I'm rather new to linux; Basically I've just used it now and then when I've had to set up or manage web applications; so the only exposure I had was when I SSH'ed to a box. Now I've started using a Mac running OS X 10.6, which I guess is based on linux / unix.
Anyhow, I'm now looking into setting up my own linux laptop and linux server; and my predicament is this:
I feel like I can use most of the shell commands I need to get around, move files, and edit config options, but I really can't tell a difference in the flavors of *nix!
At what point do you see a difference? And without knowing the differences now, and how do I choose one to start with?
