Welcome!
If you’ve made it this far, you’reclearly among the growingnumber of people who are curiousabout Linux. I’m not sure what hasled you here – perhaps you’re sickof installing security updates everyother day, perhaps you’re tired ofrebooting when your computer runsslowly, or maybe you’ve just hadenough of the Blue Screen of Death– but whatever it was that broughtyou here, I’m glad to welcome you tothe family of Linux users, and hopeyou’ll find that there’s a whole new world of computing here that can reallyput the fun back into it all again.This magazine is a one-off publication aimed at newcomers to Linux.That’s you, which means you’ve come to the right place! But Linux is abig world of software, and, while some of it looks and works just like theWindows or Mac software you’re used to, a lot of it will also be new, andthat’s where this guide comes in – we’ve written it to be a comprehensivepack for new starters to Linux, with the goal of helping you to get themost from your computer with the least reading. You’ll also find a DVDbundled with this magazine that includes a complete, installable versionof Linux for you to use. Yes, it’s true that there are lots of versions of Linuxout there, but we’ve written this guide to accompany the software on thatDVD, so if you want to get the most from all the tutorials we’ve providedfor you, we recommend you use that disc to get started.Now it’s time for the adventure to begin. If you want to dive in straightaway, turn to p10 for our install guide. If you’d like to read a bit more aboutLinux first – and I’d recommend it! – turn to p6.Have fun!
