Looking to play with Linux...
Ok, i've always been a Windows person myself because I know it and the tools to use if I want to do something.
Now linux is getting easier and easier with reguards to drivers and software applications I'm wanting to use it.
Problem is, I feel the only way im going to learn is by formatting my work laptop and just installing it. I have setup vm's in the past with Ubuntu on it, but because its not always there, it's not like I have to use it.
How have you guys gone about teaching yourself it and what distribution of Linux would you use?
I've tried Ubuntu and I got very impatiant with it... waiting for it to boot then anything I wanted to do I had to sudo it etc etc...
With more job descriptions saying "Experience with Linux or OSx" I really need to pick it up :S
Thanks for your advice, much appreciated.
