I've always learned better just from doing than reading books or watching videos and I think that is the best way to go in IT.
So I was wanting to setup a virtual Linux network on my home computer using VMWare (unless you guys have a better idea). I figured a linux server and 3 machines would be a good way to play around and learn. Any suggestions on which distro of linux I should learn and any websites that can help me (especially how-to's) would be very grateful.
Thanks.submitted by r0ninar1es

GamingOnLinux: Leadwerks has come a very long way since the initial Kickstarter campaign, there is now a 3rd beta available for certain backers.
I have been trying to get a pen drive to boot Debian debian-7.4.0-amd64-netinst for two days. Tried from Windows disk partitioned type to xboot and I cannot make it work.
The problem is I dont have a linux system where to make a linux boot.
Any suggestions on how to ?
Thanks,submitted by shALKE

I was very surprised today when I criticised one of Linus' usual hateful rants to be almost universally criticised. I guess it shows what I already know, that this aggressive form of communication is not only accepted but lauded.
I find it very uncomfortable working in a male dominated industry, to be confronted by aggression every single day. Really there hasn't been a day at my job where I haven't gotten some passive aggressive remark from a programmer that's completely insensitive to those around them and then 5 times as much aggression over e-mail. I've moved jobs 5 times but it's the same at every company and it makes me so sad and unhappy that I can't get a job where we can respect each other.
I really want to know if the experience of other women working with Linux has been the same. I also would like comments from men, I want to know what positive things you think this aggressive form of communication can bring to the table? Is it really normal to expect this kind of treatment in all IT jobs?submitted by NakamuraSawa
