I'm willing to write tutorials. I think the linux community would benefit greatly to have some common configuration files broken down and explained in more detail.

If you did that, I would kindly kiss your ass
When you do, post back here, as I have subscribed to this thread.
If you need any ideas, a good Samba/XP/roaming profiles would be a good one, since the existing tutorials I've seen are unclear and all over the place

I'm with you, Joe. While I don't go crazy over it, I do believe the English language is taking a beating because of the Net. I'll probably volunteer doing grammar/spelling checks as well in the near future.

Well, outside of being just totally depressing, why did you post?

Hi, yeah I'm kind of new to this forum myself, but I've been doing my best in answering new posts.

First of all: great ideas here guys, especially from Lexen. A video for learning Linux is just what is missing. If I can contribute, I would like that, the only constraint is time and I'm not really a person to go on a video (camera shy).

Anyway, I could probably help with translating from German to English and vice versa. My mother tongue is German and I live in New Zealand, which pretty much makes my bilingual. I also learned a bit of French and Latin at school, but they're too rusty to translate to. Also, who would read tutorials in Latin when English is so much easier :-).

Windoze 95/98/2000/XP

SUSE (a bit. 1 year)
Red Hat (quite a bit more, since I used it for much longer, 3 years)
Fedora (started after Red Hat, but they're similar anyway)
Ubuntu (my favorite distro now, find it has the best support and easiest setup/use)
Debian (use it for my webhosting company, because it's completely free and highly scalable while still relatively easy to use)

Ubuntu (Kubuntu) is my favorite distro yet, because it is the easiest to use (I find). I would recommend Ubuntu for beginners, there are many nice tutorials on ... Oh well, I guess this is not the place to go on about this kind of thing.

I started compiling my own sources, but I think it's a bit overrated. So far, for all that I needed, compiling was (mostly) not necessary. I think it really pays off to learn to use apt-get, yum and the like to keep your system up to date and install programs.
I know quite a bit about them now, so I can probably answer most questions related to using apt-get etc.

I know also quite a bit about installing and configuring Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl and the like. So, I would like to get involved in translating/writing tutorials for related topics.

I am a bit specialised in migrating from Windoze to Linux, but also in combining the two via Samba, Cups. Wine, Cedega, CrossOver Office, VMWare, ...

I'm studying Information Science. My speciality here is Java Programming, PHP/MySQL, database design and a bit of C(++) and Pascal/Delphi, although C and Delphi/Pascal are a bit rusty. I'm also interested in Webdesign, although I think nearly anyone can do that nowadays.
