You’ll then move on to the basics of using the Xfce GUI desktop and the many tools Linux provides for working on the command line including virtual consoles, various terminal emulators, BASH, and other shells.

You’ll also see how to install software updates and new software, learn additional terminal emulators, and some advanced shell skills.
