Migrating to Linux from Mac or Windows? Get up and running with Fedora, a popular desktop Linux distribution. Learn how to get around the interface, work with files and folders, perform basic computing tasks, and even configure a simple server.
- [Voiceover] Hi, and welcome to up and running with Fedora Linux. I am Scott Simpson and in this course we'll take a quick look at Fedora version 21. We'll start out looking at the installation options. And then we'll jump into the workstation environment, which is the desktop version of Fedora. I'll show you around the system settings and give you a quick look at some of the included software packages. Then we'll take a quick look at some basic computing tasks. After that, we'll jump into a brief tour of the command line. And then we'll take a look at the server environment. If you're a developer, hobbyist or IT person, it's great to have at least some familiarity with a Linux distribution.
And if you're looking to switch to Linux from Windows or Mac OS 10, Fedora workstation is a great place to start.
