cout << "Hello there";


Finally registered! And glad to be into a great community like this.

As the great majority, I came to learn. For several times I tried to install and use linux, but always got back to Windows.

But, because of professional needs, I need to learn at least the basics of it. So here I am. Im a programmer and tester. And obviously, a computer fanatic (Yes, i still turn on my TK-90).

Hope to stay here until the point i can effectively contribute to the community, helping others and discussing solutions.

For now, im only a newbie.

Thumbs up Welcome


Welcome to LQ Forums. You have come to the right place for help.

As a beginner I suggest you start with a Live CD to get the hang of things. I usually use Ubuntu or Kubuntu. For windows users, the KDE desktop is easier to learn, than Gnome so I would suggest Kubuntu to start with. Get to know how the file system works, which is very different to windows. Also play with the command line at a terminal and get to know how the permissions work. That will give you a good start, as those are the bits that can throw you off course.

Once you can find your way around the files system and permissions, look at the software install/update tools. These are usually called package managers, and IMHO are the single most important advantage of Linux over windows. It's a quite different philosophy, but once you get to know how it works you will have cracked working with Linux.

Good luck and don't be afraid to ask stupid questions!

When you say you tried "linux", I don't know which distributions you are refering to, and I don't care. My advice is if any of those you tried were within the past 2 years, do Not try them again. Move on to some other distro. There are too many really friendly distros to bother getting stuck on the archaic ones.
