The Ubuntu Forums are helpful, if slightly chaotic. The wikis are better organised, but inconsistent and occasionally outdated. Now a team of users and contributors to the free Linux distribution have organised to create a beginner's manual for Ubuntu, to be included by default with the next release (Lucid Lynx) in April.
The manual aims to include "comprehensive guides, how-tos and information on anything you need to know after first installing Ubuntu", and is, as you might imagine, being written in wiki form, so anyone can contribute. What newcomer topics and how-tos would you like to see covered in an Ubuntu manual? [via Kabatology]
