I didn't know how to find files by contents and the man pages were way too confusing. What did I do? I knew from experience that if I just asked, I'd be told to read the man pages even though it was too hard for me. Instead, I did what works. Trolling. By stating that Linux sucked because it was so hard to find a file compared to Windows, I got every self-described Linux Guru around the world coming to my aid.Funny. Note that this post is tongue-in-cheek; I am aware that the issue has many facets. Random thoughts:
- Some people should indeed simply read TFM.
- There are Linux sub-communities that are very newbie-friendly.
- I find some open source voices needlessly combative.
