    Hello,
    I was thinking about it: PC-BSD, OpenBSD, Solaris 10, all very neat and solid operating systems. Would you be interested in tutorials, very much like the Linux ones?

    Yes, it would fill out dedoimedo.com in all the right places including these:thumb:
    Perhaps a mention of the lesser known OSes in the future would be nice also.

    Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, Mint, SimplyMepis, E-Live, CentOS...
    Lots of fun for the coming months...

    Sounds good. Can never have enough information, right? It would be nice if, included in these tutorials, you include what you consider the strengths and weaknesses of each OS. For the less informed on this forum (me), it would be a nice overview if one was contemplating installing one of the lesser known OS's.

    That would be great Mrk :)
    I'm specially interested in Solaris, due to the ZFS filesystem.

    Definitely would love to see them for the BSD versions and OpenSolaris, but hey, it's your time :)
    FWIW, I often mention your site to co-workers and friends.

    When's the OS-X tutorial coming? :D

    Hello,
    I don't have one. My bro's got a mac, though. I could ask him to write one.

    Mrk:

    I voted other ( always the maveric) because I like the whole Idea of tutorials on the forum not just for OS's though!

    I do agree with the other posters here! They want more knowledge the better!

    I voted "Yes" although I'm not interested, but that means nothing, because other people are interested and tutorials, written by users like Mrkvonic, are usually much better written than the help files or user manuals of the software itself, because they understand what "other users" need to know in practice. :)

    Hello,
    Indeed, teaching people is not easy. I have done it for 2 years for real, teaching high school kids. Not easy. One of the most important things is to understand what the customer needs. The same with software. Being Freudian-anal also helps...
    Mrk
