This article serves as an introduction to Linux, including what Linux is, a brief history, why Linux is important, and how to install a distribution of Linux (Fedora).
Every N00b needs a hand to hold and Adam extends his for you. Linux can be scary and frought with danger, especially if you are coming from the Windows world, but this article acts as your guide in the dark jungle of linux-land.
Good stuff, highly recommended. Even the non-n00bs amongst us got something out of it.
