Linux uses your previous knowledge of shortcuts

Linux uses what you know about shortcut keys from other Linux distros and Windows and they work the same.

This is amazing for me. The shortcuts that I learned in Linux Mint work in OpenSuse. I did some research and it seems that many Linux distros have the same shortcuts. For example, the F11 button in Windows makes a window full screen. It does the same thing in OpenSuse Linux. This means that if you have used another Linux distro or Windows, moving doesn’t require remembering new information.

It is also kind of funny but the “windows” key on the keyboard they call the “super” key. They could have called it the Windows key. It doesn’t change mysteriously because they don’t want to promote it. I bet someone is out there selling a sticker that says “Super” on it for Linux nerds to put on their keyboard. Yeah I called them Linux nerds, I think you have to be a little nerdy to use Linux and this means I am a nerd too.

I should have realized this earlier. I shared that I had a problem with my cam and it was because by default it was off in Linux Mint. I turned it on with the function key F6. Why didn’t I generalize that to the function keys that might work in Linux? I just tested and the majority over 90% of my Function keys worked with OpenSuse. The one that didn’t was the keyboard light key which is proprietary to this MSI steelcase keyboard. I can’t fault that. Most people won’t have a gaming computer and they won’t have a high-end keyboard installed with RGB lighting. I don’t like this feature but it came with the laptop so I was forced to accept it.

It seems the most difficult thing about moving to Linux is creating a USB boot drive. With the free Rufus app in the Windows store, it makes it easy.
