New 100 Linux Tutorials Video Campaign to Build Collective Knowledge Base
In an effort to meet the increasing demand to learn Linux, The Linux Foundation today is also announcing a yearlong campaign to build a collective knowledge base for the operating system. The new 100 Linux Tutorials campaign is being hosted on Linux.com at http://video.linux.com and calls on both individuals and organizations from the community to share their knowledge in short Linux video tutorials. Linux.com is the primary resource and online destination for Linux users, developers and enthusiasts and hosts a variety of original content, including Linux tutorials, news analysis, product reviews and videos.

This video campaign is aimed at increasing access to Linux knowledge, removing barriers to learning Linux, and transferring expertise around the globe. The Linux Foundation invites Linux enthusiasts, developers and systems administrators to be part of this worldwide campaign to collect 100 Linux video tutorials on the Linux.com video forum, which anyone can access and learn with the click of a mouse.
