Calling all Ubuntu users in the Chicagoland area. I am decided to finally get off my laurels and make a manual for Ubuntu Linux for the seasoned and veteran Windows IT professional. After nearly ten years of supporting Windows environments, I have to say mentally adjusting to Linux can be a mentally fatiguing task.
So, I am spearheading, to my knowledge, the first online manual designed specifically to suit the needs of a veteran Windows IT professional who wants to start using Ubuntu Linux.
I plan to do this by utilizing the following:
#1. Creating a project wiki on Launchpad and putting together a team of Windows gone Linux guiys like myself.
#2. Outlining the most common procedures from my ten years of experience, and the teams experience and then comparing them to the Linux equivalents.
#3. Making it all look pretty with screen shots and step by steps, etc...glossary, etc.
This is just my seed idea for now. I am rather tired and will revise the idea when I have had some rest.
