Yes, it's heresy.

 

According to the original Greek, heresy, ieresis, means CHOICE - often at odds with the establishment.

 

Ah, so. There should be more heresy in the world !!!

Here's a good introduction to  the Command Line.

 

http://linuxcommand.org/index.php

 

It's better to buy the book, available on Amazon.

 

Master the Command Line and you will become a true linux super user.

Thanks for the link, but you don't need Adobe Reader to view pdf files, and I'm not sure how you would go about installing that on Linux anyway. Most popular Linux distros come with a pdf reader already installed, but none of them will be Adobe. I normally use Okular, and you can also use modern versions of Chrome and Chromium browsers to view pdf files.

More info here:

Hope this helps.

You're welcome.

Have you read these manuals too?

You would of course come across how to download these pdfs with something simple such as wget, change pdftotext and read them in more or less all in the CLI, in some of these "Linux for Beginners" type guides. Far from needing Adobe Reader, you don't even need a GUI! :)

I've not read the first two but I have reviewed them and thought they might be suitable for someone with little or no experience of linux. I am new to linux myself but am well conversant with UNIX which I used to write C programs during my career as a software engineer. I am learning using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS which i like as there seems to be prospects for customization. Perhaps when I have more experience I will try Gentoo.

 

I must admit that I still run Windows machines and use them frequently, perhaps you think this is heresy.

 

I'm only interested in the cfajohnson for it's content in linux programming. I realise that some of it's content may only be of specialist interest.
