Indeed, Arch Linux itself is not for beginners. But I think their Wiki has the best coverage on various topics, for example here is about everything you want to know about GRUB2: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2
. A great source of learning for people new to Linux, as a lot of information is readily accessible in one place instead of tidbits spread all over various forum posts
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
But hey, this is your project
My dear Friend Vincent Vermeulin
I just had a look at grub2 documentation and other topics wiki.
When I clicked the link, I was excited, curious,
As I spend some time,
, later after 15 mins
. Then i tried to again read and understand. End result:
Then something struck, my eyes widened and jaws dropped, and one word just popped up in my mind 'noob' ooooooohh. I Just relaxed. *deep breath* followed by Thats what my name suggests (but sounds better than noob )
This is possible since I have never installed arch or ever worked on it.
Conclusion: Arch not my Cup of Tea.
Anyways, I am an optimist. I wish that this CSE should be helpful to as many people as possible. This requires that CSE should cover as many info as possible without
losing it's effectiveness.
I am happy that it is of any use to advanced users like you.
So I did not mind adding it.
