Good introductory article on linux



There is a Newsforge article talking about “Best Practices for the Linux home office”. They cover a lot of ground for the newcomer to linux. But some of their advice is excellent for computing in general. One is to treat your work machine like a production system (not development) the advice here is not to risk your main work machine on that game you’ve been dying to try out.



There is a brief mention of going beyond just choosing what software to install and coming up with a backup plan, disaster recovery plan and taking responsibility for the security of your system. Additionally they emphasize eliminating a single point of failure for your setup. It’s a good article and the first in a series.
