Linux "Linux is not Windows, and although there are some similarities, you must realize that there may be a few 'new ways of doing things' to learn before you can be comfortable in Linux. Linux is an open-source clone of UNIX, a secure operating system that predates DOS and Windows and is designed for multiple users. The items in the following list generally apply to any UNIX-based *nix system, such as Linux and the various BSD's. For the purposes of this article, assume that it's all Linux."

Agreed.

Although, it should be Xandros or Linspire that they base the article on.

Then there should be articles for intermediate users for Mandriva/Suse/Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu
