Weekend Project: Learn Linux

Posted on October 9, 2006. Filed under: Education |

The Linux Online web site presents a detailed, online tutorial for folks looking to switch from a commercial OS to the open source Linux.

“We have developed this course for one basic reason: To bring the newcomer to Linux to the point where you can, using Linux, do everything that you do with MS Windows and much more. Due to the fact that Microsoft, enjoying an illegal monopoly, has its operating system installed on 90% of the world’s computers, this course is mainly aimed at people who want to migrate to Linux from Microsoft products.”

We’re fans of Ubuntu ’round these parts, and this tutorial uses Debian GNU/Linux, but for ‘nixy n00bs looking to stop padding Gates/Jobs’ pockets, this looks like a good place to start.
