It Starts Small...

Even launching something as big as Linux.com, it's the little things that mean the most as the site enters its second full week of operation. Late last week, we received the first community contributed article on Linux.com.

The article was a well-done, brief tutorial on installing openSUSE 11.1 on a desktop system, from TGodfrey. It's simple, direct, and walks readers through the basic steps of openSUSE installation. In short, it was exactly the kind of tutorial wanted for Linux.com. There is method behind this constant state of article acquisitiveness; the more content built into Linux.com, the better resource the site becomes for the community--both new and veteran users.

Of course, there is the question of how to get your article on Linux.com. Right now, the answer is simple: e-mail your submission to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Eventually, we will have a direct article submission form on the site, where you can enter and format your tutorial with minimum hassle. At that time, Guru points will rewarded for each published article. (Don't worry, early folks, we're keeping track of user-contributed articles, and we'll add your points retroactively.)

I've been asked what kind of tutorials are needed. Again, a simple answer: basically any aspect of Linux operation is wanted. The site has great content now, but there's plently of opportunity to provide help on topics such as installation, configuration, and troubleshooting for applications, environments, shells, development, and distributions. They don't have to be long treatises; they just need to be clear and factual guides to getting things done with Linux.

Which is something we're all interested in.
