Teaching Linux

I have been using a *NIX system for a few decades now and it seems to become more challenging as time goes by to teach people about linux command line. I cannot tell if I’m turning into a crumudgeon or if there has been a fundamental shift in the mentality of computer users, especially new system administrators. Is learning a list of useful commands just not done today? Are people happy to use an interface to accomplish most things and then just go without advanced features? I don’t know, but I do know it seems harder now to teach command line usage than it was 5 years ago.

    I agree but don’t despair. My son is learning linux from the command line and is looking for a good laptop to install linux on to continue the learning process. With Christmas coming up, if you have any suggestions for him, that would be great. Also, which linux install would be best for him.
