Linux is an open-sourced operating system built upon a command line system. It has continued to endure a degree of popularity twenty-five years later.
If you are interested in learning how to use Linux, you’re going to have to learn programming. You will have to install the operating system on your computer. If you only have one computer, you may want to install it as a secondary OS and familiarize yourself with it that way. If you have a secondary computer that you don’t use as much, installing Linux as your primary OS is definitely your best bet.
