Linux For Beginners


Puppy Linux has a great intro to Linux for people with no Linux exposure.

"Linux For Beginners"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/LinuxBeginners

"Ians Teach yourself Puppy in 24 mins"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/Ians

"The Linux commandline"
http://www.goosee.com/goosee/linux/ch03/index.html

"About Linux"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/HowToUsePuppy

"More About Linux"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/MoreLinux

The Wikipedia has great set of articles on Linux that serve as a good Introduction.
"This article is about Linux-based operating systems, GNU/Linux, and related topics."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux

"Linux For Newbies"
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Linux_For_Newbies

I was trying to find the thread about creating documentation for people with no Linux experience. The articles above are a good place to start. If a mod can move this to the relevent thread I would appreciate it.

Thanks a lot securehack and craigevil. I am new to linux, and any kind of information that can help me better understand Linux would be great. I grew up where computers aren't really used for anything else except Music, Pr0n, and Surfing. I honestly never heard of Linux until 2 years ago, but my curiosity didn't lead me to Linux until a couple of weeks ago. I really want to learn this, and I'm determined. So far the only thing I can do is navigate (nothing spectacular but it's a start), but I appreciate the help.

I just have one question: How long did it take you guys to get truly familiar with Linux?

Familiar? That really depends on you... everyone has a different learning curve. Since you already have it installed, just play with it... Open a terminal and read man pages try different syntax and find new way's of doing things. That's what makes Linux more enjoyable then windows. But you will come to find as with all things, that, the more you learn about it the more you find you don't know...

Memorize this first:
