Linux Basics: Useful Beginner Information

(1/6) > >>

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.

+1, excellent info.  ~Scott

Fantastic resource, give this guy some rep points folks :)

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.


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