Great analogy by William Shotts ("The Command Line").

P.S. I keep reading this wonderful book: linuxcommand.org

I'm actually in the middle of rereading The Linux Command Line right now.

It's just as good now as when I first read it – but it's been interesting to reflect back on how much I've learned sense then. So much of it seems like common sense that it's almost hard to remember *not* knowing, and not even that long ago.

@TheFuzzStone I always liked to explain the difference between Windows and Linux by using Playmobil and Lego as an analogy.

With Playmobil you can buy a set that includes a car, which has a certain form, design, color, and so on.

With Lego you build the car yourself. That requires a bit of knowledge how to combine individual parts, but manuals help you to get started. Ff you wish to pimp your car in some way, you are free to do so and it actually supported by the toy.
