Depending on your computer, you may be able to put the same one.

I'm going to assume (naively since I am only friends with retired men
and not a retiree myself) that your interest is mostly about continuing
to learn and possibly helping some organisations you know about or
friends of yours. If this is the case, then let us know exactly what
you're interested in and we can probably point you to some good online

Yes. The command line is basically the same on all of those.

There are some differences between RedHat-based Linux versions and
Debian-based ones (like Ubuntu and Kubuntu), but you probably won't see
those differences until you start changing startup programs (update-rc.d
vs chkconfig) or installing programs (rpm and yum vs dpkg and apt).

What is normal? Normal is yesterday and last week and
  last month taken together.
