HOW TO know more as a newbie?

It is not a long time which ubuntu became one of the most popular Linux distributions. I have received a pack of 10 CDs from ubuntu shipit service and share theme with some friend and colleague. As most of them are completely new to the Linux world I have usually forced to answer lots of question! (Most of the time I am talking about RTFM methodology after two or three times :)) so here , I want to list some of useful internet guide for a Linux SMART newbie:

– Your first place for all the time is our big brother, Google. Don’t hesitate to ask your question from G!
– Most of the famous distributions have their own web forum or community. but for most of the you can refer to LinuxQuestions.
– Up to your languages, there should be some kind of LUG or local community for you area. if you are Iranian or talking Persian you can use Technotux and هزاردستان!
– Talking about Ubuntu, I have to mention Unofficial Ubuntu Starter Guide (Persian) , Ubuntu Blog , Ubuntu Forums
– You can view a long list of Screenshots from different distributions at OSDir Screenshot Gallery. OSDir is a member of O’REILLY NETWORK.
– You can view list of different distributions at the DistroWatch website. If you want to know more about Major Distributions or be aware of the latest news don’t forget to read DW Weekly !
– There is tons of other resource available in the internet, like Linux Documentation Project and mailing lists.

p.s: Add any url you think could be a useful one !
