there are many repeated topics in the forum and I see many new topics being created that have been discussed previously that's diminishes the quality of the posts.

I personally advise Hostgator for hosting. They are really professional, support is perfect and uptime very good. Go to hostgator_dot_com and use "onecentcoupons" coupon code. You get first month just for free which is good deal.

Bob, I was an Internet Tourbus subscriber when I was running Windows years ago. I've since switched to Ubuntu (Edgy... Lucid) and whaddaya know, you're a Linux guru too! I'm surprised that I don't see more messages from former Tourbus subscribers here. Your Linux Classes will be a mainstay for me. Thanks for your great work!

I picked up Linux for my 2nd attempt about 2 weeks ago and was struggling even after reading about every manual available on my install. I learned more in a few hrs here than I have learned ANYWHERE else on the web or in the stuffy overly complex manuals on the install. I don't know how to thank you enough! If you had a paypal donate button I would definately throw some cash
your way. The hrs and frustration you saved me is beyond comprehension. Side question, did you live in Rochester, NY at all while workin at IBM?

@Tejas - Linux is just an implementation of unix. There are others, such as BSD.
(10 Apr 2010, 00:34
Between Linux and Unix which one would you choose at the end of the day, and why?

(09 Mar 2010, 09:53
I remember my TI-58. I mowed lawns all summer to get the $300 I needed to buy it. I also clearly recall typing in formulas so I could "cheat" in school with it. How I wish it didn't lose its memory when the battery died! Funny (and ironic) -- that memory loss thing helped me learn those formulas forever! P.S. Your Linux tutorial is the missing guide I have been searching for.
(25 Feb 2010, 08:36
Nothing! I learned programming in high school, and then went to college for a Computer Science degree.

i want linux tutorial
I welcome your comments. However... I am puzzled by many people who say "Please send me the Linux tutorial." This website *is* your Linux Tutorial! Read everything here, learn all you can, ask questions if you like. But
don't ask me to send what you already have. :-)
