. Helps you get to grips with your best friend: the console

Enjoy and welcome to Linux!

When people say they are new to linux that often means they are fairly well versed in another os (Windows?) like I was when I started playing with linux.

Here are my two favorite documents that I saved hoping to help someone with this exact question.


DOS to UNIX commands:

Linux System Administrators Guide

easy guide

There is nun such but there is less hard ones.I assume you mean the command line, not graphics.
You can use the gui to do most things that you might do on 'windows' (how much dos is left or accessible on Wndows 7?) but what do you want to do ? There is no easy way; languages are different. Try 'vimtutor' on a console to learn vi, etc.


Fred.
