If you would like to learn the basics of Linux
quickly, try this entertaining online Linux tutorial. You don't need to
install it on your computer, and best of all, it's free! Just click
the Module 1 link below to start.
I would love to get your feedback as to what you think of this course
and what other Linux topics you would like to see covered. Please send

Linux Survival was originally written in Java but web browsers have
made it increasingly difficult to run Java applets, so I rewrote it to run
directly in the browser. However, if you have trouble running the browser-based
modules above, then you can try the old Java version below.
You have two main choices for starting the Java version of Linux Survival,
depending on which operating system you are currently running.
Note: If the Java applet comes up but the simulated Linux console doesn't
appear on page 6 of Module 1, then try the Full-screen option. It won't look
as nice as the other options, but the Linux console should appear.
