So you have decided to try a free software operating system such as GNU/Linux, congratulations. Here's an introduction to the command line for novices that teaches some simple commands such as ls, cd and pwd and explains how to learn more.
The free software model of software development is about rapid detection of problems, rapid repair of those problems, and the rapid acceptance and advance of entirely new ideas. These conditions depend upon the collaboration of users and developers from a wide variety of backgrounds. The original community of Linux developers was self-selecting. For the most part they were young 'hobbyists' with a broad interest in software who wanted something more adventurous.
