Willie,

Not sure I followed everything you wanted to do, but you said something about cut and paste. Not sure if you noticed, but one thing in Linux that is real easy is, simply highlighting text places it in a clipboard. Put your cursor where you want it, elsewhere in the document, in another document, on the address line of your browser, Google search window, command line in a terminal, wherever, and click your scroll wheel to paste. Very quick, very handy.  Also, in many applications, you can highlight text then right click on it and have the option to copy, cut, search Google for it, and other options.

I will give you some things may be easier in Windows, like right click drag and drop of files with options to move or copy, however, looking at all the other options that are just so much easier in Linux, makes those few issues easy to overlook.

I don't know how many times I've been in Windows and seen something in a document or email with a web address or other item of interest, highlighted it, went to my browser, clicked the address box, then clicked the scroll wheel, only to have nothing happen, spit "Lousy Windows", then go back to the original location, highlight, right click, select "copy", go back to the browser, right click again and select "paste", and continue. Frustrating.

Pretty soon, you'll find the Linux shortcuts simple reactions without even thinking about them and never looking back on Windows.

Michael

No experience… yet… other than just now downloading and installing on VirtualBox for testing.

 

I feel like I’m using Windows NT… feels old… but… stuff is where I expect it to be.  Haven't tried it on bare metal, and installing complicated things like video drivers and Adobe Audition yet… but I'd like to have some fun with it… :)
