Same here, guides on linux would really rock, ie system configuration. how to get win4lin working, how to use wine to make games run ect would be really kool
personally I'd love to have more linux content.

BTW any of you know of a good logo for the DVD frontend I'm making? It'll let you rip, make an iso, and burn, I just don't have a good logo for the proggie.

Im in favor of the linux tut. NOTHING overly done. I mean something totally 100% xserver tut. The shell scripting is fun but most people dont want to learn that much about interfacing with the machine at that low level (this is sad...but i find it true).
I figure something really basic. Enough to get people up and running their computer in general. Alot of people dont do much with a windows computer that cant be done in any other OS and not just Linux. FreeBSD, MAC, Solaris, they all offer the same features now days.
Here's my "overview" run down of a linux tut on how to convert to Linux.
(btw i dont see this tut in existence really...most tuts always break out more than enough CL stuff to get by...better for understanding...but still doesnt get the user on it first with ease).
This should span no more than 3 pages...it can be done.
1. Installing, this is a no brainer. All you really need is /.
A. Partition in your recommended filesystem, if possible let install do it for you
B. Choose a Graphical startup.
1.5 man pages
A. man typeset (just telling people to use man for help...helps ALOT)
2. Setup your ISP connection via DHCP, this is a no brainer...but some could use a
walk through (i guess?).
A. Setup file sharing via SAMBA or 1 or 2 others.
B. Simple SSH login
3. Installing software. Alot of people have this problem.
A. CHMOD 755 filename.bin (or whatever).
B. bash file.bin
C. using graphical tools to install/uninstall (i cant help on this...i use the shell)
D. RPM installer
4. Compiling with gcc and java. This is a MUST. Most (actually all) software i
download myself i compile. Just the general gcc -o source source.c and
javac -g file.java
Thats IT!!! I think if you get people to learn the above simple stuff, its all experience usage from there...just like windows is unless you read a book on windows.
I cant help on the graphical tools...i really cant. I dont have the faintest idea on how to even install a application via a GUI. Ive done it before, but dont remember how. MOST (if not all) GUI's i dont know. I understand the xserver itself but not the interaction....yet. I keep meaning to learn the GUI enviroment but there is just always something in front of that learning time i find interest in more.
As far as the windows tut's...pfff :-). It's all online and most of the stuff is right in the help file or on the m$ dev site itself. More windows tut's is like beating a dead horse to me.

Most of the time a Google search would give these people the answer anyway and it appears to me that its just bloody laziness on their part.
I've been a fan of this site for some time but I find it disheartening to see that the technical expertise that is available is seen by some as an excuse to break the law.
Yes I'm aware that everybody hates Microsoft and they could afford to give away software now but this is the real world and it aint gonna happen.
Ho hum, thats my moan over with...
