Bringing a Windows mindset to a GNU/Linux world

Misc

I just ran across a level of stupid so off the charts I had to immediately comment on it here lest my inaction unwittingly foster an environment tolerant of such stupidity. Allow me to quote from a post on Linuxforums:

When I say cd’d I mean I used the command cd, to change directory. So for example say I downloaded and extracted the drivers to the desktop I would open a Konsole window and type:

sudo cd /home/sebmaster/desktop/[folder extracted to]/

(You probably dont need sudo but I have got into the habit of adding it before pretty much everything)

Those of you are familiar with GNU/Linux should see this heaping mound of stupidity for what it is immediately, and will likely find the following explanation superfluous. For the rest of you, here’s a detailed explanation.
