Linux for Beginners by Nathan Clark

If you have always wanted to try Linux but feel overwhelmed by the complexity of switching to an unknown operating system, then keep reading. Have you tried to install Linux in the past only to get stuck with a broken system, eventually giving up and resorting back to your old Windows or macOS? Or are you overwhelmed by which distribution to choose, using a terminal for the first time, or simply being able to perform the tasks you normally would on your old system? It may take you weeks to adjust to the Linux filesystem, right? Wrong. Linux is increasingly becoming more popular, with companies like Google, Facebook and IBM using Linux in one form or another. This is due to its superior privacy, reliability and security. Fortune Business estimates that the Linux market will increase by 402% in the next 7 years, making now the best time to get started with Linux. So if the mythical Linux learning curve is holding you back, don't let it. We call it a myth, because with the right step-by-step guidance, that is exactly what it is - a myth.
