Description

Linux is a popular operating system that is used by a large cross-section of audiences including IT managers, system engineers, and network engineers. There are many distributions, or distros, of Linux. Each distro offers different experiences but they all have in common the ability to use the Command Line Interface (CLI): this is a way that a lot of people prefer to interact with the Linux operating systems instead of using the Graphical User Interface (GUI).
