I'm in the process of learning it myself. Once I grasp the basics I should be good to go. Orestisfra does a pretty good job explaining the different commands for us noobs to be starting off with!


Maybe this youtubes link will get you on the right path also. Here's one by SysAdmGirl  newbielink:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imDrXVVHowU#ws [nonactive]

How did you learn the command line so quick?! I bought 'the linux bible' and I'm learning alot from that.. and making a few mistakes also haha. Its frustrating at times, after being used to windows for so long but im glad to be rid of it now and exploring the linux world.

I learned alot about windows only to learn that I know nothing about linux ;)

i also did that. well i learned linux the hard way! i put arch ;D ;D ;D i ended up having a damaged system, then i put a bunch of versions of ubuntu, then a bunch of versions of linux mint and finally i kept linux mint 13 as it was more stable and less possible to ruin everything! all these in just a week or 2. pour laptop... 6 formats to the HDD in just 1 week! finally i saw some videos, asked some friends, read some tutorials... now i know some basic staff about linux.

I definitely have to agree on using Arch to learn the terminal, and Gentoo is even better for it, but much more time consuming. For that matter, you can learn a lot in any distro by just switching to tty1-tty6. Very useful, especially for trouble shooting. If you stop xorg from loading on boot, it'll really force you to learn a lot, and shave a few seconds off boot time ;) (though I'd recommend installing w3m or links or something first so you can use Google from the command line lol).
