    Re: Any Suggestions From The Pros?

    I presume you mean advice about linux for the inexperienced?
    Here are a couple of commands you can't live without.

    1) Apropos
    Want to know the command for something, copy for example.
    Type apropos copy in a terminal and it will list what's appropriate.

    2) man
    Manual pages. A little difficult to read sometimes, but they tell you about a command and all its options.
    Type man cp in a terminal and you'll see how to copy files.

    As for advice about these forums, search first before asking about a problem. Whatever solution you seek may already be here.

    And above all, have fun.
    Some people say I'm a man of few words, but the fact is that most people talk too much without actually saying anything.

    i'll definitely agree to this

    i dropped windows 6 months ago. i think i dual booted for a week, but in that week span i think i went into windows once and found out it was hosed. i figured since windows is hosed now, i would just reinstall and take over the whole hard drive since it was fresh and i didnt have much saved/downloaded. ive learned a lot, but there is still more to learn. ive had a lot of fun doing this and since ive found ubuntu and this forum, ive learned a lot and will keep on going.

    I'd like to drop windwos, but I don't have my personal computer. The computer belongs to the whole family. And there's no way of earning money in free software
    Viller on freenode.
