Crash course on Linux

karthik · updated · flag

In this crash course, you'll learn the history of personal operating systems, what Linux is, and how easy you can adapt to it. This crash course is intended for beginners, Windows or Mac users who haven't explored Linux yet, or just anyone who'd like to know what Linux is all about. Also, this happens to be the very first course on Arclind Mindspace. So, I hope this helps as a reference for the rest of the creators. Have fun!
