Why do computer geeks never seem to tell you all that you need to know? I'm trying to get up and running with Linux but I constantly hit a brick wall. I'm sure that if ever anyone asked a computer geek for directions it would go something like this:
Traveller: Can you tell me how to get to Boggins Gardens?
Geek: Easy - you go in through the green gates opposite Boggins Hall.
Traveller: I know that but I don't know how to get to the green gates.
Geek: That's easy as well. You start from here and you go in the direction of the green gates.
Traveller goes off in despair and asks an Ordinary Person
OP: Oh, you don't want to bother with that. Just get the Gates bus. It's much easier.
Anyone out there know where I can download a beginning beginner's guide to starting to get started? I thought I had found one but it assumed that I was migrating from MSDOS.
I'm convinced there is a big conspiracy keep us all with Windows or Mac, or else to provide work for all the folk who've come through over-subscribed Geek Studies degree courses.
