Resources for Unix beginners

I am new to Unix. Do you know of a website that has a chart or listing of the diffrent unix flavors and the diffrence of each one. Perhaps with the advantages or enhancement one has over another.

Two great web-sites for you:


The unix-guide also has a chart comparing the various OS commands of the different flavors. One area you won't find a lack of information about on the Internet (which Unix can actually take the credit for developing)is Unix.

The second site can be used by both beginneers and experts. The 'Universe' is an awesome portal.

Good luck.
