New Here Need Direction
Im new to the whole Linux thing, and I'm looking for as much information as my sponge can collect. I'm building a Shuttle XPC for Mobile Entertainment. And I think Linux is the way to go, but I don't know what it really is other than a windows alternative(sorry), where to start reading. So any direction would be much appreciated, Thanks in advance!
