Freedom from a Linux Video Manual

I think that more can be done to enable people to enjoy the freedom of the Linux world. Its a good thing there are plenty of choices but without pre-existing knowledge not many will make that step. With video people can recognize and learn the basic skills without leaping into the unknown. The problem with the present video documentation on the net is that its very fragmented. Its not as easy as it should be to find a coherent set of videos that will guide the first time user. To get this and preserve the freedom you need equal documentation for various distributions. Considering only the major Linux distributions. Making the user fluent in Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE would be more than enough.

An idea is that we crowd fund a project to work with a professional studio to make these videos. That way we get a coherent set for Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE.



The best commercials are the ones that people find useful. There are many educational TV channels out there that are longing for interesting content so why not aim high and produce a mini video course for them to broadcast.
