+ - Amature Syllabus for teaching Linux

Submitted by Koshari
Koshari (1435453) writes "I have been trying to find a good syllabus to follow when teaching Linux to people who only know Windows XP/Vista. I have good knowledge of the system being an MIS student even though sadly we don't have any Linux exposure in the curriculum. I don't know where to start when I teach someone who never used any of the Linux flavors. I have been talking to many family and friends about the open-source movement, GPL, and Linux etc., since I really believe/support them and many have been convinced. As they read more about Linux some have asked for me to teach them more. What would you recommend as a basic reference I can use? where I can get material that is simple to understand for people migrating from Windows to Linux? please include more things that you would see fit. Thanks in advance!"

According to the latest official figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless.
