Notes for a Short Course on Unix
Knoppix - bootable, Live-CD version of Linux that you can try out without installing
Debian GNU/Linux - if you are ready to take the Linux plunge, my personal favorite version
Ubuntu Linux - a slightly more user friendly version of Linux based on Debian
KDE - the K Desktop Environment for Unix - the default desktop on CSB/SJU Linux machines
PuTTY: a free Win32 telnet/ssh client - a nice, free ssh client for when you have to login to a Linux box from anywhere
Cygwin - Free Unix tools that run under MS-Windows
