Let me start out by saying I'm a Windows XP user, (*checks for incoming
rocks*) as much as I hate Microsoft I do like their OS.
A little like a racist saying "I hate the people but I like their food"
Recently I have Installed FC2 on VMware to expand my knowledge (or lack of)
Fedora Core 2 was recommended to me as a "nice" distro, and compared to RH
7.3 (which I also have Installed on VMware) I like it.
OK, so, my question is:
As someone who is coming to Linux from XP, Can someone point me to some
recourses that will explain in a fair amount of detail some of the command
tools included in Linux and some instruction on how to use them and what
file extension is associated with what application?.
Being an XP user im used to double clicking on a file and letting the
wizards do their thing. Compiling and configuring an applications
installation on Linux is a little daunting at the moment, not that im not
keen, but most information I have found on problems I have come across,
assume that I have some kind of experience with Linux already.
I don't just want to know just *How* to perform tasks with Linux, I want to
*Understand* Linux, and be able to use it confidently as I do a MS OS. Just
looking for a "Boost up" in getting started with Linux I suppose.
Cheers for any assistance,
