Links for New Ubuntu Users

I have a friend who recently informed me of their venture into the world of Linux.  I started to build up a good set of links and thought I would share.  Here you go.

 

The Ubuntu Guide - A Wiki for common setup and configuration tasks in Ubuntu.

 

Ubuntu Tweak - Simplifies some Ubuntu configuration tasks as well as application and driver installation.

 

Appnr - Find Linux Applications

 

Dual Boot Reference - For those who want to hang to Windows just in case.

 

Gnome Do - This is one of my favorite applications in Ubuntu.  Thanks to Gnome Do, I never have to swim through menus to launch an application.  Learn it.  It will save you time.

 

Here are some good Linux blogs.

 

Productive Linux - A blog about performance and efficiency in Ubuntu.

 

OMG! UBUNTU! - A blog that follows Ubuntu news very closely.
