One of the greatest impediments to the wider adoption of Linux has always been the lack of a simple resource that is written in everyday language for new users. Most people are stuck to Windows because despite all of its flaws, it is still relatively user friendly to the everyday, normal average Joe and also uses normal simple language.
It is in this regard that the Linux for Education site sponsored by the OpenSuse Education Project is a very wonderful move and one that needs commendation from all those in the FOSS world. It has a wealth of resources and learning modules including collections of useful courses to help you better use the applications found on the Linux distributions. There are also forums, chatrooms, courses, and help materials at your disposal.
This is a great resource I recommend to all newbies to the World of GNU/Linux and Open Source. More experienced users also will find lots of resources to enhance their knowledge base. Go on register and learn to use GNU/Linux.
