    Same here, Im too used to windows. But i still try to work Linux out, ubuntu is best for beginners. For some body who really wants to use and learn Linux here is a rly good ebook that i found, It tells you everything about ubuntu. For me i still switch bettween xp, vista and linux since i cant get get some of the things to work on linux, But wine is a rly good program for linux, with wine u can install windows programs on linux.

    You can go the the web site for that flavor of Linux and find documentation. O'Reilly books has a book called "Running Linux" that's a really good reference, or the Sam's Teach Yourself series has one "Teach Yourself Linux in 10 Minutes a day". You can pick either one, or others, up pretty cheap at Amazon.com, especially if you don't mind buying a used copy.

    One thing for sure, once you master Linux, you'll never be satisfied with Windows again!
    i'm going for linux too , i wish it is easy as u say )

    Hi. I am, by far, a linux guru. But, I work on equipment that uses an sgi fuel. This has an os which is derived from unix. Whenever I am trying to learn command line stuff I type "man" for manual, and the command I want to learn about. Not sure if linux uses this or not but it's very helpful.

    I have started using Linux for one month.
    I like it and want to discuss some of the advantages.
    Low cost: You don’t need to spend time and money to obtain licenses since Linux and much of its software come with the GNU General Public License. You can start to work immediately without worrying that your software may stop working anytime because the free trial version expires. Additionally, there are large repositories from which you can freely download high quality software for almost any task you can think of.
    Stability: Linux doesn’t need to be rebooted periodically to maintain performance levels. It doesn’t freeze up or slow down over time due to memory leaks and such. Continuous up-times of hundreds of days (up to a year or more) are not uncommon.
    Performance: Linux provides persistent high performance on workstations and on networks. It can handle unusually large numbers of users simultaneously, and can make old computers sufficiently responsive to be useful again.
    Network friendliness: Linux was developed by a group of programmers over the Internet and has therefore strong support for network functionality; client and server systems can be easily set up on any computer running Linux. It can perform tasks such as network backups faster and more reliably than alternative systems.

    Linux is open source, however if you're running ubuntu on specific machines it tends to lack the needed drivers in which are required for it to run properly. I've ran ubuntu 10.10 and 10.04 and had issues on both versions that declined to install all needed drivers which are broadcom wireless and the STA at times, this was operated on a Dell Mini Inspiron 1210 in which did not work in any way possible for it to be called a stable development to have a minor taste pf enjoyment.

    Went back to windows xp and sad to say i'ts much easier to handle and maintain.
