Linux - newbie MUST learn - help?
I need to learn Linux for work and also because I am just fed up with windows and like linux quite a bit from what I have seen but my dilemma is this.
Most companies use RedHat so I am trying to figure out if I need to start with RedHat for learning so I can learn the commands, etc or if I can start with suse or mandriva and then move to redhat easily? I know a bit as I am in the techie field so I know ssh, and a great amount of IT in general.
Linux I am new to so because it will help for work and personal use I want to start in the right place.
The one thing I know so far is some commands seem the same but the package update utilities are quite different. Mandriva strikes me as very "like" windows with all the gui functionality, fedora/redhat which seems to be geared more towards the experienced linux user and suse which seems in the middle.
I just want to spend alot of time on this but not learn something for personal use when I should learn it for work really even more then personal use.
THANKS in advance.
