How to start with Manjaro Linux - Introduction to Linux
« on: 12. April 2016, 20:52:47 »
Hi all,

to make it easier for our support team I strongly recommend to all newcomers to Linux to study at least followed free course from the Linux Foundation: Introduction to Linux.

About this course

Develop a good working knowledge of Linux using both the graphical interface and command line, covering the major Linux distribution families.

Linux powers 94% of the world’s supercomputers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and a billion Android devices. In short, Linux is everywhere. It appears in many different architectures, from mainframes to server to desktop to mobile and on a staggeringly wide variety of hardware.

Moreover, 97 percent of hiring managers reported that they will prioritize hiring Linux talent relative to other skills areas in the next six months, and 44 percent of hiring managers saying they’re more likely to hire a candidate with Linux certification.

This course explores the various tools and techniques commonly used by Linux system administrators and end users to achieve their day-to-day work in a Linux environment. It is designed for experienced computer users who have limited or no previous exposure to Linux, whether they are working in an individual or Enterprise environment.

Upon completion of this training you should have a good working knowledge of Linux, from both a graphical and command line perspective, allowing you to easily navigate through any of the major Linux distributions. You will be able to continue your progress as either a user, system administrator or developer using the acquired skill set.

Join the 250,000+ students who are already enrolled in this course and start your Linux journey.

What you'll learn
  • A good working knowledge of Linux
  • How to navigate through major Linux distributions
  • System configurations and graphical interface of Linux
  • Basic command line operations
  • Common applications of Linux
This will totally reduce most of the questions you might have.
