I’ve already done a post on Some Linux Resources for Beginners so I thought I’d round up some great resources specifically for those starting out with Ubuntu. I haven’t included many blogs here where posts are put up regularly, only if they’ve mentioned a good Ubuntu resource in a blog post. Mostly these are just Ubuntu reference/resource sites with tutorials, guides, how-tos, forums, etc.
General Ubuntu resources
UbuntuHCL: Ubuntu Hardware Compatibility List
Gnome-Look: Eye Candy for your GNOME desktop
Ubuntu Brainstorm: submit your ideas for inclusion in future Ubuntu versions
Ubuntu Installation Guide: One of the most comprehensive guides on installing Ubuntu I’ve seen
Ubuntu: search resources
Ubuntu cheatsheets and shortcuts
Ubuntu how-tos and tutorials
Ubuntu Geek: quick tips and how-tos
Ubuntux: a community for beginners and experts
Full Circle Magazine: free downloadable magazine
Ubuntu User: subscription magazine
This is just the tip of the iceberg and I’m sure I’ve missed many important Ubuntu resources here. Just drop a comment below with any you’ve come across that you find really useful and I’ll add them.
