Welcome to the linux-ch.at wiki! Below are a few categories. Help us grow by adding correct, coherent information. For a while, until we generate more content - there isn't going to be a ton of categories to choose from. If you can think of a good category that your edit falls under; by all means add it. But for now, lets just try to have 'tunnel vision' and add pages. Try not to worry too much about where it should all be cataloged at this juncture. We can always retroactively restructure the information as it becomes necessary, or when it makes sense to do so. Check the syntax page before you make your edits to make sure everything is properly formatted and use interwiki links where ever they are applicable.
