Why Learn Linux?


One of the most fundamental aspects of Linux is the learning and education it not only promotes but provides. Some people who have spent many years using a point-and-click type operating system claim that Linux is difficult and confusing to use. Years ago, this may have been the case but not anymore as can be noticed from the global adoption rate of Linux based distributions such as Ubuntu and Mint. Linux is being deployed globally at an exponential rate and as such there is no better time than the present to learn how to work with the technology either at a user level or from a developers perspective.
