I would like to see/find a linux magazine that does handle issues like how to install apps, how to burn a cd, how to set up your network stack, the things that most new users don't know how to do. there are many things that I can do in linux and then there is still many things I can't. Most of the times the how-to and man pages don't come with examples only post syntax that if you are unfamiliar with what exactly the app, not you, are trying to do. EG: you want to upgrade your file system from ext2 to ext3 or reiser, you would then have to know how to recompile your kernel. Things like that where as when you look at how to recompile your kernel, it may say nothing about changing your file system. Also, a magazine that wuold have a section showing "this is what you do in windows", now here is how you do it in linux written in newbie language. Most of the linux mags I find are for Admins and have shell scripting (awk, gawk, perl or sed usually) how-to or are pushing enterprise class applications. Maximum linux used to apply to the novice - intermediate user. every month I would learn something new that in somehow would relate to other issues. I was mostly wondering if I there are other people out there who could benefit from this as well.
if my msg is incongruent, i am sorry, i am working and writing this at the same time
