"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
"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."
