I’ve been havin so much fun with mine, I got the pi 4 integrated into keyboard (pi 400). Ive tried ras-pup, picore And Manjaro and of course rasbian. I re installed rasbian because it runs very well on the pi and it more or less sets it’s self up for you. The Official raspberry pi manual Is also a good read

also wish a merry Christmas to all

In my opinion, the best way to learn Linux is by creating a VirtualBox with a LinuxSystem inside that. That means if make a heavy mistake, nothing happens to your main operating system, like windows.
There are many YouTube Tutorials how to create a VirtualBox with almost any Linux Distrobustion.

Hope this helps.

I totally agree, i have lost count of how many systems ive obliterated in a virtual machine. i use virtual box, you can also clone an install you have created. Im notorious for having 5-10 different distros on my virtual box! virtualiziation is the way to go before you do a full install onto real hardware

Actually i have not read any book about learning Linux yet. I just installed some versions and have many of them on USB and run them every now and them and whatever i need, i search it and learn about that. But i mainly use Ubuntu and distros based on that. I have tried some other architectures but i liked Debian based more. But im gonan consider some books too to learn it better. I'm still searching for the first book :)

instruction about opening llc. I used to read info about how to form an llc in delaware because its hard to start alone. It is good to set big goals and dream big, but surprisingly many budding entrepreneurs and business people at various stages of business development either don’t or can’t grasp what's fully required to hit their goals

Don't be afraid to break your Linux distro and learn from your mistakes.

Haha, i already did this a few years ago. I was learning BASH and i used the "chmod" command to give rwe permissions to every file and directory...then i later found other people talking about this online.

I'm currently just using whatever fancies me online and slowly progressing through this book:


I downloaded this since i was made aware that Fedora is "advanced":


I also recently bought the newest version of the linux command line book since the first version was good and incredibly helpful. The distrowatch website is set as my homepage...

After a bit of a hiatus from Linux, I returned to what felt like a familiar, but new world. My primary materials to get reintroduced:
The Linux Command Line (book by William Shotts) - professional quality, free PDF. I also purchased the softcover to support the author.
Linux Pocket Guide (book by O'Reilly)
Bash Pocket Reference (book by O'Reilly)
(both of the O'Reilly books are good for terse lookups.)

Youtube channels: LearnLinuxTV, TheLinuxExperiment - Both have great series for beginner/intermediate users, and are currently active. I also learned a bit from Joe Collins' channel.

Using linux itself and browsing reddit and forums. I also finished the Linux Unhatced course from CISCO which is very easy and teaches you the very basics of the command line for free. Unfortunately has some translation mistakes in Italian lol but the english version is fine
