My first post here – starting a linux experiment:
First of all, I would like to thank Tyler B for helping me get started by patiently answering my level 0 linux questions.
Iâ€™ve installed linux several times in the last ten years, sometimes for fun, but usually when required for school. Â Iâ€™ve even developed a linux app complete with a GUI and DB integration. Â But even with all this exposure to linux Iâ€™ve managed to learn very little about it. Â How is that possible? Â Well, if you stick to pre-configured dev environments with working tools, avoiding learning about the OS is easy.
My new project has a different motivation. Â Rather than using Linux to complete a project, using Linux is the project. Â I want to understand how linux works and I think the best way to start is to â€œlearn by doingâ€. Â My plan is to use linux on my main home computer for everything except Windows gaming, which is rare for me anyways. Â I would then like to move on to LFS.
TL;DR: Iâ€™m going to install and learn about linux.
