Stuff can be hard. Stuff can also be easy. Some things here are hard. Some things are easy. Let’s define some difficulty tiers.
No worries here, folks! Everything should be done with a GUI with maybe some stuff needing a command or two, or maybe just editing some text files. Instructions should come in picture form.
Operating systems in this tier are Ubuntu Linux, Windows, or OS X.
Still not hard, but you’re expected to know how not to break things in a terminal or text-based interface. GUI is optional, but used on occasion.
Operating systems in this tier are Debian Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Rocky Linux.
You are at home with a terminal and all things can be accomplished with it. You know how not to break a system with a terminal, but also how to fix serious system-level issues.
Operating systems in this tier are Arch, *BSD, Slackware Linux, Gentoo Linux.
You compile your software from source and surf the web with Lynx. If you don’t know what that means you are a poser.
You run Suicide Linux because anything less is for little babies.
