The shell is the basic element of interaction with a Linux system. No matter what GUI desktops may exist, the shell is always there and ready to execute your commands. In this lab, we'll explore what shells are available, what makes up the shell environment, and the different ways to log in, executing the shell's environment as needed for our task.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
