post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey i'm just another Windows User that wants to be able to use linux to make other windows users think i'm cooler than them, so if anyone could give me some stuff to do in linux so i could learn more about it i'd greatly appreciate it.

Ubuntu is nice. You can do a lot with it very easily.

If you want to go hardcore, learn how to crack WEPs with Linux tools lolol

Start with Ubuntu, and you can move on to more difficult distros if you feel the urge.

Nowai!

Start with slackware, as it requires you to learn about Linux whilst using it, as opposed to Ubuntu which, as you said, is easy mode.
