Hello, new and learning.


Hi there,

I've been using Linux Ubuntu/Mint/ and Lubuntu for a year now. I intended to learn as I go along; but, it isn't so easy. Thank you for any answers I might receive from questions posted in advance.

Hi & Welcome

The Ubuntu/Linux Bible is a very good book.
The "Linux In A Nutshell" is also a good book as well to learn from.

You can also learn a lot from reading posts, tutorials and articles. Also;
Depending on where you live there are Linux groups that meet once a month at local library's, meeting halls etc. Try using google to find your local group if there is one in your district.

There are other Linux's books on the www.ebookee.org

Good luck

I am also new. But I think linux is very interesting. In learning curve it is challenging other OS. The great things are it is faster, you have to tune it perfectly for achieving quality service specially for servers. And welcome to LQ.

You can "learn linux" using any distro, but some give you more incentive to learn than others. Some try to do everything for you, while others encourage you to think for yourself.

I believe that Slackware is one of the few (if not the only) distro that allows you to remove kernel package on a running system without any further questions asked. With slack you can shoot yourself straight to the foot but that is called experience and if you are willing to accept the challenge of learning curve, your effort will be rewarded with ultimate understanding how and why everything works.
