This website is a free course for learning Linux, a version of Unix that runs on ordinary personal computers.
I created it for people who want to learn the basics of using Linux, and thereby Unix,
without getting bogged down in too much detail or technobabble. (See
Doctor Bob's bio to learn more about the author.)
Oddly enough, most computer info seems to be
written for people who already understand the topic. I think you'll find this site is different...
To be sure, there are a lot of Linux websites, but you'll find this Linux course unique
because the lessons are short and to the point.
This site has been carefully crafted
and edited so that both the novice and the more experienced computer user will get what
they want -- the know-how to use Linux effectively.
Because Unix is the foundation for much of the Internet, many people are using or
encountering it nowadays. As the Internet grows, Unix will become more popular,
creating an array of new opportunities. If you're simply curious, looking to gain new job
skills, or thinking about Linux as a low-cost platform for operating your own Internet
server, this website is for you.
You'll find plain-English information here about using Linux on a personal computer or
on a shell account provided by your Internet Service Provider. After a brief history and
overview of Linux, you'll find a concise and occasionally light-hearted treatment of these topics:

I welcome your comments. However... I am puzzled by many people

all you can, ask questions if you like. But don't ask me to send what you already have. :-)
