Skill Level Beginner
- Ubuntu is a very popular distribution of the free Linux operating system. Linux is powerful, but can be intimidating to new users. And Ubuntu aims to make it user friendly. I'm Scott Simpson, and I'll show you how to get started with Ubuntu. I'll show you around the desktop version of release 18.04, which is called Bionic Beaver. Ill start out with some basic history and I'll show you a few ways to install Ubuntu. You'll think up how to navigate the GNOME desktop environment quickly. I'll introduce some of the software that comes with Ubuntu desktop and then I'll show you how to accomplish some common tasks.
Finally I've show you some of the more advanced aspects that you might come across when branching out and extending your knowledge of Linux. This course is aimed at people who need to understand the basics of the desktop environment, not command LAN users or system administrators. My assumption here is that you want to start exploring Linux as an alternative to Windows or MAC OS. Or that you work for one of the many companies or organizations that are beginning to switch to Linux and you need to get a jump start in that new environment, so if you're ready, let's get started.
