Newbie Alpine Ecosystem
The Alpine Newbie Ecosystem is documentation designed, as the name says, for new users of Alpine. All pages will be some kind of guide to form a manual for Alpine Linux.
Alpine is the OS (Operating System), that runs on your machine. Programs such as a web browser run on the OS, and web pages like "wiki.alpinelinux.org" are handled by the web browser.
Keep in mind that today due to the great popularity of Docker, Alpine Linux is one of the most deployed operating systems currently in use, because within every other operating system that uses docker, the docker image it uses is almost always Alpine Linux.

|Alpine newbie apk packages||Alpine packages, the "apk" command line tool that indexes, retrieves and installs sets of precompiled software for your installation.||
