Switch to Linux – a beginners guide

Posted on in Categories Howto, Links, Linux, Linux desktop last updated August 24, 2007

Recently I came across a small but useful resource about making the switch to Linux from Windows. The site has information about:
=> What Linux is?
=> How to get it?
=> How to install it? etc

The site is useful for new Linux users who wish to make the switch.

This website is run by a non-profit organization, GNU/Linux Matters, to promote GNU/Linux amongst everyday users. We believe in a widespread use of free software – as part of a truly free society; and wanted to say how useful and fun Linux is.
