Switching Over and Mastering
Hello. I have been fascinated by Linux and more specifically Ubuntu for quite some time now. I have been thinking about switching from Windows for a couple years but, have been very hesitant because I know nothing about the terminal language and the real in's and out's. That being said, I would like to know how you mastered linux and what do you think is the fastest way and/or best way for me to do the same.
Also, I have just put together a sort of "bare bones" kit if you will with a dual core 1.6 Ghz processor and the Nvidia ION chipset. If you want to see what it is here is a link: Link to see what I am working with. I am going to be making it a file server and a kind of media server as well. What do you recommend and why?
