The good thing about having my job situation sorted out is that I know I have time to work on learning linux. For the last six months I've been wandering around my OS, trying to just coexist with the damn thing. Not that I don't love it, or that I like Windows, but it's hard to switch to such a technical OS when you don't have time to learn what it can do. So I started tutorials on the Linux Knowledge Base today, and already I feel better about it.
Some of it's lost on me, I admit.
Some of it isn't, and I'm getting more comfortable with the command line. Very important.
