    must agree, its been a very interesting conversation. I must say, i am a Windows noob, so i have no idea what you mean about Vista/Explorer.

    oh, and im in no way proficient in Terminal. i can do a couple of things and i know a couple of commands. nothing much really.

    I would know a lot more about Terminal if I would have kept at working with Linux the way I was and maybe should get back into it. I am in the middle somewhere between Van and the non terminal people. I can do a lot in it but am not 100% proficient.

    The Terminal should be left to people who really know it as it really can get a person into trouble if they do not know what they are doing.

    No better way to learn it than to seriously bonk it up and have to figure out how to fix it

    I know... that's completely evil isn't it?

    Actually I agree. I have learned a lot that way and you never forget it either!

    Mess it up then fix it and then you really have learned something!

    The best way to learn things is to learn it without worry of the consequences. Unfortunately, if you have no quick way of fixing it, it's probably not the best way. Hence the VM suggestion (you can easily get a free Unix variant that is close enough).
