    Linux Conversion Kit

    Brian writes "I added a new article in the 'Labs' section. It's a rather lengthy overview geared toward people like my parents, who are fed up with Winders, but don't have much opportunity to see what Linux looks like, and what they're in for when they get into it. It's called the The Linux Conversion Kit. This article is the first of multiple parts that will cover different aspects of Linux as they apply to the home user and newcomer to Linux
    Read this article if you want to know what this Linux thing is all about:

    Good article! That's the first I've seen pitching it at a simple level, rather than beginning with "Tweaking your kernel". Please do shout when the next installment arrives.

    yeah that sort of thing really put me off when i was just getting into Unix... but really the kernel thing is quite an easy thing to 'get' if you do a little more reading at the _right_ places (or books...)

    will keep track of the 2nd installment and let you guys know

    <edit> oh yes forgot the important question! Any converts?! </edit>
