Every few months, we at OStatic add to our roundups of open source resources, tutorials, free open source books, reviews, product comparisons and project tours. These educational toolkits are an essential part of the learning mission we try to preserve at the site. Whether you're looking for resources for working with and enjoying online video and audio, Linux tutorials, offbeat open source applications, or other items of interest, we have quite a few interesting guides on this site. Outside of OStatic, there are also many useful resource collections, too. In this post, you'll find a newly updated collection of our best resource guides, and a number of excelent ones from other open source-focused sites. Hopefully, you'll find something to learn from here, and the good news is that everything found in this post is free.

Here are many of our most popular resource collections, many of them chock full of free, useful tools and educational resources:
