I have finally made the leap into the world of Linux by installing Ubuntu 14.04.
So far, the only changes that I have made are as follows :
1. Enable Partner & Independent Repositories in Ubuntu Software Centre : I have edited the software sources to include Canonical Repositories (all 4 boxes now checked)
2. Software Updater : I ran this until no further updates were found.
I am not sure if there is another resource available somewhere but I sure could use some help with "getting started with a basic , secure set up" as right now, I cannot even decide which firewall should be used (Firestarter, SmoothWall, etc), which network tools I should have installed (Nagios, Wireshark, Nessus etc) or how to modify insecure default system settings.
Any assistance whatsoever would be greatly appreciated!
