Anyway, it depends on how you define beginner
. Is that a computer noob? Then don't include the Arch Linux
Wiki I think, as they should know which end of the mouse is the business end and be able to install a Windows driver or some such. If you define beginner
as somebody who can do those things, just doesn't know anything about Linux
, Arch Linux
Wiki is a valuable source of learning. I know I would have wanted to have this when I was kicking around with Debian unsuccessfully 12 years ago
Well I thought of an average computer user. End users generally hunt for solution only in case of emergency
They think (including myself
) that everything should be self explanatory and does not require manual to begin with. When we bought a new machine machine, nobody cared to have a look at manual. Same with TV sets and DVD player
Any ways you have a valid point. If you want to enter Linux
world, then you should be able to help your self, atleast to the extend that you should be able to search
for solution, post your problem, able to take screenshot or error log and post it in forums.
But hey, this is your project
@xenopeek and @Luckydog
CSE is for everybody. I do not have any vested interest. I do not have an add sense account. I will add arch Linux
also has good explanation of manual partition and how can you shrink windows 7 partition without loosing any data. It just takes few clicks. I request you to please take a look at their wiki and do advise me if I should add it or not.
You can still contribute, by giving valuable suggestions.
I have limited info and contribution by fellow users is always helpful
Should I make another refinement 'installation' which searches only installation wiki or it is not needed. Current CSE gives efficient results. Do let me know.
If you capable of editing and customizing CSE, so that it can have a better look or can be made more effective, please do let me know and I can share authorship. I do not have a creative eye as far as look-n-feel is concerned and the current layout and effectiveness is the best I can. I cannot go any further than this. I do not know html or API or any kind of coding.
Any help is welcome
Just one concern. Clem is getting revenue from his CSE. I don not wish that he should loose any revenue, because of our CSE.
