Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring Ubuntu Linux, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 1 Introduction to Computers.
- Let's have a little fun and talk about,…where's my propeller?…Linux.…Now, Linux is considered by many people to be a nerdy…operating system and well, since I'm a nerd,…I like that.…I think I'm kind of a nerdy person who likes nerdy…operating systems and that's why I want to give you a quick…tour of Linux right now.…But before I fire up Linux and show you Linux,…let's make sure we understand what Linux is.…Most operating systems, for example Windows or OS 10…are closed or proprietary operating systems.…
These are developed and complied and put together…and handed to you by either Microsoft or Apple.…You can't look at the code.…By law you're not allowed to try to reverse engineer it…and figure out how anybody's done anything.…Not to say people don't do that, but you're not…supposed to.…And they set everything up for you.…If you get OS 10 you will use the OS 10 desktop.…You will use whatever OS 10 file system that is hot…right there.…You're going to use the networking stack that allows you…to talk to other computers on the network.…
In this introductory course, Mike Meyers explains the basics of how a computer works and the operational procedures that are key to any well-running IT team, including soft skills such as professionalism, communication, and safety. In Chapter 2, Mike tours the four most recent versions of Windows, as well as the OS X and Ubuntu Linux operating systems. He shows how to navigate to essential tools in each OS and explains how to manage virtual memory (RAM).
