In this section, I will discuss command line basics to help you get the MOST out of Linux. I will be covering materials using the references listed below and I will share other useful tricks I have discovered over the years. I have an embedded playlist here and I also provide links to the individual episodes for your convenience. If you have questions, start a new thread in this section of the forum so we can keep things nice and tidy. Thanks.

As a new Linux user I'm glad you are doing this series. I'm running Manjaro Linux and haven't booted into Windows in nearly 3 weeks. Have much to learn.

It was the same for me when I transitioned to Linux. You will learn and you will wonder why you did not make the switch sooner. I am glad you find this series useful. Thanks for chiming in and WELCOME to the community.
