- [Narrator] Linux is becoming a very popular server, cloud, and mobile operating system, and managing it can be complex. The Linux directory structure is deep and has many thousands of applications installed by default. Welcome to Linux: Directory Structure and Basic Tools. I'm Grant McWilliams, computer science instructor and Linux enthusiast. In this course, you'll gain foundational knowledge of the Linux directory structure and an introduction to basic tools and command-line text editing. We'll look at how to gather information about our Linux system, including how to find documentation on installed system commands.
We'll examine the Linux directory structure and how to navigate it using relative and absolute paths. I'll show you how to use basic commands to manage time and date, see who's logged in, and how to view text files. We'll also spend some time learning how to edit text files on the command line using Nano as well as the very powerful Vim editor. I love Linux, and I'm excited to teach you about it. So let's get started.
