I need to know how to learn lynux by learning the unix commands and structures in their comparisons to windows.
I just think it would be much easier to learn linux by learning their windows equivelents.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

Try Puppy Linux. Verison 1.0.4 has a windows 9x look and feel. It is a 60meg download.

http://linux.about.com/ has quite a few resources on installing, using and understanding quite a few aspects of Linux. If you ever have any specific problems/questions, be sure to let us know!

Happy Holidays,

After reading your post, and down through the replies, I think something
important has been left out.

First and foremost, GNU/Linux is NOT Windows, nor is it LIKE Windows.
Many people fail to realize that you don't use these to OS types like the other.

Second, Linux is far more powerful and usable than Windows, and has many
commands that Windows would never even think of including.

Third, in many instances, though there are some "similar" commands between the two,
they can tend to work quite differently.

Fourth, there are an astounding number of distributions of Linux, and some have
different ways of doing exactly the same thing. It can get a little confusing at first.

I do believe that the best way to accomplish what you are setting out to do, is to
pick one function at a time in Windows that you'd like to learn in Linux. Then pick
the Linux distro that suits you best in the way it works, and ask on this and other
forums about that function. You will probably get tons of answers and helpful
suggestions, if you include the following:

1) Windows funtion you want to learn the Linux equivalent of.
2) Linux distribution you are using to experiment with.
3) Any other info that might be needed (and will usually be asked for after the initial post)

Keep in mind that Linux, not being Windows, and not working the way Windows does,
that some things won't work the way you expect them to. Some things will work quite
easily, and yet some few others won't work at all.

Many things in Windows are not compatible with Linux. Most being files and applications,
others being certain authentication methods over networks, etc. And it's not the fault of
Linux. You can blame MS and their proprietary systems and software. They don't like to
share anything with anybody. (Especially Linux)
