Trying to get to grips with Linux
on 13 December 2010
If i may reiterate the comments by "Boing Boing" I needed something that removed the mystery of "Linux" and in particular "Ubuntu".
Being a "newbie" to this system i had to come to terms with thinking for myself, having for a long time, being spoon fed by Microsoft. A frustrating drawback i encountered was the the syntax and terminology.
This coupled with the assumption by experienced users, that you understood what they were on about, was at first off-putting.
Then i found "Ubuntu for Non-geeks" At last the mysteries begun to unfold.
It does not just tell you how to do things, it shows you, with projects.
All it assumes is a bit of common sense and a willingness on your part to try.
My thanks to Rickford Grant and Phil Bull.
