    So I've just installed Ubuntu onto VMware workstation, so far it's looking pretty good,I definitely like the feel of it, it seems to have taken my favourite features from windows and mac and mashed them together. It's definitely a lot faster than anything I've ever used before. I might also end up trying out Linux mint.

    Glad you're liking it. Friendly advice: if you're not already planning to, learn yrself some bash.
    Don't fear the terminal. the terminal is your friend

    Yeah, it's actually 100x better than I expected
    I've been looking online about bash commands, do you know any good tutorials?

    Personally I find reference guides (like the one I linked to) much more useful than tutorials. Just my learning style. There was a good tutorial I read once, I'll try to find it for you.

    these aren't the ones I was thinking of, but try out:

    http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php
    http://arachnoid.com/linux/shell_programming.html
    http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/ <-- just about anything Zed Shaw writes is worth reading

    I'll have a look at them. I got some hands on experience with the shell today, spending a good 20 minutes trying to make desktop icons work, by just using the GUI, then realizing that it only takes about 20 seconds with the shell
