Introducing Linux: Ultimate Beginner’s Guide

Linux: Ultimate Beginner's Guide
Written by Martins D. Okoi

The Linux environment can be intimidating to those just discovering it for the first time because of its notably “hacker-perceived” community; its various distributions and distributions types; and its seemingly mandatory requirement for users to carry out tasks using the Terminal.

Beginners usually wonder what the deal is with sudo, mkdir, apt-get, and the many other so-called command line statements – I know I had those questions when I just started, and many times these are the type of questions that prevent people from getting to know more about Linux and Open-Source communities.

These days, however, the situation has changed for the better. With instructors and professionals releasing guides targeted at different audiences ranging from beginners to experts, people who are interested in understanding what Linux is in all its beauty need not be frightened any longer thanks to the step-by-step approach many authors use today.

So, we are glad to introduce you to Linux: Ultimate Beginner’s Guide.
