The only way to learn nix is thru experience and people have to figure it out on their own. It's no prob helping people along but it annoys me sometimes when people ask for step by step instructions on how to do something. I try to tell people to search for this or that alot, it's the only way they are going to learn, rather than step one, do this, step two. etc.
People always threaten to go back to windows...lol....but they almost always come back.
