DO NOT use ubuntu, unless you are using it for desktop usage.
if are really interested to learn core linux and want to understand its whole structure, then use slackware.

there is nothing about ubuntu that prevents you from learning how to use "core linux" (whatever that is). sure, it sets stuff up for you nicely, but that doesn't mean ubuntu "hides" anything from you. you can still fiddle with the config files the same way.

weren't you posting about suse just a few months ago, asking which distribution newbies should use?

slackware is good for learning but it is for those who already know how to use Linux little bit


and he is asking about ABC

think if you are a newbie on linux ?
will you be able to fdisk on slackware ?
