Links for Linux: Ubuntu

I recently found this guide I wrote a while ago for newbies for installing Ubuntu.


Welcome to “Links of Linux: Ubuntu” Beta, all o knowledge of Linux in one place, beta-style. Here I will link various websites to help you use, understand, and master the Ubuntu operating system. Many of the links here overlap, and a few I included just for a small part of the article. I will tell you briefly why I chose to include each link after I give it. I would recommend following all the links, but some are a matter of style and personal preferences, while others are critical.
