||No way am I a Linux guru; but I'll share what I know. One
thing I've learned is to always take notes.
Keep a text file (e.g. commands.txt) for reference with commands
you use and a short description of them. A month later, when
you may have forgotten that obscure command, you won't have
to ask someone or look it up. You will have that text file
that is custom made for you. That's how my "Cookbook"
started. With Linux, we all benefit by from help one another
and can always keep learning.
Linux or Windows? Which OS is better?
For me, I don't pick favorites with operating systems (OS).
I just want it to work, and spend less time getting it to
work. At home, I use Windows because it is the quicker to
set-up new hardware and easier to work with video or sound.
Even though I like Linux, I don't want to spent hours at home
I use what is appropriate. For example, I developed this
website on with a Windows based OS. But after uploading them
to the web server, these pages are served to you by Linux
based RedHat OS (cheaper hosting). I have to know the web-building
and graphics programs in Windows to be effective in designing
the site. However, once the files are uploaded, I need to
know BASH (the Linux stuff below, Bourne Again SHell) and
a text editor (e.g. Pico, Vim) to tweek the files (configure
and move files) on the server.
I will not have a Windows help section because compared to
Linux, it does not need that much explaining. However, there
are links to websites that offer Windows help.
