    I am new in Linux Forums.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am a new user in your big Community. I am a beginner at Linux. I do not know a lot about it, but I think Linux is pretty intresting. Origanlly, I am a microsoft fan. I used to Develop Windows XP, but now I am looking forward to developing Linux and make my own linux OS. I heard about your comunnity through many pepole, and I heard that you make teams of users who make their own Linux and publish it to the world, so is this true? And where can I join one of these teams? Also, where can I learn about Linux? Also, can you provide me with the best Linux package (other than Ubuntu because I do not like it) so that I install it?

    Thanks in Advance

    hi and welcome

    There is no "the best linux distribution"
    Because, if there was one, then there wouldnt be so many

    A distro is usually geared for a usecase or group of people.
    For example:
    RedHat/CentOS/Scientific Linux/debian are for heavy duty server purposes.
    So you can run thousands of servers with them, but probably not the latest fancy wifi or sound card.

    Fedora/ubuntu/mint are more for the typical desktop user.
    Lots of graphical gimmicks.

    Distrowatch has a good overview.

    If you want to learn what makes linux tick,
    I suggest to do a Linux From Scratch
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Hello and Welcome!

    As far as making teams, that's a new one on me!
    You can, however, post your ideas and questions. Someone may pop-in and add to your thoughts, or point you towards some development team.
    Also, where can I learn about Linux?
    Use it. That's honestly the best way that I've found. Use it, break it, fix it... and use it some more.
    To get some quick tips, though, check out these sites. Great resources for those new to the Linux world: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts.
    Bash scripting Tutorial

    Also, can you provide me with the best Linux package (other than Ubuntu because I do not like it) so that I install it?
    I've seen it posted here before, that that's like asking what flavor of ice cream is the best.
    I could tell you which one I think is best, but there would be a lot of remarks concerning that!
    Try a few for yourself. I used Ubuntu for a while, and was happy with it. But I've also used Fedora, CRUX, Mint, and others. Using Slackware, at the moment.
    Take a look at DistroWatch. Lot's of information regarding each distribution, and links to reviews.

    New users, read this first.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help. Please keep it on the public boards.

    Thanks For You All Gys,

    Now I am writing to you from Ubuntu Linux. It is Very Interesting and easy to use and install.

    Thank You all Gys for your hard Support

    I learned about and it was quiet intresting, I made a linux called 'Emirates Linux', it worked successfully, It is the first step for me, but now I need to attend on myself not on the other websites in building Linux

    Instead of building Linux from Scratch. You can get your feet wet with a Arch,or Crux,or Gentoo,or Debian Net, or AntiX Core,or pupngo, or Ubuntu Minimal CD type of install and build up from there.

    It won't be a cake walk for a novice linux user though.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
