Many new users adapt quickly to Ubuntu desktop because of it's easy to use design. However, finding answers when things go awry by searching the Internet, asking friends or posing questions on mailing lists can be frustrating. It is our goal to develop these guides in a way that will help the novice install and use Ubuntu and provide trouble shooting tips to address possible problems.

Loco team members will develop the guides and present their initial drafts to group at our monthly meetings beginning in January 2015. Feedback from the meetings presentation will be added to the guides. We will then make the guides available to possible new users and experienced Linux users for comments. This feedback will be incorporated into the final version of the guide.

I have a lot of notes that I have made over the years - mostly trying 
to make it easy to figure out working cli commands to quickly do things. I 
can try and organize them into something that can be useful for 
someone going from beginner to intermediate user.

would that be useful?
