This isn't really a tutorial, but seemed like the right place to put it.  (Valtam -- go ahead and move post if think it belongs somewhere else.)  Thought might be nice to have a handy list of information sources covering some of the basics in one place.  To Everyone -- feel free to add good sites you've found that might be especially helpful to beginners.

EDIT 7/22/2014:  removed The Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide from list -- seems to no longer work properly as pointed out by Dookus.  Added Linux-Bible to the list after seeing post by NewYorker.

EDIT 3/29/15:  as noted by N4RPS, Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide site is working again, so added back on to the list.

Thanks Scott(0) & Valtam.

These are things I've collected over time that I wish I had when I first started out, so thought they would be handy for newcomers.

N4RPS:
Hello!

The efforts people put forward here are an excellent expression of the concept of the Linux community at its best!
