Novell’s got the buzz: Linux

IBM: Roadmap from Windows to Linux

IBM has published a nine-part series on their website entitled “Windows to Linux: A roadmap for developers making the transition to Linux” aimed at developers. It’s not yet another boring step-by-step installation guide. It starts with “We’re assuming you already have Linux installed. ” and goes on from there to talk about the aspects of Linux development in nine chapers:

  1. Thinking in Linux
  2. Console crash course
  3. Introduction to Webmin
  4. User administration
  5. Linux logging
  6. Working with file systems
  7. Networking
  8. Backup and recovery
  9. Installing software

Looks like a great starting point.
