Did you ever use MS-DOS? The Linux command line isn't all that different.
That beats me - I once left the Physics department's PDP8 printing prime numbers on the teletype all weekend - but a roll of paper reading "FART!" all the way along would have been much more effective!Yeah a little bit but most of the time only to change disks and directories and run games!! I have found some not too scary looking sites with Linux for Beginners I might start to go through. I think at face value it struck me that when OS's had developed into things you could operate with the tip of your finger suddenly if felt like Linux wanted to drag me right back to weekends with C&VG typing loads of lines of BASIC in!! BUT the Pi was all about teaching kids (and their Dads) that you can do more with a computer than get a high score so that's what I'm gonna learn meself!! My utopian daydream is that one day I may actually come up with something that ends up on the Hummy - rather than my current 30 odd year old personal best of
10 PRINT "FART"
20 GOTO 10
