Just starting with Linux

Postby THe Quiet One on Fri Mar 14, 2008 9:01 pm

I want to try Linux, do I need to know any programming languages (I know none)? Can you recommend any tutorials or any thing that would help? Thx, TQO

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Nope, you just need a positive attitude and some basic knowledge on how to use Google and forums (those two are the best tutorials ever). I would suggest doing some research to see if your hardware is compatible with linux before installing, or downloading liveCD and try them without installing to HDD :)
