i am not trying to start a war between which is better or whatever. i know linux has come a long way in the last few years, and it seems to me that linux and Leopard are very similar. now, the reason i am even asking this question is this: i could use Leopard without ever touching the terminal, and would usually be just fine. but i feel that in order to expand my overall computing abilities, it would be good to learn to use the command line more. now, after saying that, how do some of you use the command line and the rest of Leopard together? and, would it help me to learn better by installing some form of linux and using that?
