Im using Fedora and going off of the linux.org site. I am in the begginers course and I tried doing this command mkdir --verbose my_friends and it didnt do anything, I was wondering if that might be because the site is going off of debian, or would that matter? Are Debian and Fedora the same or similar? Or are they different? And if they are different can I still keep using fedora with the beginners course on linux.org. reason why I am using fedora is because Im taking Linux in college and that is what the instructor has decdied we are going to learn. I have fedora set up on VM wondering if that might cuase a problem as well, thank you for your time.
