Hi, I'm looking to start into linux i am currently running ubuntu in virtualbox right now checking out the program. I'm not experienced in coding but know how to run simple commands in the command line to navigate and such and do basic looking through files etc. I would like to start on learning more but have no idea where to start or what the aim would be. It may sound ridiculous and wish washy and I understand its hard to help someone if they don't exactly know what they want. I used to mess around when i was younger on ms-dos prompt and such and always found it interesting as well as creating things. One thing leads to another obviously but I have been out of the loop for so long that its hard to know where to start (kind of like coming into a tv show on the fifth season). Mostly I am just wondering if there are any major differences or advantages to running linux. I understand that the software is open source and coded by the "community" but is it more of just another option of os to run that kind of in a way does the same thing as others just a bit different? Like navigation and everything seems simple enough to me, running downloading programs seems pretty simple and the app software section is pretty cool with all the free open source software. Understand I'm not digging at Linux so far I quite like the layout and program availability just is there more to it? Most likely just inexperience talking so if there is something I'm missing or if anyone could shed some light on it more than the youtube videos and countless web pages I have read that all seem to beat around the bush and say the same things. Best way to get an answer is to ask a question.... or write a big paragraph on what's in your head and put it out there! Thanks for your help\insight in advance.
