1. Good Linux help
This is another brief Nederlog that is about help with Linux. There may
be another Nederlog today, but if so, on another subject, which is why
I first write this.
1. Good Linux help
I am still using
GNU/Linux.Ubuntu - is probably the best if also the longest name - and
indeed still cannot use Windows except very briefly, because it
displays too much white, that my eyes still can't cope with.
When I started with Ubuntu (<-Wikipedia) my eyes were not afflicted,
and I started a number of helpfiles you can find here:
though I should add this is
from the beginning of June of 2012, and I also repeat the most helpful
bits from there for helping one to use Ubuntu
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS -
(on ubuntuguide.org: Fine
(very extensive forums)
(very good introductory
(excellent free monthly
Ubuntu Pocket Guide and
(about Ubuntu 8.0 'and later' but still quite helpful)
I haven't added much since, because of my eye problems, and I also have
not learned much more, though I meanwhile have written my first bash script files,
and I know my way around the Linux filesystem better.
One good way to solve problems is to do an internet-search: This
generally provides answers, often many more than one finds it useful to
read. This is the way I usually take to solve Linux related problems,
and it usually works. 
There still is a lot to learn but latety I found a well done
introduction to Linux (not specifically Ubuntu, and also no
specific other distribution), because I hit upon one of its files
during an internet search:
This is quite helpful,
and would have been more helpful had I known it half a year ago. The
site opens with this text
< Linux newbie help... in plain English!
The site does what it
promises. Actually, it is the work of a Swedish geekish sort of person
of the female persuasion, who has been using Linux since the previous
millenium, whose English is quite good, and who does know how to write
brief and clear explanations.
"Um, I installed this
Linux thing everyone's talking about... Now what?"
It's time to learn the
very basics of your new shiny Linux system. TuXfiles provides you with
Linux tutorials in plain English, not in some fancy geekspeak.
The plain English at
tuXfiles is bad, and after reading the help files you'll still feel
very new to the penguin OS, but at least you'll have much more fun with
your new shiny Linux system. Why? Because you'll learn how the
different and somewhat confusing features of Linux actually work, why
those features are great, and how to effectively use the basic and
not-so-basic unique features of Linux.
It does explain the basics quite well; and while the site is not large
it also has helpful links to other sites.
Finally, especially with my eye and other health problems: I am mostly using
Linux, and learn about it mostly on a need to know basis. This is quite
feasible, though I have found it sometimes helps a lot to know some
about the bash- shell. 
Another way is becoming a member of Ubuntu forums. I have not become a
member because I don't like forums where almost everyone is anonymous,
almost everyone is opinionated, and the moderators require all manner
of "appropriate" and "correct" language, but that is just my personal
taste, and may come as a matter of course with large forums with mostly
anonymous people. And I may become a member: I just haven't so far.
 And maybe I should add that my readers
would have seen hardly anything and quite possibly nothing at all from
me if I hadn't switched to Linux briefly before my eyes went bad: I still
can't do much with Windows, simply because it shows too much white in
its menus and backgrounds. Happily, I also don't need it, and probably
have used it less than one hour since June.
(that I prefer
to call M.E.: The "/CFS" is added to facilitate search machines) which
is a disease I have since 1.1.1979:
