I’m interested in learning the Linux distribution (Ubuntu) for newbies. I have very little knowledge on how to set up prompts and commands, but I really would like to learn. Where do I start. What do you recommend?
This is where you start: http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/ubuntu-an-absolute-beginners-guide

other versions : http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/All_Versions

use google for more and specific tutorials.
use the os yourself, and play with the options, whenever you face any problem, google it, or post a question on muo answers
I would get started by learning about Linux in general. MakeUseOf compiled the 5 Excellent Downloadable eBooks To Teach Yourself Linux which is a very good start. The documentary, RevolutionOS provides a detailed account for the Linux history as well.
Next, head over to LinuxTopia and find a guide (a href="http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Ubuntu_10.x_Essentials" target="_blank">Ubuntu link) specific to the distribution you're going to use and join a forum which is based on the distribution. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube tutorials to go along with those as well.
Most distributions have documentation, Ubuntu is no exception. You can read the documentation for Ubuntu here.
