I have bought book after book on trying to learn about Linux and seem to
get more confused. As you so rightly say they seem to assume that you
already understand the techno babble which drives me up the wall. I wish I
had come across this site before. This could become a classic book on
Linux, the world needs it because I am getting sick and tired of Microsoft.
Your are an angel Dr Bob

u have explained very nicely,can u give some reports on the exact
difference between windows and linux...................it will be helpful
for me if u send it...waiting for your result
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. :-)
