Bookmarks selection Liveliest and most useful places
A showcase of the liviest and most useful places for the GNU/Linux crowd.
Why this page ?
As we know a lot of wiki pages already have their own "External links" section, pointing to plenty of relevant links in the whole linuxquestions wiki, but it can sometimes be difficult to have a clear view of what most consider very useful or interesting GNU/Linux links. This page should thus showcase what are considered the most liveliest and most useful places relating to Linux so that anyone foreign to the GNU/Linux world can have an instant feel for it.
By nature this page will contain a very limited number of links, so if you are looking for exhaustive sources of bookmarks or somewhere to share new found ones you should rather go to :
- The relevant wiki page and its "External links"
- The LinuxQuestions bookmarks section
- A web directory like dmoz.org for instance.
- Underlined sections/titles point to another wiki page with more related links. Often points to a External links section of a corresponding wiki page. This is for convenience, it should not be the start of a vast web directory. You can maybe do that on another wiki page.
