    Newbie here

    Hello everyone,

    I registered here so that I can learn about Linux. I have never used it or played around with it but I want to get started. I hope that I can learn from this community!

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

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Glad to have you join up. You might want to go to and see all the options there. The top 100 distro's are on the right hand side of the page a screen or so down, and they have a helpful search function to help you narrow down your choice of distro's. There are more than the top 100 distro's on the site, about 700 altogether, but as a newbie concentrate on the top 20 or so. Best of luck and hope to hear from you often.

    Welcome, Dexinthecity! ask away -- just give us sufficient background info on hardware and the specific concern! Someone here knows the answer.
