Hi!

Use it!!! No, really. Install a distro, do most - if not all - of your work in a terminal. You will be forced to learn new things every day.

But, most importantly, if you are INTERESTED, then you are half way there.

Good luck!
HMW

Welcome to LQ!

Noting that your status shows as Windows 10 user... This is correct usually, but also depends what system you happen to be on at the time.

So as HMW says, "use Linux".

Figure out what you want to do with Linux too. For instance if you just want to use it for everyday use and explore it, then install it, or run it on a virtual machine. Me? I usually pick a dedicated system and install Linux on that as the sole operating system for it and then I use that system on an everyday basis. Prior to this what I'll do is run Live CD/DVD/USB, which is that I'll have a Linux boot media of the correct type for my machine and when I boot, I will not install, but just run and try Linux out on that machine to ensure that it does boot and things generally work, such as mouse, screen, sound, networking, etc; and then I'll install it. That's just me, there are other ways to use it, such as a virtual machine.

As far as figuring out what you want to do with it. You could be aspiring to be a Linux systems administrator, a programmer, or a user of it who explores more about the OS than an average user. This is up to you, try some stuff out, and if you have more detailed questions, please post some new threads. Check out the Site FAQ also.

Agree with the above posts. Install it on a computer or in a virtual machine and use it as your main operating system to familiarize yourself with it. Learn basic commands for changing directories, moving/copying files, updating your system, installing/removing packages. ALL IN THE COMMAND LINE.

Always backup your stuff. ;-)

Depending on how deep you want to burrow CLI is not a must for all these days. Most of us growing up with it defiantly had to and as an "administrator" (dad or whatever) is probably not a bad idea but for example Apper's settings can do automatic updates... not that a GUI makes it easier to swim. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/is...nd-089307.html

Edit\Add: especially with the small amount of info we have. Rishikesh Tiwari could be a graphic designer? Again, not that CLI would hurt.

Another good resource is Going Linux. It has a large library of screencasts, articles, and podcasts, mostly oriented about how to do things with and in Linux.
