    Lightbulb Linux - Guide Please


    Dear Friends,

    Good Day!

    I've just joined this form to extend my knowledge in Linux OS, below are some Key factors about MYSELF;

    - I just enrolled in Linux OS Forum.
    - I never Operate Linux OS, neither I obtained beginner's level of knowledge in Linux OS.
    - I am an Network Guy, I possess rich Network / Wireless knowledge & experience, I hold some certifications (CCDA/CCDP/CCNP/CCIE(R)/WFRE).

    Friends! I m seeking an guidance from You all Experts that from where I start this journey?? I have seen several Linux (Arch Linux, Debian Linux, Gentoo Linux, Knoppix Linux, Mandriva Linux, Mint Linux, Slackware Linux, SuSE Linux, Red Hat / Fedora Linux, Ubuntu Linux) WHAT are these flavors? I have downloaded "Fedora-20-Alpha", but don't know how to Start / install & Operate, I want to learn Networking stuffs in Linux.

    Friends I know my queries are somewhat wired so please correct me and guide me and help me!

    Appreciate your response in advance!

    Thanks again!

    Welcome kaljaz.

    I wouldn't start with an Alpha version. You will likely find the initial experience more enjoyable if you start with a Stable version. Beyond that it's a matter of preference in environments. Installation instructions are available for any distro you choose. All the desktops are some combination of a Linux kernel with a desktop environment and some management utilities. Examples from what I use: XUbuntu is what I use most - it use XFCE as it's desktop. Light but full featured. I run OpenSuse with Gnome3 on a PC. It's a full features desktop. Very nice. I also use LUbuntu on a laptop that runs on a 12v system. Lubuntu uses LXDE which is said to use less battery. It isn't as nice a desktop in my opinion but works very well.
