Linux for the Uninitiated

Computer Bits has published this interesting article about the challenges and learning opportunities faced by complete newbies to Linux. If you've never used Linux or Unix but wonder what it'd be like to give Linux a try, this is a must-read. Check it out.

This weekend I finally got SuSE 6.3 installed and stable, after 4 or 5 tries at installing. It's a nice complete distribution, but I don't recommend it for newbies. I don't recommend Red Hat for newbies either, for that matter--Mandrake is a better way to go, I think.
