In this topic we'll try to cover the major areas of difficulties that are faced by people who are new to the Linux operating system. We'll show you how to do things in Linux that you do in Windows, show you some of the features of this ‘new' operating system and drop in a few tips and tricks that will make your life easier. We will assume that you have never used Linux but have used Windows and are familiar with basic concepts such as files and folders, starting programs, etc.
This article aims to point you in the right direction for learning Linux and focuses on helping you stand on your own two feet when using it rather than having to refer to a piece of paper every time you have a problem. At the end of the day, the best way to 'learn' how to use Linux, is to actually use it and experiment yourself rather than simply reading about it.
Play around with it, experiment, break it, fix it and everything will become clear very quickly.
So, without further delay, here is the breakdown of the topics we've covered for you:
Section 1: Why Use Linux?
Section 2: The Linux File System.
Section 3: The Linux Command Line.
Section 4: Installing Software On Linux.
Section 5: Advanced Linux Commands.
Section 6: Linux File & Folder Permissions.
