Great places to help you in getting started with linux.


Many times linux newbies search for the better place to find the learning material about linux. Here I am listing few places which will help you in starting your journey smoothly.

The Linux Documentation Project

The Linux Documentation Project (TLDP) is an all-volunteer project that maintains a large collection of Linux (and Linux-related) documentation and publishes the collection online. It began as a way for Linux hackers to share their documentation with each other and with their users, and for users to share documentation with each other. Its documents tend to be oriented towards experienced users such as professional system administrators, but also contains tutorials for beginners.Here you will find excellent collection of books, tutorials, howto. All this documentation is compiled and maintained by many great knit team of volunteers who provide documentation for many aspects of Linux.

IBM Developerworks

It contains a large number of how-to articles and tutorials, as well as software downloads and code samples, discussion forums, podcasts, blogs, wikis, and other resources for developers and technical professionals.

The magazine has been published since March 1994.Linux Journal publishes articles on all levels of developing and using Linux and the software that runs on it, including everything from how to write device drivers to how to edit photos with GIMP.Most articles are fairly technical, however, Linux Journal does run some user-level and business articles in every issue, and sections called “Up Front” and “EOF” tend to be less technical. Linux Journal’s web site has the entire magazine archive available to subscribers along with articles from older issues and some online-only content available to all.

A very useful site where you will find everything to get familiar with Linux Shells. You can download the entire site also to view it offline.

I hope this list will be useful. I will keep updating it.

  2. Its a great and informtaive article. Now Linux is hot again. In fact, there’s never been a better time for Microsoft Windows users to give Linux a whirl.For someone used to Windows, the main thing to remember is that Linux is different. There is lots to learn, so you need some patience and perseverance. Linux doesn’t suit everyone, but that’s ok.
