Getting Linux Running in Windows – So You Can Learn How to Use Linux in Windows – Online!
Now you can download a free Linux virtual machine â€œplayerâ€ and a free Linux virtual machine so you can run Linux in Windows.
You just download and quickly install the free Linux virtual machine â€œplayerâ€ program, the same way you install any Windows program. This takes about twenty minutes.
Then download a free Linux virtual machine and uncompress the virtual machine files from the Linux download file into a folder on your Windows hard disk. Not including the download time, this takes about ten minutes. There is a sample Linux video (free) that shows every step of how to this.
Linux Tips: There are hundreds of free Linux virtual machines available for download (at many locations on the Internet) for lots of popular Linux distributions (versions). This includes: Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux, Red Hat Linux, Fedora Linux, SUSE Linux and lots more!
Next, you run the virtual machine player and open a virtual machine in the same way as you run a word processor and open a document – and you easily get Linux in Windows!
So, now you have a fully functional version of Linux running in a â€œwindowâ€ in Windows. And you can run Linux software programs from the Linux desktop and also open a terminal emulation window, to get to the Linux command line prompt, to run Linux commands.
Linux Tips: There are 130 + Linux distributions and various methods of opening a terminal emulation window on the Linux desktop to run Linux commands. Use these steps: click on the icon that looks like a computer screen – or right-click on the desktop and select â€œLinux Terminalâ€ (or â€œLinux Consoleâ€, or similar) – or look through the menus and select â€œLinux Terminalâ€ (â€Linux Consoleâ€ or similar).

To go to the Linux â€œwindowâ€ (in Windows), hold down the Alt key (at the left of the spacebar on your keyboard) and press the Tab key and the Linux window appears.
Now you can run the Linux command you have just seen – and experiment a bit!
Then hold down Alt and press Tab and go to the Linux video window so you can watch a bit more of the Linux video to learn some more options of the command.
Then press Alt+Tab again, to go to the Linux command line prompt, in the Linux window and try the new Linux command options. And so on.
This is an excellent and easy way to get real, practical Linux training!
