October 20, 2009 7 comments

The Linux training question of the day today was: “What’s the best way to teach a Linux newbie?” We received a great response from our Facebook and Twitter friends and followers and wanted to post these ideas on our blog so that others may be inspired to share Linux more effectively.

@5h3r4t4n said “You got deleted everything you know about windows, thats the difficult part, after that everything gonna be Easy, read, read..”
@allan1850 said “I would say sit them in front of the system and let them play”
@parinsharma said “Telling him about it the FOSS and after he/she gets interested just start them telling about shell scripting and GUI Compiz etc.”
@airurando said “Patience, small steps, introduce them to what they would find useful first.”
@juanfer1 said “I think with some series of screencasts tutorials”
@vargas7 said “Begin with Ubuntu and a comparison of the common windows functionalities and where they can be found in Linux”
@jamesswinyard said “Sit down with them, let them play, then let them ask questions as they find things.”

Keep them coming and we’ll continue to post them here. You may use the comments for below to answer “What’s the best way to teach a Linux newbie?”.
