Switch to Linux and learning to use a new OS

At work I have been experimenting with Fedora Core 3 and also have just installed Linspire within a Virtual PC. Learning a completely new operating system can be very exciting and also completely annoying. Users get very used to the ‘windows’ way and even with lots of Linux information available on the internet it is not always easy making the switch. Two great resources are TUX | The First and Only Magazine for the New Linux User and also UseLinuxAtHome.com as they are specifically written for new users and help make the transition easier. The Tux magazine is interesting as it is a traditional style print magazine distributed in a new medium, that being the .PDF format. It is formatted well for reading on your screen or can be printed if preferred.
