If you are a Windows user, you will note some changes/differences in between the X-OS'es.
I will start this topic to poste some of them and give the chance to post/link further infos.
Here the Filesystem (hierachy, structure) explained.
Drive-letters <> mount-points
Compared to Windows, where uses drive letters for partitions, in linux we use mount-points. The partitions can be on different drives /dev/sdx. x means alphabetic letters starting with a... first drive would be /dev/sda.
The partitions are numbers. For example on first drive the first partition would be /dev/sda1 etc.
A mount point could be for example the user data ... /home on a separate partition >
/home > /dev/sda4 would mean partition 4 on drive a would be the home data /home.
