    Thumbs up basic guides

    Ok 100% NOOB here.

    I'm on deployment my laptop crashed and all the restore disks are back home in storage, time to learn open source.

    Any help on a good guide book i can order or any little tips for beginners like me?

    That link has an extra http// in it therefore it doesn't work. Here is a working link for it.

    Re: basic guides

    fenririx,

    By "open source" I'm taking it you mean Ubuntu - Sorry, if I'm incorrect.

    Welcome aboard!

    I would suggest this sticky by ugm6hr: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801404 . The links to Psychocats Ubuntu Guide: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/ and Free Ubuntu Pocket Guide by Keir Thomas: http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com/index_main.html are of particular note but the entire sticky is full of a lot of good information.
