    I can't agree that a linux user isn't even a newbie level in unix. It depends on which linux distro one was using. Slackware is very BSD style. I mean the start-up process and everything. I might as well try FreeBSD

    Try it, and then report back how much or little trouble you had with it. It's not as easy to swap from one to the other as you might think.

    I think it all depends on what your definition of 'newbie' is... does that mean someone who can use X but is lost at the console shell? or someone who can't compile a custom kernel? I use Linux, FreeBSD and even MINIX (on my 12Mhz '286) and i learned the basics such as
    working with files/directories , using vi, etc.... all from a (great) book called 'Mastering UNIX'

    You have to admit that there are some transferable skills here!

    im more lost in x than in the linux cli.
    i only run linux in the cl.
    i wont even use a window manager unless its windows, and as it works out i really dont like using the dos commands compared to a linux cli. dos is just straight derranged, learning dos is like learning how to talk to a mental patient, watch what u say or who knows what might happen.

    I guess it depends on what linux version/distro you use

    Gave it a whirl about a year ago (BSD), i felt like i was in bizzaro world.
    Definantly not my cup of tea.

    I installed FreeBSD 5.3. Hmm, it is different, yet I was still able to configure my internet connection, but I am much more comfortable with Slackware. I think I will stick to Slack

    That's about my experience as well. I can get it to work with enough fiddling, but I just prefer SuSE, so I'm sticking with that.
