I'm wanting to learn a lot about LINUX before I download any distro. I've finally remembered some of the programs (?) that are contained in ALL LINUX distros, so I'd like to read up and study them. One, PERL is a programming language and that's all I know about that one. I'm sure there are others that are run by the "command line". I grew up in Commodore DOS 1.0, LOL! I loved using the command line and when I switched to M$ DOS 5.0 I loved it even more. I could type in a command and make it work, LOL! Then "Win$u
cks 3.0" came along a stolen program from Apple's GUI and it went downhill real fast. Now, nothing works the way I would expect it to and the M$ DO$ command line is a waste of my time.
Oh, almost forgot. The two "servers" as I remember are Apache and Samba. I'm sure there are more, I just haven't discovered them. It's a shame that the distros don't have a site that gives the name of the program and what it does. That way, you would never download something you didn't need. But, that's too much like right, huh?
Oh, I see on here there are articles telling you to "write your OWN Linux and then "Compile" it. IF you don't know how to program in Linux, how would you "bond" (compile) all of the mini-programs together? Yes, I need a LOT of HELP and so does every other
, LOL! Maybe if I figure it out, I'll write a book or put it on the web.
Well, back to figuring a conversion from a ssb 2 meter Quagi up to a long-boom 2 meter FM Quad. The boom is near 30 feet long.
