Be a geek with linux

Posted 01-18-2012 at 09:23 AM by Upendra Pratap Singh


this blog is going to be the first one to appear on this forum.

In this introductory blog, I would like to share my experience with those who are new to Linux.

What I have really learnt is that in order to have a good understanding of the concepts and principles present in Linux, one needs to put aside the easy ways one usually finds in Windows operating system. Beginners should ensure that most of the operations performed by them should be through the terminal window and not through the in-built functionality(in the form of softwares and programs that are there inherent to Linux). To put in a nutshell, they should avoid mouse clicks as far as possible and should rely on the commands which make Linux quiet different from Windows.

In this way, they are not only going to think something different from Windows GUI, but will also understand the usage of the commands in Linux(under various situations). This will greatly boost their confidence with this platform and will also help them to appreciate the features of Linux which(actually are far better than those offered in Windows).
