LINUX skills

I started interacting with UNIX systems before Linux came out. I have never been a LINUX developer though. I’ve had at least LINUX box up and operating for a couple decades. They are handy to have around and useful for odd tasks. The GUI’s have come a long way, but as a UNIX admin told me mumble years ago, “If you aren’t using the command line, you’re doing it wrong.”

If you want to improve your LINUX skills, here is a good, and relatively cheap method. Pick up a Raspberry Pi, load Raspbian LINUX (or Ubuntu is another option), and work your way through “The LINUX Command Line by William Shotts.

I’m going with Raspbian. This way you can learn to fill in the gaps (example: no ‘cal’ command, so it’s ‘sudo apt install ncal’ for you).
