For the past month I’ve been hard at work writing a Linux tutorial. What, you say? Aren’t there enough Linux tutorials out there, the Linux Documentation Project, the installation guides etc? And wait, who are you to teach anything? And what, I have to pay for it?
Yes, there are many guides out there that can teach you about Linux for free. But none of them tell you why things are so, how they came to be this way, and what’s the rationale for doing things this way. The worst ones just tell you what to type at the terminal.
Not to mention, which of these would you sit down and read if you were bored? None of them, that’s what. You’d only read them if you wanted to install Linux.
So this pet project is my challenge – to take everything I know about computers and write about it in an interesting way.
I’ve already put the first few chapters up for free, so you can decide for yourself if you like the way I explain things. Later on I will release the ebook that explains networking and how to host your own site with WordPress, as well as how it all works internally.
