Lightbulb New Kid on The Block


Hello to all. My IT teacher introduced Linux to me to day, so I decided to sign up. I have a ton of questions, but I think I'll just read along first. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what Linux is. And I'm open to any input, so feel free to help me get caught up.
