I came to know about Linux from this meme.



Seriously folks in class 9 are studying about MS access without knowing the context behind it.
I had to teach my nephew about MS access which i myself knew nothing about.
Computer science syllabus is fucked up in our boards there is no semblance in the entire thing
It's really fucked up we are really fucking learning MYSQL in 10th and Python in 11th. Like wth. Also to note, we've been taught ms office since we were born on a fucking windows 7 and xp

Learning bash scripting and powershell scripting should really be the syllabus. More topics on linux as it's the business standard.

No kernel is the core of the operating system that manages thinks like memory, CPU and other hardware and on top of the kernel you have the shell which is basically the CLI.
Also to mention every windows after ig 3.0 is being build on the same crappy Windows NT kernel

Back in the 90s when I was in school, they started teaching computers in the 3rd grade. The first thing I learnt was LOGO language on a BBC micro computer and later in the 5th grade they started teaching US BASIC programming language.

I learnt VB, MS-Office in my school. Don't remember a thing. And till date I have not able to understand purpose of Access.

My proper intro to computer happened in college few years back. I don't know why but my order of preference is
MAC<<<<WINDOWS<Linux.
But sadly company has given me Mac.

Mac is better than windows technically. Since it's from the same family - linux and that's the BSD family.
VB-Scripting is useful in creating malware. Ms access is horseshi-. Better to learn Ms SQL Server. Nobody uses access.

Its a matter of preference; in college I had clear distinction windows for daily use and linux for dev/programming. Macs just doesn't feel right too me. Also comes with a guilt of overpriced crap.

Why not use python? I think its also used with Ms-Office tools specially Excel.

There is no learning windows, OS is taught based on posix based flavors...for a corporate, windows rules as its AD simplifies a lot of stuff even though underneath it probably implements a flavor of kerberos. For personal use there is simply no justification to use linux anymore....its like first class vs coach class. Whats with Access? No serious business allows link access from Access into databases anymore....its a thing of yesteryears

If you are starting out, go for GO and Python and learn functional programming skills over OO.....conceptual purposes still learn C as its memory management gives you insights into how stuff works in highlevel languages. GO is developed by one of the C guys and is an improvement over C in memory managment simplifications....as far as hacking goes, understand bufferoverflows, network protocols, system libraries, drivers, boot loaders and few others....sql injection and few other major ones are low hanging fruit style and are increasingly caught pretty easily now a days by profilers and so on.

M1 Macs are pretty nice. With VB-Script, I meant to say macros malware which is pretty frequent.
