New member, although I've lingered about this website for about 7 years, just began doing the missions and got stuck on Basic 7 and became overwhelmed at all the information there is to learn/where to start. Thanks for the read, looking forward to my journey :mrgreen:

Who am I to disagree with -Ninjex-?

No one, of course, but I must do it!

Where it is suggested that noobs get Ubuntu to learn them up some Linux. I just left Ubuntu. Know what I got? OPENSUSE!!! Slick as hell. Man this is a sexy OS. If Japanese scientists and engineers will hurry the hell up, it'll have my babies.

I chose to tell people to start with Ubuntu for specific reasons. The two most important being that
1: It's a Debian derivative.
2: It has a large community for support when you run into troubleshooting issues.

OpenSuse is RPM based, so when/if you change to Kali Linux, things will be different. Telling a user to start with Ubuntu will eliminate the confusion process that might spawn on them. Anyways, with that being said, I'm glad you are exploring other systems, it's not a bad thing.

Ah, gotcha.

How different are Debian and RPM based OSs? So far, the two aren't /too/ different at the level of understanding that I'm currently add.

At the core all *nix based systems are, well... Unix based/derived. Debian uses apt instead of rpm, aside from that, there are a few differences readily found on the Internet. Most Red Hat or Open SuSE derived systems were backed by a corporation one time or another. Debian itself has always been a community effort. Defining distributions are the differences in configuration (Debian at install, Red Hat manually), release cycles (either it's deemed 'stable' or 'up-to-date with new technologies' or a 'rolling release'), programs/applications provided and used, amounts of source code available of programs running, amount of community support/how often you're told to RTFM (for example Ubuntu/Mint versus Debian/Arch/BSD) and a lot of other small to large differences.

I had to figure out how to get past the time submit for forum registration, did it. Wish I would of figured that out before, like before I read this guide. I had a great many words to say about it! I hope these words can take the place, and suffice enough for what I was going to say.

This Guide is Great! I enjoy reading and well this guide is very well written/typed up, whichever it was. I totally approve of guides like this, because they are not watered down at all, and they serve the community a great deal, when teaching New Members! Hope that will be able to give back, what I wanted to say. Peace.
