Why One Should Learn Linux?
When asked about learning Linux, the first question arises is that why somebody should invest his/her time in learning Linux. There are other operating systems then why Linux.
Computing is not just about browsing the web or listening to favorite music but there is a lot that you can achieve with it. If you’re running a business, your business’s websites can be easily managed by Linux or if you’re looking for working as server administrator, then Linux is the first choice there. Today the Linux is everywhere from your mobile phones, Smart TVs, Refrigerators, Gaming consoles to Airplanes, Science labs, large industries, etc.
If you look around, approximately everything is running Linux. The major part of the Internet is built using Linux. Most of the largest websites/services are built on Linux, for example – Google, Facebook, Amazon, Amazon and you name it, it’s running on Linux. 9 out 10 supercomputers are running Linux. But the best part is that it’s increasing day by day.
In the time of this rapid growth of Linux, one must be aware of Linux to start off his journey into development. When talking about Linux it’s not just development, you can do everything general that you can with other systems. For example, you can watch your favorite movies, play games and surf the web the whole day, just easier with the power of Linux.

The Linux Foundation has introduced many other courses just focusing the new Linux users but LFD301 has something more to offer. LFD301 is not more than just the basics of Linux. Although you don’t require any previous knowledge of Linux systems.
LFD301 focuses on the introduction to Linux which is must for one to start with Linux. The second it teaches the open source development.
I have gone through the course outline and I analyzed that the course is really a good one for beginners. It teaches the introductions to Linux, Why to use open source, OSS Licensing, and Legal Issues and it also teaches Shells, bash and the command line. The complete outline you can see below this article.
