For those who would like to get "Open Source" citizenship :)

71010 certified - for those who would like to get "open source" citizenship :)



During past few years, I have been in touch with many Linux related resources. Here are few from my bookmarks:

1. Some kind of a manual. Contains common answers to Linux newcomers.
URL: http://www.jediknight.com/~smpoole/wintips.html


2. Another "tutorial". It explains what, where, why, how etc. Also for those who recently have got themselves into *nix systems.
URL: http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/DOS-Win-to-Linux-HOWTO.html


3. This article contains the list of common used Windows applications and their Linux alternatives (which are in most cases better then their Redmond mates!).
URL: http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/20070701111340544/Equivalents.html
Tip: check out http://linuxlinks.com for more resources ;)


4. Most valuable thing if you need to access your Linux partitions from Windows. Currently suported: Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003/Vista (both x86 and x64 platform)
URL: http://www.fs-driver.org/download.html


5. Similar thing to FS-Driver mentioned above, except it's built for accessing your Windows partitions from Linux OSs.

Tip: for help, read documentation from the menu shown left on their page.


Hope this helped :)


King regards!

    They need it to help them use open-source operating systems. It's not hard to work out.

    I've switched to linux recently and didn't regret for a second.

    It's hard to get used to gimp though. I will have to, I still have so many pics to make :)

    "I've switched to linux recently and didn't regret for a second."
    Of course you didn't :) Why would you :) Like I mentioned somewhere in the post, opensource applications are in most cases better than their 'origins', if I can say so...

    I've been using Linux since ~1999 and I'm feeling fine at all ^^ I got no problems with that :)

    Talking of GIMP... It's not hard as it seems to be :) Try getting more into it and you'll see ;)

    yeah, gimp seems to lack drawing shapes such as circles and squares. You may find it easier to get Inkscape (vector drawing program... use with gimp :P )
