Learning Linux. The first hour of this workshop will be specifically for new users or Windows users interested in learning more about Linux. John will assume the role of an “average Windows user” checking out Linux for the first time. He will take his “Windows understanding” and see if he can apply it to the Linux operating system. He wants to find out if switching to Linux is as easy as he’s been told. He’ll also want to know if he can do almost everything he did in Windows on the Linux platform. Experienced Linux users may find this presentation too basic.
Following this presentation for Total Beginners, John will have some things for the more experienced users. He will talk about becoming more of a “power user” through keyboard shortcuts and how to set them up. Finally, he will show how he uses “aliases” to speed up his command line activities. Join him to see how easy it is to create and use aliases.
