No. I don't think so. I was poking my head around in the other place's Linux forum. There was a post in there that got me thinking about this particular topic. Am I really learning Linux using this Ubuntu install? No sir. Not at all. Ubuntu is so streamlined and packaged, that I really don't have to learn to use many commands. I can navigate to (and use) most aps via the GUI. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. Ubuntu has given me something no other distro has...and that is an install that any dummy can operate right out of the gate. All my devices were recognized and drivers provided (with the exception of my mouse). The fact that it worked prevented me from getting frustrated and allowed me to start to use Linux rather than just install Linux. So, I may not be learning much right now. But the fact that it works hopefully will encourage me to explore and learn for the future.
