Michael I just started to get serious about learning Linux when I saw some
of the best things being driven by Linux.
If looking for support I would start with Suse or Red Hat.
My first venture was with the Red Hat Linux 9 Bible. With this detailed
book I was very surprised how much I could accomplish just taking it chapter
I am new to the OS but here are a few places that have helped me a great

My name is Michael Davis -- I live in Urbandale and I'm new to this
list. I'm on the digest version for now, but I joined this list at
the suggestion of a friend because I want to install Linux on one of
my home computers.
I was (a little bit) into programming on the Commodore 64 when I was a
kid in the 80s, and want to get back into programming again. All the
reading I have done recently indicates that my first step is to be
working in Linux, so here I am.
I'm pretty clueless at this stage. I'm thinking of buying Linux
instead of downloading it for free, because that way I'd get some
phone support while I figure out what I'm doing. Any thoughts?
