In this tutorial series, we'll see how to use the Linux Command Line.
Before we get our hands dirty, please print out your very own Command Line Cheatsheet. It's a good reference to have, so print it out and tape it to your wall where it's clearly visible!
Click on the above links and download the two pieces of software. Once installed, create a new virtual machine and select the Ubuntu iso as your platform. Make sure you go into your Virtual Machine and download VMware tools to have your VM fully incorporated to your host system.
If you're having trouble with any of the setup, try Googling error messages or commenting below!
If you're on a Mac, you're partly in luck! Mac is built on top of a Unix platform, meaning it comes equipped with its own terminal with commands that are very similar to that of Linux.
To open the terminal, simply search for "Terminal" in your launcher, (⌘+Space).
If you want a highly customizable, and more pleasant version of the Terminal, I recommend you download iTerm2.
The Mac OS X command line is very similar to Linux Command Line, but you'll see a few commands are a tad bit different.
If you're on a Windows, simply download Cygwin, which allows for a similar interface as a terminal on a Unix platform.
If you're on Windows 10, it will be better to simply install the Bash Shell.
If you're running Linux, there is a Terminal you can launch by searching "Terminal." On Ubuntu, you can easily open this by holding Ctrl+Alt+T.
