"Today's spotlight site is called "The Ultimate Guide On Linux for Beginners." It doesn't have a fancy domain name of its own, or a fancy interface, or slick design. It's rather hard on the eyes, actually, because it's done with a black background and small type. That makes some of the page elements difficult to read, even when you've set your default font size fairly large."

"If you can get past that (if that even bothers you -- I hear some of you actually favor black backgrounds with white words), and if you really, really like to read, you may find, like I did, that there is quite a bit of good background information here about Linux -- what it is, where it came from, how to get it, what to do with it once you acquire it."

"Copious masses of verbiage drip from these pages. Surely no middle-school Linux research paper would be complete without swiping a few paragraphs from the "What is Linux?" page, or the "History of Unix," or "Linux Development."
