Just a thought....

Has anyone created a guide that explains the basics of using Ubuntu?

You know, a sort of newbie guide or pamphlet...

If not, anyone interested in collaborating on it?

I think what you're looking for is at: https://help.ubuntu.com/

*Shakes fist angrily*

Curse you Ubuntu! Curse you for being so people oriented!!!!

Sorry... that was my best Bill Gates impersonation.

nice impersonation! :D

We'll, even though there is a how-to guide, maybe we should make our own to handout for our next TIE conference, and for the free software day.

Thanks! I try my best.

That would be a great idea, though, something to pass out, bundled with our copies of Ubuntu... almost like a "Starter Kit" sort of thing...

1 - Ubuntu
2 - Starter Guide
3 - Sticker or something (Like what comes in Shipit)

Yeah, and with the "starter kit", we could include info on how to contact us if they need help.
