Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Learning Linux Command Line.
- [Voiceover] All you really need to follow along with this course is a computer running Linux or a Linux virtual machine. If you have a Mac, you can follow along in the the Terminal as well, but keep in mind that Mac OS X isn't Linux, it's a variant of Unix, so some of what you'll see later in the course won't work. For most of the course, I'll be using a virtual machine running Fedora Workstation, but for a few movies I'll switch over to using a virtual machine running Ubuntu Desktop to show you commands that work in that environment. Don't worry too much about having both kinds of machines available.
You'll be able to keep up with all but two videos using either a Red Hat or Debian-derived machine.
This course will establish the foundation for more advanced Linux topics. Find other Linux training courses here.
