cli bare bones distro


I think ill use it to try to set up a server to begin with as it would be a decent way to learn. I have had a little read and it seems that linux tends to have server and desktop versions. Do you think I should start off with a desktop version to get used to linux?

Ohhh... you don't have any experience with Linux whatsoever?

I was going to recommend void, but that's probably way beyond your grasp and you'll be quite quickly pulling your hairs out (you need to know what you're doing with that distribution).

How about AntiX? You can run it from a live environment, no install needed. Once you feel comfortable, you could install it and use it as a desktop.

Void is actually much nicer to use than other distributions if you're new.

A lightweight distro may make learning & getting around Linux easier to start with.
AntiX has a 'base' version, you can run it 'live', I suggest taking a look for yourself.

sid netinst

If you install it without a net connection you won't get a desktop* to start... ie net install or bare bones.
