I like how it explains everything in general, so that we can choose a better path for ourselves later in order to learn in depth. The try-it on your own was the best part of the course.

The content is really amazing. The detailed explanation helped me a lot.

Even though I've been a Linux user for many years, I still enjoyed this course because it's a great overview. Also, obviously not everyone does everything the same way. Thus, I'm considering myself as an experienced Linux user, but still I learned a few things or a few tricks here and there, (re)discovering commands I don't or rarely use, but that can still be useful.
