One of the reasons I want to switch to Linux-based is I hate Windows and #2 I'm tired of getting or dealing with viruses that is messing up my music collection.  I thought about getting a MAC, but I think with you guys here it will be fun and time consuming learning Linux stuff :) ________________________________ From: Mark A.

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 communities. > >Question: will the skills you learn in Bash Shell in Red Hat be useful for all CLI's such as Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian, etc? > 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?
