Start a Liinux Learning Group

Sorry, but U sound commanding.

There are several regulars here who (seem to) know quite a bit about linux, but it's up to the @-people to decide if that would be on-topic. Though it would be interesting.

It's been suggested before. It's heavily off-topic, as far as I'm concerned, but a lot of people end up asking about Linux things in General anyway. I'd like to have _real_ learning groups going strong first.

Also, it shouldn't be "up to the @-people to decide," but no one else is ever willing to actually do anything, so we get that effect.

The amount of questions we have for that, IMO, shouldn't be big enough of an excuse to move them to a different place.

yeah I wanted a linux user group waaay back.... but like P said... i think we should focus on the learning groups that have been left alone...

Heh, I'm an '@' person ;-)

Seriously though, I agree with Psion. A Linux LG would be offtopic, and the relatively few questions we get about Linux can be answered fine in the General or even Programming (if programming related) boards. One step at a time, let's see the current learning groups get off the ground and do something productive first ;-)

Well why don't you just make a new forum and call it "LinuxLG" or you can go all out and call it "Linux Learning Group"?? I think there are more people interested in Linux then you realise...

Perhaps if someone trows in (an URL of) a tutorial on Linux and keep the questions about it in general.

I found a Ebook "Complete Idiot's Guide to Linux.pdf" on Kazaa. I can't say if this is a legal release (there are actually legal things on Kazaa, if you can find them ofcourse) or not. Ah well, downloading warez is a personal decision, it's your soul that'll have to burn in hell for it. (Another reason why athe?sme is the only way to go)
