Default Differences between Linux OS's

What are they?

I'm going to run one of my computers in Linux to help me understand shell scripting. I'd like to know the differences between the different Linux systems before I spend hours, days, or weeks with trial and error'ing them all.

Thank you!

Question answered, thank you related post search thing!

Default Re: Differences between Linux OS's

There are so many Linux OS's out there. I mainly use Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server. But if you do some googling, it will give you a good handle on Linux. The support base for Linux is ridiculous

Here is a site that has a lot different distros. http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-mu...multiboot-usb/

Personally I feel that all the linux are the same just different things look different and stripped out or put in.

Some command are change in each flavor of Linux OS. For example for installing packages in ubuntu we use apt-get install in rhel,fedora we use

yum install package name or rpm -ivh package name.
