I am your tour guide, scoutchorton. This will be a long journey, but I will help you.
I have used Ubuntu for over a year now, and I know how to use it very well. With that being said, there are things I don't know, but that's what learning is for!
In this blog series, I will teach the average Joe when it comes to computers, how to install, use, and be proficient in using Ubuntu, which is an operating system under the Linux Kernel.
You may wonder where I got the name for the blog? Well, on the internet, a 'scrub' is a word for a 'noob', which is short for 'newbie', which means someone who is starting or is new to something. Now, I would assume that if you are reading this, and are most of the population, you haven't used Ubuntu, or any Linux distribution at all. So, that would crown you 'scrub'.
