New User Documentation
This category should emcompass everything a new user should know about GNU/Linux. Here are some topics that we could use some help with. If you would like to know more, try The Linux Documentation Project (http://www.linuxdoc.org).
Here are some topics that should be written in the near future.
- Why Use Linux
- What is a distribution?
- Package Management, APT, YUM, emerge, and compiling software yourself.
- Desktop Environments (KDE and Gnome)
- Window Managers (Fluxbox, Openbox, Blackbox, Icewm, Windowmaker)
- The Anti-Desktops (Ratpoison, Ion3, wmII)
- Getting around on the command line.
