Discussion on: I need to learn Linux

I was forced to just dive in and learn it in college. Eventually, I got really comfortable with it and now have been using Ubuntu for close to 4 years I think. There was a lot of Googling along the way. 😊 I'd recommend looking for a good virtual machine program and testing the waters that way.

It can be a little intimidating at first, but I promise it's not too bad once you're used to it. I have probably 5 main tools/commands I use in the terminal and once you have your system set up, there's not much you have to do outside of your normal workflow.
