I’ve already done a post on Ubuntu and Linux blogs for beginners so I thought I’d round up some great resources for those starting out with Linux. I’ll do a follow-up post on Ubuntu Resources for Beginners a little later. I haven’t included many blogs here where posts are put up regularly, only if they’ve mentioned a good resource in a blog post. Mostly these are just Linux reference/resource sites with tutorials, guides, howtos, forums, etc.
General Linux resources
Tuxfreaks: Tips for Linux Beginners (1st part in an ongoing series)
Hardware for Linux: look up and report hardware compatibility and incompatibility with Linux distros
Linux cheat sheets
Linux command line
I know, this is a post for beginners so why’s he mentioning the command line? Don’t be afraid of the command line. You can get a lot of useful things done there quite quickly once you get the hang of it.
Linux howtos and tutorials
Unfortunately, there isn’t much choice for beginners and intermediate users. Many Linux podcasts are quite geeky and just not aimed at beginners. These are probably the best around at the moment
LINUX Format This is the best I’ve seen for anyone just starting out with Linux through to more advanced users.
I’m sure I’ve missed many important Linux sites here. Just drop a comment below with any you’ve come across and I’ll add them.
