Welcome to OpenSourceHowTo.Org

Hi everyone, I’ve started this web page in the hope to provide a number of services to the OpenSource community such as a wiki, how to guides, video explanations, question & answer forums and hopefully much more.

If you want to help OpenSourceHowTo.Org by posting your own howto’s on this website, click here to find out how to do it or click here if you want to know howto post your own blog

There is also a new page being added called the OpenSourceHowTo.org Support Page. Feel free to click on it and help me out if you have found any of the pages on this website helpful.

If you want to know what is changing and has been changed at OpenSourceHowTo.org just check out the Announcements page OpenSourceHowTo.org Announcements.

I have added an IRC channel for users of OpenSourceHowTo.Org to chat to and talk to each other on. Hopefully this will become another place where Linux users can come for help/answers to their questions.
irc://irc.freenode.net/opensourcehowto

Included in the sample content you will find:

An introduction to Linux

Video how-to’s with audio documentary

A summary of the software used in each example

Forums for asking questions about the how-to’s

Wiki for adding your own comments about the how-to’s

How-to’s on just about everyone open-source server software available
