Linux is becomming a really popular alternative to the Windows Operating systems, the main reason is because it is free, not only that but relatively easy to use. the Graphical User Interface (GUI) is now more or less like that of windows. Linux is generally the Hackers OS of choice, this isbecause the it enables the user to directly interact with the OS to make the most out of it, this usually from the command line.I have found a really good tutorial for those who wish to learn the Command User Interface (CUI) of Linux.
My general advice is to not rush into it but to take one step at a time, heres the Link—>>>Linux Essentials
