Welcome to the forums!

A great way to learn Linux is to surf the forums, find a user with an interesting problem, and help them solve the problem. For example, find users with Postfix questions and do your best to research the solutions. You will simultaneously be learning Linux while also contributing to the community.

Good luck and welcome.

Have you install Linux to a VM or a physical machine?

Once you've done that then Welcome to the club.
