  37. I liked


    Everything was near to amazing!
    One thing i think could be better is the network related part. Few time a big configuration file was shown with not explanation enough.

    Also i expected the shell scripting part to be more interesting and complicated.

  38. great knowledge


    Thank you Sir for this valuable Linux course in lockdown period I have completed .if possible please provide certificate. Sir Thank you.

  39. Good course


    Good course for everyone who wants to start Linux

  40. A good intro to linux


    This a very good introduction to Linux and helps the student understand the basics. The course is a little dry but that is the fault of linux in general.

    Worked examples would have been good. Some of th explanations are not consistent wit what is written and the last third of the course really goes into areas that are not really that relevant for a beginner and it is not easy to understand.

    There are a few typo mistakes and a few examples that don’t make sense. I would prefer if the tutor included lessons on how to troubleshoot broken or erronous installs that prevent other packages being installed, or to show how to install and use a printer which is far more inportant and useful than how to change capitlaisation or octul dump which is basically gibberish to the average Linux user.

    All in all a good start for a beginner

  41. Got the basics to feel confident


    For the rest I plan to do learning-by-doing.

  42. Great course for Linux starters


    If you’re starting to learn linux this course will help tons and will be easy to understand. Although you need to be self taught to continue and finish the course. For users already in Linux, this course will help and act as a nice-to-remember guide.

  43. Thanks for course


    The course is really interesting and can be useful for beginners to study the system. I would like to see a more detailed course that described specific Linux subsystems and why they are needed (udev, dracut, loading initramfs, working with memory and buffers, lvm, mdadm, network diagnostics). But of course this is a very useful material, thanks for your work.

  44. Good way to start the Linux course

    It was very long and for its length not very good. In some areas it went way too much into detail and sometimes it just taught you the superficial stuff (most of the time for the wrong thing).
