Introduction to Linux: In The Beginning…

Like all things in life, a beginning. As we have covered many technical and practical topics in Linux on this site over the past year or so, it occurred to us that perhaps we needed to pause and go back to the beginning. So that is exactly what we have done.

Announcing…
As most of you that are regular visitors to this site know, we not only write about Linux (opinions, tutorials and reviews) but we offer comprehensive training that can take anyone from a complete “Linux newbie” to someone who is prepared for their Linux Professional Institute Certification Exam as well as a career in the industry.

It seemed to us though that perhaps we could do more for our new Linux brethren. I am happy to announce that Linux Academy by Pinehead.tv now offers a complete course of videos called “Introduction to Linux”. This course starts at the beginnings of Linux from the time Linus Torvalds made his first announcement on Usenet regarding his project to where we are today. We will cover topics like:

  • Server vs. Desktop
  • Ubuntu Installation
  • Dual Booting
  • Proprietary Drivers
  • Top Things to Do After Installation
  • Gnome Desktop
  • KDE Desktop
  • Unity
  • Customizing All Those Desktops
  • Running Windows Applications
  • Basic User and File Management
  • …and more!
