    Reading, yes its that easy. If you know DOS commands look up dos vs linux commands you then see that ‘dir’ in linux ‘ls’ is. I would advice linux for dummies is easy to read later you go more advanced books http://www.dummies.com/computers/operating-systems/linux/common-linux-commands/

    I would also advise virtualbox you can install it under windows and install linux in a container you can then learn to setup linux and install and do basic stuff.

    This is good advice.

    If you do setup a play system, have a go at some of the guides on https://www.howtoforge.com/. Start with something like their Perfect Server guides.

    Also, you need to learn an editor program. nano is a great place to start, but I'd recommend vi or vim, which are a bit more complex but are available on every Unix or Unix-like operating system you will touch from here on out. When I started, I bought a vi reference coffee mug similar to this to help me out.
