In this module, you started learning how to work from the command line to interact with computers and other devices on the network. Working in a CLI (command-line interface) can feel intimidating and unfamiliar, especially if you have not used a CLI before. But, it also might provide options to automate functions and to do tasks you cannot do from a GUI. Think about your experiences during this module and in the past using both a GUI and a CLI, and do a little reading online to learn about other people’s perspectives on this issue. Then respond to the following questions:
· What are some advantages of working with a GUI? Give an example of when a GUI is a better fit for the task.
Question about Linux Distros
Because Linux is a free, open source operating system, many companies and individuals have developed their own version of Linux. Each of these is called a distribution, or distro for short. You have already worked with Ubuntu (pronounced oo-boon-too). Other popular Linux distros include MX Linux, Linux Mint, Debian, Elementary OS, Fedora, openSUSE (pronounced soo-suh), and Kali Linux. Note that while the Linux OS itself is free, some distros include other tools, trademarks, or support services, which incur a charge. One example of this is the robust Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Do some research online about three of these Linux distros, Then respond to the following question:
· Which three Linux distros did you research?
