This area of the site is specifically for newcomers to Linux. If you want to find out what Linux is, what a distribution is, the purpose of GPL software and how to get Linux and install it, this is the place.

  • What is Linux? - A friendly FAQ outlining the history of Linux, and what it can do for you
  • Distros - What is a distro, and what's the difference between them?
  • Recommended Reading - Links to newbie-friendly information where you can find out more.
  • Linux and Games - Information about games running in Linux
  • Hardware - Hardware that works with Linux
