These all look like good places to start, i have been using 10.04 Lucid for 8 mos( no internet though) just playing with the gui and the terminal( love the terminal) however would like to get more familiar with the terminal in regards to the fact that i would rather spend most of my time there(the terminal) if possible than on the gui..
@ daslinkard, thanks, it is about having more control of the system. The "NewBorn Geek" in me has made a binder with alot of info from the ubuntu documentation site to aide and assist me with the maintenance of my ubuntu system, and its pretty full at this point, i would like to learn how to use python, im just not sure how or where to get started? Ive been looking on amazon for books on python for beginners, ever since i learned about open source in school, i just want to learn more and more, knowledge is infinite.. Peace..
