Thats great work with the terminal!
When I started out with C++ I was already a bit familiar with it since I used Ubuntu at the time, and we have command line package managers (instead of the app store). That being said, I still don't know some of the commands in your picture there 😂, but I do know quite a few languages (although I'm still learning).


Thanks for the kind words, Gavin! And, I've actually been thinking about installing Ubuntu on my Lenovo - kinda wanna see what's outside the Mac/Windows box. I've yet to explore...


Ohh I challenge you to a standard Arch Linux install. That's probably the quickest way to learn quite a bit about the command line and Linux at the same time. (We even have command line web browsers if you need to refer to the arch wiki, yeah that's a thing)

If you're really feeling daring, try Gentoo. Although your hair'll probably grow white before Chrome compiles 😂
