You'd move it into Guides section.

What are the components of Linux ?
Kernel:
Packages:
I definitely like this! "Linux consists of: a) the kernel, b) all other stuff." That's true, actually.

This is a really good guide; just remember that different Linux distros have different methods of managing programs. For starters, I recommend an Ubuntu-based distro like Ubuntu itself or Linux Mint or any other desktop environment you want. Any help with Linux just ask.

There are lots of mistakes, but it's a good tutorial overall.
+1 for sticky.

--------------------

* Linux is a Kernel. What is built on top of it is called an distribution.
* Linux sometimes costs, specially on the server side. Sometimes even more expensive then a Windows server. But it's much better.
* Linux can be easy, specially with Linux Mint.
* There are choices where BSD is a better solution than Linux. And even if it's different then Linux, there's no reason to recommend people NOT to use it. Instead, we show the options and let the user decide on which does his tasks best.
* You don't need to delete partitions in order to use Linux along with Windows.

Then it get "not newbie friendly" with all those commands :D

Linus Torvalds says Linux is an operating system as well as a kernel. Richard Stallman claims Linux is GNU/Linux because Linux was heavily influenced by GNU tools. Everyone else just goes generic and neutral by referring to Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch Linux, Gentoo or what have you as simply 'Linux'. That's completely fine and has a more idomatic meaning than adhering to political correctness.

Yes, there are some mistakes.

It's for beginners. It's not for beginning administrator with commercial concerns ;)
