The Linux Foundation and edX Team Up for Intoduction to Linux Class 74

An anonymous reader writes "The Linux Foundation has teamed up with MOOC provider edX to teach an introduction to Linux class. Quoting the course description: 'This course explores the various tools and techniques commonly used by Linux programmers, system administrators and end users to achieve their day-to-day work in a Linux environment. It is designed for experienced computer users who have limited or no previous exposure to Linux, whether they are working in an individual or Enterprise environment.' The course begins on August 1st. In addition to the free version of the course, a verified track is available for students who want a credential with more weight (for a nominal price)." Update: As many have pointed out Linus just did an intro for the class. Headline corrected accordingly.

    If, while I was busy trying to figure out the latest package dependency hell I was in, I also wanted some asshole yelling "YOUR A FUCKING MORON! WHEN YOU GROW 2 BRAIN CELLS MAYBE YOU COULD FIGURE THIS OUT" over and over again, I think I could find someone cheaper than Linus Torvalds.
