I would like to give the users some basic information about Linux.
Actually I think I would like to read a little bit about it myself,
Can anyone direct me to an internet site they have found useful?
Reading about Linux is a good idea, but the best way to learn about
and get comfortable with Linux is to use it!
Many distributions are now available in "Live Distribution" format; if
you have a PC that is capable of booting from the CD-ROM drive (most
recently built PCs will do this) you can download a disc image, burn
it to a recordable CD, and then boot from that and run Linux on your
own PC, whenever you want to, without changing anything on your hard
There are a gazillion "live" Linux distributions, but the two
best-known are probably:
http://www.knoppix.net/ - Knoppix
http://www.ubuntu.com/ - Ubuntu
My opinion is that Ubuntu is probably best for beginners, especially
since there's quite a bit of good documentation at
https://help.ubuntu.com/ and good advice at the community wiki:
