The fact that I'm learning Linux from the creators and supporters of Linux itself. I am so pleased with all of the little new things I learned / will continue to learn, because of the Linux Foundation offering this course for free! I did opt to get the certificate, after passing the exam, so I'm excited about that.

The simplicity of it. The trainers were absolutely on point, and they explained everything they were doing in the videos. Also, the texts are simple to understand, with the bold letters indicating the important bits and commands. The whole thing generally was so well thought out, perfectly executed, and made the experience perfect for a new learner. 10/10 - Loved it, thanks!

It was easy to understand, even for a non-native English speaker like me. The content is pretty good, and covers the most useful knowledge about GNU/Linux and basic administration of systems. For the price, I would say that everybody should do this course to learn how to use GNU/Linux.
